Looking for Seattle-based Jr-to-Mid Technical Project Manager
Looking for a project manager with agency experience in any capacity (as a dev, QA, admin, PM, anything). The needs of this role are pretty classic to PM and include but are not limited to the following:
- Client relationship management
- Risk management
- Calendar management
- Stakeholder interviews
- Project planning
- Resourcing strategy
- Managing kickoffs, both client facing and technical
- Requirements management, functional specifications
- Budget tracking
- Estimate wrangling
- Contributing to SOWs, change orders
- Sequencing of the critical path
- UAT and Quality strategy
- Client reporting
- Scope management
What we're really looking for is culture fit.
- Someone who knows when to leverage agile principles or waterfall methods or something else entirely.
- Someone who isn't going to blindly follow PMI without questioning the context.
- Someone who can meaningfully motivate a team.
- Someone willing to be the umbrella to protect the team while also keeping them informed.
- Someone who can post silly gifs to Slack while also holding the client accountable to deliver required project dependencies.
- Someone who will templatize their work while also crafting specific solutions for client needs.
- Someone who empowers their team to be self-mobilizing but is also aware that the team needs leadership.
- Someone who values coworker relationships but also seeks work-life balance.
- Someone who knows when the client is asking for a boiled ocean and has the temerity to gracefully inform them of such.
- Someone high integrity.
- Someone ready to ship.
We're a small digital agency in Seattle. We do a lot of web development and have clients big and small. We've been around for more than a decade. We don't have a ping-pong table or a beer tap in the kitchen and we don't want that either. We go home at a reasonable hour and work from home when we feel the call. Join us.
Please reach out with a resume and some information about yourself and what you are looking for. If you have a blog or post or twitter where you talk about these things, include that too.
