Job Description

Why you?
You are someone who brings your life experience to create products that truly make a difference in the lives of working parents. You use data to inform roadmaps, but you also know when you have enough information for action. You love the challenge of prioritizing user needs amongst multiple business objectives. You enjoy growing from diverse perspectives and coworkers while collaborating with others in a cross-functional team, and across departments.

You are looking for something more from your job. Maybe a bigger problem to solve with both immediate and long term impact, or perhaps you just need a mission you can believe in every day. You are scrappy and collaborative while looking to join an inclusive and supportive culture with a bias for action. You dig balanced startup life and can wrestle challenges with grace. You love big, interesting problems and bringing solutions to the masses while making sure it feels personal, authentic and connected. If this sounds like you, we'd like to talk.

Why us?
The Mom Project is a venture-backed startup HQ'd in a suite open space in Chicago's River North neighborhood. We are backed by some of the best investors in the world and are lucky to be surrounded by an incredible team of advisors.

We strive towards inclusion and that means everyone is comfortable bringing their authentic and best self to work every day.

What you’ll do:

An Insider's view of The Mom Project

What's something quirky about your company?

It's a dog-eat-dog world around here... but in the best way possible. We love our furry friends! The more, the merrier.

Katie

Marketing & Partnerships

What projects are you most excited about?

I wouldn't say there is just one type of project I am most excited about (mostly because we have so many!). I will say that it's truly rewarding to be a sounding board for the women in our community looking for jobs. Some of them have never before been able to discuss their families while in the midst of their job search.

Mandy

Talent Success Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Someone who is organized, driven, action-oriented and able to multitask like a boss can be successful on our team. Also, if you can communicate well with your teammates and celebrate their wins with them, you can be successful at The Mom Project!

Lara

Sr. Manager, Talent Success

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to be creative by taking short spans (2-3 days) where we completely step out of our day-to-day work and focus on larger ideas. By unshackling from the "to-do" list and flexing our brains in a different way, we come up with incredibly interesting and creative solutions that we may not have if we were stuck to a meeting agenda.

Colleen

Head of Community & Marketing

How does the company support your career growth?

After my youngest turned four, I started to think about going back to work. I wasn't sure of the opportunities that would be available to me after a break in employment. The Mom Project provided me with an opportunity to get back in the game. And now I get to help other women do the same!

Talent Success Manager
