Hello, talented project managers! glassCanopy is hiring.
glassCanopy is an integrated digital marketing agency… blah blah blah. You know what — let’s skip that tired sentiment: we’re a busy, fun team with lots of new projects, and we need to grow. As such, we’re looking to scoop up a smart, tenacious pro (with both internal and client-facing experience) seeking a home where their contributions will be valued.
Our website is pretty old and about to undergo a massive facelift — so please stalk our blog instead to get a more accurate idea of how we work and think (and play).
We’re located smack dab in the middle of San Francisco (Market + Guerrero). There’s no corporate parking lot, no company cafeteria, and no at-desk masseuse. We think everything but the last is a good thing. Hopefully you will, too.
The Project Manager will work closely with glassCanopy’s executive producer to help manage various new-media and technology projects; execute key project activities; and drive the successful completion of major client deliverables.
Specifically, we are looking for someone with experience running web and mobile marketing-related projects.
Although this position reports to the company’s executive producer, he/she will also work closely with glassCanopy’s founding partner, creative leads, and development teams. Basically, hands in everything.
Receive creative briefs and develop detailed project plans and timelines using a web-based project management tool.
Manage and support individual project team members including creative, technical and content personnel (both gC employees and contractors) to ensure that projects are effectively delivered.
Lead the client communication process throughout the project lifecycle.
Use internal tools to plan and implement project tasks and deliverables.
Conduct regular project staff meetings and conference calls, as needed.
Use project management tools to rigorously track programs to ensure that solutions are being delivered on time, and on budget.
Assist in making resource recommendations and staffing creative campaigns.
Prepare necessary project documentation, including status updates, system requirements, resource plans, etc.
Organize, manage and disseminate all relevant client files and digital projects assets (both internally and externally).
Coordinate and sometimes assist in the QA review of key deliverables going to clients as required.
3-7 years experience managing cross-functional teams over the course various marketing campaigns.
Web & mobile related project experience
Solid understanding of project management methodology including the ability to identify and resolve issues, manage risk, develop work plans and run team meetings.
Familiarity with basic multimedia and web technologies including Photoshop, HTML, print, lead generation.
Experience communicating requirements and technical concepts between clients and production teams.
Strong written and verbal communication skills.
Bachelor’s Degree required.
Experience working within a leading integrated marketing or advertising agency or design firm.
