Positiv.ly will be the first spin-out of Ascend Innovation’s startup studio. The Product Manager of Positiv.ly plays a key role in leading the product's launch, spinout, and growth. The Product Manager will be an employee of Ascend Innovations and will benefit from the stability and services available from the larger parent company. While Ascend is based in Dayton, the team is already working in a hybrid fashion and this role is open to remote talent.
Positiv.ly is a new platform developed for middle and high school students that helps to reduce the barrier of access to mental health resources. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide have almost doubled in the last ten years, and our schools are in a crisis mode responding to their students’ needs. The app fights the barriers created by stigma through shared stories about mental health, and trusted staff at a school curates the content. Positiv.ly also closes the gap between students and professional community resources through a hyper-local directory with vetted professional services.
Ascend is a socially impactful, mission-driven technology company that provides data-driven products and consulting services to help organizations solve complex community health problems. Formed by the Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association and three major hospital networks (Premier Health, Kettering Health, and Dayton Children’s), Ascend is positioned to serve all communities to address their most complex health problems.
We believe that life does not equal work. We believe in being direct with positive intent and leading each interaction with empathy. We are intentional about giving first. We kindly poke the bear. We laugh (A LOT). We believe that teamwork makes the dream work. And most of all, we believe that our differences make us stronger.
The Product Manager is responsible for leading the product strategy of the burgeoning mental health start-up. This includes managing the product vision, identifying customer problems, defining Jobs to be Done, facilitating prototyping, driving market research, and collaborating with the development and design teams.
This role is key to executing the Positiv.ly product vision and a central hub for collaboration among the Positiv.ly team.
