We are looking for a reliable Project Manager who will join our team to help coordinate, organize and shepherd our projects to success with a variety of government, nonprofit and education clients.
This position requires someone who is both people-savvy and tech-savvy. We are not looking for an agile/scrum technical project manager. Rather, we are looking for someone who understands what those methodologies are but is client-facing and can manage overall project scope, strategy, resourcing, budget and timeline.
You should have at least three years of direct experience managing web design and web application development projects in the $50K to $500K range.
Position requires a true detail oriented and organized approach. As a small agency we require our project managers to wear many hats and balance a variety of skills from effective writing, strategy and business requirement gathering to client relationship management.
You should feel comfortable collaborating with a small team to develop an approach and solution to the project at hand and then diligently break up a project into key components, milestones, stories and tasks, organize tasks in a management tool such as Jira or Asana, and liaise both internally and with the client to oversee progress from discovery and design to development, user acceptance testing and deployment.
Project Manager responsibilities are:
Develop project scopes and objectives, involving all relevant stakeholders and ensuring technical feasibility
Organize and coordinate internal resources and third parties/vendors for the flawless execution of projects
Oversee the timely delivery of all projects, ensuring they remain within scope and within budget
Allocate resources and ensure their availability
Prepare a detailed project plan to track progress
Monitor project performance with the help of appropriate systems, tools and techniques
Manage changes in project scope, schedule and costs with the help of appropriate verification techniques
Prepare reports and present them to internal and external senior management as needed
Maintain relations with the client and all stakeholders
Analyze and manage risks in order to minimize negative effect on a project
Build and maintain relationships with third parties/vendors
Prepare and review comprehensive project documentation
Project Manager requirements are:
3+ years experience working as a Project Manager for an agency or in a position relating to web design and web application development projects.
Excellent client-facing and internal communication skills
Outstanding organizational skills including attention to detail and multi-tasking skills
Good practical experience with Microsoft Office and Google G-Suite
Strong written and verbal communication skills
Complete educational background
Additional certification such as PMP or PRINCE II will be a bonus
