Job description

OpenClassrooms’ purpose is to make career mobility accessible to everyone, everywhere through quality online education. 🌎

We are the leading online education platform in Europe and Africa, offering fully-accredited online diplomas and programs for the most in-demand skills. Each month 3 millions learners from more than 120 countries use our products and services to develop their skills.

We are now looking for a passionate and ambitious Production Manager to join us in helping anyone become future proof.

As a Learning Technology company, our Product organization brings Content and Technology under the same leadership.

As a Senior Production Manager in the Content team (also known as Learning), you will own and develop a specific category of the content catalogue. Your mission will be to ensure the product/market fit so that the studio only produces content that learners love and the labor market really needs.

This eLearning studio brings together a vibrant and creative team of product leaders (like you), video directors, project managers, instructional, graphic & motions designers as well as a growing network of subject matter experts to try and craft world-class online learning experiences.


Your role will span across 3 main areas of responsibility:

  • Content Strategy: As the owner of a section of the catalogue you will be responsible for defining your content roadmap ,and maximizing the business and career outcomes of your product portfolio. In other words, you will be expected to translate the company’s mission and overall strategy into a compelling product vision that creates maximum value for our beneficiaries.

  • Content Production: Together with the relevant team members, you will also be responsible for turning this vision into tangible products that customers can enjoy. In other words, to guide the team in executing against your roadmap. In order to do that, you will need to lead small production teams throughout content delivery by kicking off production with clear specifications, managing scope, growing a pool of high-profile SMEs, and alleviating roadblocks when needed. Your goal here will be for content to be released on time, meeting requirements and without exceeding budget or the team production capacity.

  • Revenue Enablement: Because of your product knowledge you will be the go-to person for any question regarding your division of the catalogue. You will then work hand-in-hand with Product Marketing to present and promote the content as well as with Account executives to sell it. You will be expected to regularly meet directly with clients in high-stake situations to pitch our solutions and thereby gather insights to feed back into your content strategy and content specifications.
