Overview

Overview

The senior project manager provides strategic, experience-based leadership while managing all day-to-day operational aspects of projects, project teams, budgets, scope, and client communications on Teague projects and programs.  A strong appreciation for design and collaborating with creative teams is critical to delivering compelling results. This role manages large, complex, multi-discipline projects to successful completion supporting scoping/framing new projects, planning budgets and resources, building project teams, managing team dynamics and work productivity, and handling all internal and client communications.  

 

Why We Need This Position

Great project management is much more than keeping a project on track.

Senior project managers at Teague’s Global Design Studio (GDS) exemplify servant leadership and collaboration, freeing teams up to do their best work while keeping an eye on studio and business objectives. They unite diverse clients from startups to Fortune 500 companies with their design team, and manage a portfolio of work that spans all manner of industries and opportunities but is always focused on improving people’s lives—from new modes of mass transportation to government policy to cool things for kids to autonomous vehicles to airports and space stations to industrial internet-of-things. 



Who We Are Looking For

We’re seeking an organized, big-picture thinker with a love of creatives and design. You can clearly articulate expectations to your colleagues, and are determined to deliver 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. You have an ability to work through ambiguity to create clarity, and make decisions as a mechanism of moving things forward. In short, we’re looking for a leader with a strong creative streak, a charismatic personality and an unwaveringly calm approach to the unexpected.
