The Project
We are looking for an experienced product manager to lead a cross-functional team — that includes our partners — through an 8-week discovery sprint to understand and help reform the organ donation system in the U.S.

Despite overwhelming national support for organ donation, 33 Americans die every day waiting for an organ transplant, or are removed from the waiting list for becoming too sick to receive the transplant. As the New York Times Editorial Board wrote, an “astounding lack of accountability and oversight in the nation’s creaking, monopolistic organ transplant system is allowing hundreds of thousands of potential organ donations to fall through the cracks.”

We’re partnering with a nonprofit organization to run a discovery sprint to help research and design how we might dramatically improve outcomes through supply chain mapping, policy change, and technology improvements.

In this role, you will:
  • Lead a cross functional team of designers, developers, and subject matter experts to conduct research and distill insights. This includes holding daily standups, managing retrospective meetings, and providing regular updates.

  • Navigate complex situations with empathy and kindness
