Digital Project Manager (Level 1):
Detail-focused. Super organized. Technically savvy. These are the three top characteristics we'd use to describe the type of person we're looking for. And friendly. That's four.
You're the kind of person who is obsessive about planning and great at communicating those plans. You appreciate directness and clarity. When everyone else is wasting time going back and forth with a series of ambiguous emails or texts, you're the one with the common sense to just pick up the phone and have a call. Inefficiency bothers you, and order delights you.
You also technically savvy—whether it's running your own blog, instructing family members to restart their computer when stuff stops working, or keeping up to date with the newest social platforms. Oh, here's another thing: you don't hate Excel. Maybe you even like it.
As a Level 1 Project Manager we don't expect you to bring much agency or applied project management experience. We do expect solid organizational skills, a keen mind, and a strong work ethic. An ideal candidate will be curious about the world of Digital Project Management and interested in becoming a part of the DPM community—someone with pragmatic sensibilities but also a beginner's mind.
A great fit would be someone who does best when given autonomy in their day to day, but who isn't shy about asking for help when needed. In your day to day you'll be working closely with experienced project managers and assisting them with project coordination. You'll also be working with a handful of smaller clients. If you have a natural knack for working with others, you will thrive in this role.
If this sounds like you, and you're ready to take on new challenges in the fast-paced world of digital project management, we'd love to talk with you.
To be successful as a Level 1 Digital Project Manager at WSOL, you'll need to be prepared to:
- Learn how to set up project plans using our project management software.
- Build out project schedules and assign tasks for project work.
- Collaborate with different team members to gather estimates and collect implementation details.
- Demonstrate strong written and verbal communication skills—you can communicate in a clear fashion (and possess the wisdom to use tools that help you avoid spelling and grammatical errors).
- Talk with humans on a telephone.
- Take detailed notes on calls and enter notes into different systems.
- Learn the lingo and build an understanding of different terms commonly used in the web design and development world.
- Spend a lot of time looking at dates, dollars, and hours.
WSOL offers a full line of benefits including medical, dental, vision, 401K savings plan, short/long term disability and life insurance. Unlimited personal time, generous vacation time, free lunches on Wednesdays and the opportunity to give back to our community through our WSOL Cares initiatives are other reasons to work here. Most importantly we provide an engaging and collaborative environment that lets everyone fulfill their goals.
