What you will do
Own resourcing requirements for a project
You align cross-functional team members on the project’s expectations. You brief your internal project members on timelines and deliverables according to the project brief. This entails cohesively collaborating with project members in different departments on their contributions, such as working closely with the Strategy, Design, Development and Media & Analytics teams in developing implementation plans and tracking workflow analytics as well as with the Account Management team on SOWs and understanding the feasibility of project requirements from a financial perspective. You determine the resource requirements, monitor resourcing plans and effectively communicate resourcing needs to stakeholders. You provide highly proficient end-to-end execution of the project/campaign strategy and objectives.
Champion day-to-day management of tasks and inbound requests
You prioritize keeping project schedules on track and that all tasks are completed with excellence to meet project milestones. You lead check-in meetings and know what each project member is actively working on and what resources they require to be successful. Overall, you ensure planned activities are being executed successfully. In addition, you facilitate their success by anticipating potential upcoming challenges and proposing solutions to remove barriers. As part of your day-to-day project management, you manage status reports and ensure the completion of timesheets by internal project members. You maintain overall project hygiene by upholding clean and orderly documentation. You are the glue between multiple moving components.
Build and uphold strong client relationships
You will be the main point of contact for clients throughout the entirety of the project’s life cycle. This means regularly communicating project health to clients while building and maintaining trust by providing reassurance that a project is going as planned. As part of this, you will respond to client inquiries, write status reports and lead review meetings. During client conversations, you apply an analytical mindset to recognizing risks that may occur during a project by understanding their asks and identifying what impacts and implications those have.

You’ve successfully managed web, digital marketing, and campaign projects with budgets of up to $300K, media spends of $10K a month. You have enough agency and/or consulting experience to allow you to be comfortable working in a fast-paced nature. This means you can handle a high volume of complex projects simultaneously.
You know a marketing campaign inside out
You know what a media buy and strategy looks like and how a production schedule and timeline can be set up optimally. You’ve previously worked with studio teams, producers, creatives, copywriters, programmatic and others in the execution of media campaigns.
You’re a holistic thinker
Given the number and complexity of projects you’ve managed, you have the ability to identify risks by looking at the bigger picture. This means you’ll have no problem context-switching between different projects across different clients. You look at a request and understand what is being asked. You foresee the impact of each action and anticipate any associated risks.
You’re resilient and calm under pressure
As the nucleus of a project, you’ll set the tone for how members feel about their contributions. You motivate and instill confidence into campaign stakeholders while keeping the tone of a project calm. Especially in the case of unforeseen obstacles. This can be tough to do within a remote capacity but for you, it’s no problem.
