Walker Sands is looking for a detail-oriented project manager to join our team.

Daily work will include managing the progress of all internal aspects of agency projects; projects don’t succeed without a project manager. This will include scoping new projects, creating timelines, managing communication with internal team members (writers, designers, developers, SEO analysts, client service representatives and occasionally Senior level management) and ensuring that we’re progressing according to the approved timeline.

A PM’s responsibilities will also include setting up internal meetings, recording and sharing notes, communicating with clients and internal resources, organizing assets on Google Drive, maintaining project timelines and ensuring daily progress, performing quality checks to ensure accuracy of deliverables, leading project status meetings, monitoring budget/hours allocations on projects, and overall acting as “go-to” for all internal team members on projects.

The project manager will receive direct support from the group’s senior staff during the scoping phase of the project (development of timeline, estimate, SOW) and then some ongoing supervision through the production phase of the project. But a successful candidate should be detail-oriented, organized and able to work independently when needed.
