Help Wanted: Project Manager

April 27, 2018

Are you a technically-inclined project manager? Do you explore the latest features in Basecamp, Asana, Smartsheet, and/or Jira for fun; or organize your personal life in spreadsheets? Then have we got a job for you!

We’re seeking an awesome person to join our distributed, fourteen-member team as a Project Manager.

The core responsibility for this position will be to manage web design and development projects to  ensure our clients get the best possible service on time and within budget. This position will be responsible for managing multiple projects at once and leading day-to-day communications with clients, so we’re looking for an organized, detail-oriented, self-starting, multi-tasking person. You may also be on the frontlines of our support operation, helping our maintenance and retainer clients continue their smooth sailing after initial launch, so the ability to keep your cool when others are freaking out is key.

Since we are a WordPress-focused web agency, our ideal candidate will have at least some working knowledge of how the Internet works and of WordPress administration. Some knowledge of HTML, CSS, web design and UX standards would also be helpful, though actual developer skills are not expected: you won’t be required to write code.

Responsibilities

  • Maintain amazing relationships with inspiring nonprofit clients, many of them nontechnical
  • Oversee multiple web projects to ensure they are completed to spec and delivered on time
  • Work with clients, designers and developers to thoroughly document and communicate functional specs and ensure work is completed
  • Schedule and lead meetings with clients and Cornershop team members
  • Monitor incoming support requests and triage, resolving or assigning to other team members as necessary

Skills/Knowledge

  • Insanely detail oriented (enough that your friends may secretly hate you for it)
  • Incredibly organized (they might mock you for this too)
  • Willingness to work in a fast-paced environment
  • Experienced and enthusiastic juggler (literally would be cool, but we’re speaking metaphorically here)
  • Ability to keep your cool when others are freaking out
  • Proven track record of successful project management
  • Passionate about progressive causes
  • Knowledge of best practices in web design and development
  • Familiarity with WordPress
  • Familiarity with common nonprofit solutions, such as Luminate Online, Salsa Labs, Engaging Networks, Salesforce, and/or other similar platforms
  • Ability to remain cheerful, calm, and organized even though the *$%@ conference line isn’t working for everyone AGAIN

Awesome but Totally Not Required

  • Basic knowledge of HTML5, Sass, JS, and/or PHP
  • Some web design skills and Photoshop/Sketch experience
  • Previous experience working successfully from home as part of a remote team
  • Previous experience working for a creative agency
