Modern Tribe

Digital Project Manager

  • Contract: Full-time

Job Description

We’re looking for a talented and experienced digital project manager in North America for future openings on our PM team. We’re a WordPress agency so hopefully you have run some projects with the platform.

If you are drawn to order like a moth to a flame, then drop us a line. If you like maintaining lists and seeing team members make progress because you set them up to succeed, then you are perfect for this gig.

If you are skilled in agile, waterfall and whatever-suits-the-project techniques, then we should talk.

To be transparent, this is NOT a Digital Producer role. We have Strategists that you will be working with as well as UX team members. This gig is about organization and management more than it is about creative input.

Responsibilities Your primary responsibility is to shepherd the project to success. We pride ourselves on our projects arriving on time, on scope, on budget with a happy team and customer. You will create confidence through organization and oversee communication. To do this, you will need to:

  • Manage scope, timeline and budget execution
  • Manage expectations for everyone on a project including the team, the account managers, and the customer
  • Run scrums and other status meetings
  • Review team hours
  • Write SOWs
  • Review budget
  • Set up and maintain tickets in the management system
  • Manage collection of assets and information from the customer
  • Perform meeting prep, prepare agendas, and handle all follow up
  • Produce weekly and monthly summary reports

Skill Requirements

Personal Competencies

  • Strong communication and/or experience working as part of a remote team
  • Self-motivated, detail-oriented, strong organizational skills, with a methodical approach to all tasks
  • Ability to prioritize workloads and meet deadlines
  • Ability to work independently with minimal oversight
  • Fluent English speaker

Required Knowledge & Experience

  • At least 5 years of experience working as a PM, ideally on a distributed web design / dev team
  • Experience with agile and waterfall management styles
  • Experience producing large CMS powered websites
  • A whiz when it comes to online collaboration tools. You feel at home when we talk about Slack, Google Hangout, Google Docs, Dropbox or any number of online PM tools.
  • Experience managing projects with budgets of at least $100k ($250k preferred)

Additional Experience (Bonus Points)

  • Experience with WordPress
  • Technical experience as a frontend or backend developer
  • Experience with enterprise level web development projects
  • Design experience
