FranklinCovey Summary

 (NYSE: FC) is one of the world's largest leadership companies with 1,000 employees, 1,500 clients and 2,000,000+ learners. We help organizations achieve greatness on the four people-related challenges that matter most: leadership, individual effectiveness, culture and business processes. Our unique approach combines content, technology and people to generate collective behavior change at scale. Our core product, the FranklinCovey All Access Pass®, provides companies access to 20+ courses in multiple modalities and in >20 languages. The All Access Pass has grown from $0 to $100MM in recurring revenue in the last five years, making it among the fastest growing products in edtech.


Role Context

Historically FC primarily offered in-person, one-off training. Over the last five years, we have made substantial investments, and have had significant success, transitioning the business to an online, subscription product (AAP). Earlier this year we acquired

, an edtech startup whose leadership development platform was used by leading tech cos like Slack, Airbnb, Pinterest and Intuit. Under the Strive's team direction and leadership, we are doubling down on their technology/product-centric approach and looking to build out a large product and engineering team.


Role Summary

The Product Operations Specialist will assist and execute on product strategy, platform experience, and provide support for customers, users and internal teams. In this role, you’ll play an integral role in the management, oversight, and support of FranklinCovey’s Digital Platforms including (a) the All Access Pass (AAP) platform (b) the Admin Platform and (c) the Jhana Platform.


This role is cross-functional, and you’ll work closely with Product, Design, Engineering, Learning Design, Localization, Sales, and Operations teams to aid and support the day-to-day operation of FranklinCovey’s Digital Platforms.


Major Responsibilities:

  • Assist with product & platform management and maintenance.
  • Build, deploy, and test course content across different platforms
  • Work directly with internal teams and clients to identify, triage, and solve technical issues

Job Requirements

What We're Looking For

  • At least 2+ years’ technical support experience with web apps
  • Ability to interpret, assess, and resolve user issues
  • Impeccable communication & collaboration skills
  • Client-facing support and interaction
  • Ability to manage multiple, time-sensitive projects
  • Innovative & inventive - provides unique solutions to problems both big and small


Why We Think This is a Great Opportunity

  • Impact at Scale – FranklinCovey positively impacts the lives of millions of learners and tens of millions of their direct reports every year – FC's directly teaches 4x as many learners in the US as all US business schools combined! By building out platform integrations for learning and planning in the flow of work, you'll substantially increase the quality of the learning experience and thus improve the skills and experiences of that enormous audience.
  • Startup Speed, Established Company Security – FranklinCovey's product & tech org is small relative to the company's learner/client scale, so you'll be able to move quickly to build a strategy and ship great products. Unlike a startup, FC is an established (and profitable!) publicly traded company, so you won't worry about the next funding round falling through and a lack of job security.
