Position Overview:

We're looking for a Paid Media Project Manager who is able to help us grow to the next level. We are at a phase of growth where we need someone who can help bring experience of project management from advertising or other industries to help us build.

We’re building a smarter mousetrap that is revolutionizing the way we do work. Other companies have teams of people, all doing the same job and are slow and inefficient.

We’ve invested a lot of time and energy into borrowing the principles of SCRUM and Waterfall methods to build a framework that works for fast-paced work that requires expertise and fast turnarounds. And it’s working!

We’re able to manage, with only 10 people, enough work that takes the rest of the industry 35 people to do. Now we need an expert in project management and client service to help us grow more.

Our work is different from what most project managers are used to. Instead of one long project, we do many micro deliverables. One client could have 50 hours of 30-min to 1-hour deliverables in a single month and they usually want 1-day turnarounds. We need someone to help us make sure that we can deliver on this without making the people doing the work be overwhelmed. With your help in keeping things organized, that won’t happen.

      • Work with clients to gather the materials needed to advance the requests.

      • Balance priorities with team resources while also supporting team health.
