The challenges faced by everyone involved in the education sector are numerous and complex. As Management Associates, we are given the responsibility to tackle some of that challenges through our projects. In doing so, not only are we being responsible to the managers, but also to the student population we serve. This motivates us to make our products as relevant as possible to cater to the students needs. Our mentors also give us plentiful opportunities to voice our opinion, allowing us to make decisions, make mistakes, and turn them into valuable lessons.
Becoming a member of Ruangguru family in the Management Associate Program has been a really rewarding experience. As Ruangguru is advancing at a rapid pace, it allows me to work on fascinating challenges and great opportunities to grow together. The program has been the foundation of my growth and helped me establish a long-term career in product management.
Associate Product Manager, MAP Alumni
“The presence of MAP individuals have proved to be very impactful. Not only are they reliable, they also have capacity to jump start their own projects. One of the examples of their impact to the Content team is the initiation of our Vocational School (SMK) content. The MAP individual was assigned to build an entirely new team from its initial research, all the way to the finished product. The task was accomplished and their legacy continues on. To this day, the MAP individual remained to create a lasting impact to the Content team, both to the project, and to other employees as well.”
“The I've had the pleasure to work closely with 2 Management Associates during their rotations at the K-12 Product Team, and in my opinion they were some of the brightest colleagues I've ever worked with. They were expected to deliver impact from Day 1 and they sure did not disappoint. They were able to learn new things very quickly, very proactive in contributing new ideas to solve problems and were able to collaborate really well with all the stakeholders. They had the grit and the mindset to achieve and be successful in the roles assigned to them and I believe they are well positioned to be the future leaders of this organization.”
