/Project Management Lead
Walker Sands is looking for a detail-oriented project manager to join our web team.
Daily work will include managing the progress of web projects, such as landing pages, microsites and websites through production. This will involve checking in with team members (writers, designers, SEO analysts and developers) and ensuring that we’re progressing according to the approved timeline. This will also include reporting updates at weekly status meetings, taking notes at review meetings, ensuring revisions are implemented, uploading content to content management systems and testing deliverables prior to launch.
The digital 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 digital project manager with between 2-4 years of agency experience managing web or relevant digital projects. We require a familiarity with digital deliverables and production processes, and we expect candidates to have experience collaborating with teams, scheduling reviews, taking notes, tracking revisions and reporting on progress.
You should have hands-on experience with web content management systems (such as WordPress) in terms of assembling pages, uploading content and media, adding metatags, creating forms and training clients to manage updates directly after launch.
We also expect some familiarity with the quality assurance process in terms of testing pages on different devices and browsers, checking links, checking functionality and managing the bug tracking list to ensure all issues are resolved prior to launch.
