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 involve 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 client 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.
We work in an open-office environment which makes it easier to collaborate as we generate new ideas and better processes. We expect employees to be actively engaged in every aspect of their projects, and we encourage our people to collaborate, learn and grow here.
We’re looking for a project manager with between 2-4 years of agency experience with familiarity managing an array of project types – and ideally the candidate has experience managing web or relevant digital projects. We expect candidates to have experience collaborating with teams, scheduling reviews, taking notes, tracking revisions and reporting on progress. The ability to work with many different personalities while maintaining positive relationships is key.
An ideal candidate should have hands-on experience with managing successful creative projects, such as content pieces, videos, branding, digital ads, etc. Ideal candidates will have experience with web content management systems (such as WordPress) in terms of assembling pages, uploading content and media, and training clients to manage updates directly after launch.
