EF Tours helps students gain new perspectives and build skills for the future through experiential learning. As an accredited institution, we partner with educators across the United States to create global travel programs that blend classroom, digital, and experiential learning for students.

The Tours Engineering team is a hub of talented product managers, engineers and creative professionals empowering EF to send groups of students and educators on guided educational tours across the world. We power every step of our customer's journey from showcasing our tour offerings, to creating personalized itineraries, and collecting their feedback after the tour.

We're seeking a passionate, energetic, entrepreneurial Product Owner to lead the development for our consumer-facing web properties. You'll leverage your knowledge in marketing, technology, and creative to articulate a vision and grow the business through our public websites. Then you'll take the lead to make that vision a reality.

  • You'll obsess over the user experience, understanding customers' biggest pain points, and then identify the most valuable problems for your team to solve.

  • You'll flex your strategic muscles, seeing three steps ahead, naturally anticipating roadblocks and realizing opportunities for growth that others may not immediately see.

  • You'll sit alongside developers, designers, and marketers, sketching roadmaps and constructing plans. And you'll roll up your sleeves with the team, turning those plans into tactics and action.

  • And you'll effortlessly charm your colleagues and coworkers with your happy disposition, and can-do attitude routinely making the impossible, possible, and everyone around you better.

  • Transparently communicate priorities and progress, preparing the business and the market for upcoming changes/releases
