Paragon One makes experiential learning more scalable for students and companies. Our product, Remote Externships, are a more accessible form of internships for students. For companies like Facebook, Zillow, and HP, remote externships act as early talent identification and training programs that attract and engage more diverse student populations. Paragon One was founded by MIT alums and backed by YCombinator, Jason Calacanis, Foundation Capital, University Ventures, and Learn Capital.

We are looking for a strategic and entrepreneurial minded Product Manager to join an exciting and fast-paced team. This role is a good fit for someone who is adept at navigating ambiguity, can connect the dots between different opportunities, and has a passion for building a bridge between education and the workforce for students.
