Save The Children


Our Product Manager will be part of a team helping to change the lives of millions of children around the world.

As part of Library For All's leadership team, you'll create positive impact for children around the world by contributing to the continued growth and innovative iteration of Library For All's technology products and services. As we deliver a culturally diverse and age appropriate library of illustrated children's books and educational resources, in partnership with the world's leading aid and development agencies.

We've already changed the lives of more than 250,000 children, and with your help we can grow that to 20 million before the end of this decade.


As a social enterprise of Save the Children Australia, our mission is to make knowledge accessible to all equally. We have a proud history of using technology to disrupt traditional publishing models, and we leverage technology and innovation in our everyday work to improve educational outcomes for children around the world. As a trusted partner to many of the world's leading development agencies, we're laser focused on scaling our impact to create measurable change for millions more children.


In this full-time, permanent position based in Brisbane, you will be responsible for managing our index of technology hardware and software products and services. Reporting to the Chief Technology Officer, you will lead the scoping, documentation, design and engineering of class-leading solutions for Android, iOS, and Web platforms.

You will make an impact by strategically:

  • Leading the delivery of Library For All's technology globally
  • Collaborating with cross-functional teams to improve our existing products and services, and develop new products and services
  • Supporting the Chief Technology Officer with leading key technology capabilities on behalf of the organisation
  • Providing technical guidance to internal customers, external customers and our engineers, developers and contractors
  • Continuously discovering, evaluating, and implementing new technologies to maximise development efficiency

Library For All's Product Manager will also work closely with members of Save the Children's global movement to advance our goal to be recognised as experts in harnessing a class-leading collection of relevant and culturally diverse content and innovative technology to improve educational outcomes for children around the world.


You're an experienced technology professional who demonstrates pro-activity, solutions orientation and entrepreneurialism. You have exceptional interpersonal skills, including well-developed stakeholder relationship management skills and a flexible communication style. You thrive in a highly innovative, agile, and high performing environment and you think and act strategically in response to changing objectives. You set and achieve bold goals, while working autonomously in a fast-growing organisation. And importantly, you share our passion for delivering better educational outcomes for children, using technology as an enabler.

This role requires:

  • Strong experience as a Product Manager (or Project Manager) leading the development and ongoing support of technology products and services, both hardware and software
  • Strong leadership experience, both as a line manager and project manager
  • Solid knowledge of mobile and web development environments
  • An ability to scope and interpret stakeholder software requirements and deliver effective technology solutions
  • Highly developed interpersonal communication, facilitation and consultation skills, with the ability to manage project relationships and liaise and negotiate with a diverse range of stakeholders
  • A detailed understanding of mobile app development (Android and/or iOS),
  • An understanding of ETL processes, relational databases, data mining, and experience with Linux based development
  • Experience with some of our technology stack would be beneficial, though not mandatory:
  • Android (Java & Kotlin)
  • iOS
  • C#, Python & PostgreSQL
  • PowerBI
  • JS
  • GitHub/Git
