Project Manager

The Project Manager plays an integral role in managing agency projects, keeping them on time and within budget from start to completion.

A successful Project Manager must be a driven self-starter, extremely organized, and able to coordinate and monitor the daily details of projects. You are responsible for championing the agency’s goals and objectives, working with agency stakeholders to help achieve efficiency, maximize profitability, and anticipate and mitigate challenges. You thrive in a high energy, fast-paced environment, have exceptional organizational skills, a proactive attitude, excellent people skills, and a sincere interest in the client(s) business. A sense of humor always helps, too!

You are responsible for helping the agency accomplish stated project objectives and will have exposure to all facets of agency functions, allowing you to gain knowledge and contribute to our success throughout the organization. You must be able to successfully collaborate with a variety of people in different capacities and levels that include cross-functional teams such as Creative, Digital, Web, PR/Social, Strategy, Media, Production and Account Management.

Although no two days are ever the same, some of your day to day may look a little like this: ongoing project management and planning, budget management, timeline development, day-to-day internal communication and collaboration, and creative problem solving.
