As part of this larger group, we coordinate closely with colleagues focused on sourcing new mentors, providing general student support, creating a vibrant student community, and creating new products that drive a better and more efficient experience for everyone.Responsibilities:

  • Overall: the Manager is responsible for both daily operations that support mentors and reviewers to designing and implementing new and improved programs and processes. Ultimately, the Manager is responsible for key performance metrics such as mentor and reviewer ratings and gross margins.

  • Operational execution of key team tasks: to support, engage and coordinate compensation with Finance for our mentors and reviewers, the Manager will oversee: payments, community and individual support through Slack and Zendesk, email campaigns to provide company updates along with positive and constructive feedback to mentors and reviewers, and offboarding or temporarily pausing mentor assignments due to vacations, etc. In addition, the Manager will be responsible for ensuring new projects have qualified reviewers available, that the quality of reviews remains high, and that students can benefit from engaging with their counterparts on our Knowledge platform.

  • Managing a Global Team: team members located in the US and India work on the daily delivery of these operational tasks will report directly to the Manager, Student Services. The Manager for Mentors and Reviews will be responsible for their daily work and overall performance. As needed the Manager will onboard and train new team members, and work with the team on professional development.

  • Improving Processes to Drive Results: the Manager will be a crucial driver in helping Udacity continue to refine and improve its mentorship and reviewer models. Through coordination with product, engineering, data, and other teams, the Manager will seek insight on mentor performance to drive higher levels of student engagement, project completion, and graduation while also reducing plagiarized project submissions. The Manager will work with the team to link top performing mentors with more students, remove underperforming mentors, introduce new programs that help all mentors improve their performance (e.g. webinars, user interfaces, mentor dashboards, welcome flows and expectation setting, etc.), integrate mentor feedback into Nanodegree content revisions and improvements, and even work on revising Udacity's overall mentor program to continue improving the student experience.
  • Reducing Costs: the Manager will also work to drive down mentor- and reviewer-related costs. This includes working with the data team to analyze expenditures, highlight any correlation between expenses and performance (e.g. student progress and graduation), and work with other managers and leaders to roll out new or improved programs and processes that reduce expenditures.
