The Senior Project Manager is responsible for all the day-to-day operational aspects of projects, project teams, budgets, scope, and client communications on design projects with a digital focus. The role manages large, complex, multi-resource projects and brings them to successful completion and on budget, meeting or exceeding client expectations.
Why We Need This Position
The Senior Project Manager is like a choreographer who must not only ensure that each dancer performs to the best of their ability, but also that their moves are in sync with those of the group. Without the deft guidance of a strong leader, dancers—and designers—can all too easily go astray and derail the success of the entire show. The PM ensures that everyone stays on course, striving to exceed client expectations every step of the way.
Who We’re Looking For
A supremely well-organized, big-picture taskmaster with a love of creatives and design. It’s your job to manage the myriad components of a given project and to shepherd it seamlessly through the various channels to successful happy-client completion. This means managing the project team and scope while balancing budget, quality, staffing resources and schedule and closely tracking its progress every step of the way. You are a firm believer in clearly articulating expectations to your colleagues, and determined to deliver nothing less than the absolute best to your clients. You are adept at coordinating a diverse team’s talents and can diplomatically resolve conflicts and smooth over tensions. You keep a cool head when project needs change and are quick to come up with innovative solutions to challenges as they arise. In short, we’re looking for a benevolent dictator with a strong creative streak, a charismatic personality and an unwaveringly calm approach to the unexpected.
