Digital Project Manager

We're on the lookout for a technically-savvy, hyper-attentive PM eager to grab the helm on a handful of projects for our ongoing retainer clients. As the ideal candidate, you are borderline obsessive-compulsive about project coordination: managing feature requests, tracking tasks, and aligning sprints. You have accumulated a toolbox of tricks that help you set teams up to ship better work faster. 

As a seasoned PM, your expertise isn't just theoretical—you've got applied knowledge, gained through years of accumulated experience that makes you well-suited to lead projects from beginning to end. You've paid your dues in the early stages of your career, and you've survived the trials and tribulations of dealing with technically complex projects and high maintenance clients 

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 neededYou'll thrive in this role if you have a natural knack for working with others. Your client and team interactions serve as a model for others You have moved beyond just being an expert coordinator, and are (or are on the path to becoming) an expert facilitator  

If you love the fast-paced world of digital project management, and consider yourself a burgeoning thought leader, please apply. We're not just looking for anyone who's technical, organized and people-focused—we are searching for somebody who wants to make an impact, and whose contributions will help steer our clients strategically.
