Award-winning, fast-paced San Francisco digital agency is looking for an equally fast, thorough, talented project manager. If you excel in project management, multi-tasking and creative cat-herding we have the perfect opportunity for you.

You’ll work on our digital retail team, on accounts like Levi’s, Dockers, and Fitbit. You’ll liaise directly with our clients and fast-track the production of a wide range of digital pieces – from emails to social media posts, and web banners to micro-sites. You’ll thrive on autonomy and understand that the devil is in the details.


About The Role

You’ll work for world-famous brands, at the vanguard of e-commerce and digital marketing – on a scale that is sometimes hard to believe. You’ll do all of this with a smile, or at least without wanting to strangle anyone. Why? Because excellence is what defines you. And an environment like this gives you the freedom to excel. The details of the role include:

  • Sole responsibility for managing our client’s expectations on an hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly basis
  • Reporting to your Account Director, updating our internal status (within Basecamp), and logging your time in our project management software
  • Meeting with the client on a weekly basis, providing status updates, design insights, and taking new briefs
  • Learning how to build and manage content in new CMS platforms (such as Syndigo and Amazon Vendor Central)
  • Taking appropriate steps to improve your blossoming design management skills – learning from our team of talented designers and looking outside the agency for ways to improve
  • Becoming an expert on the client’s brand and products

The Ideal Candidate Has

  • Proven interest in the digital retail world
  • Positive attitude with excellent customer service skills
  • Intrinisic motivation and a growth mindset
  • 2 years agency account experience, or similar client-side position
  • Knowledge of creative and production processes
  • Proven success in managing and coordinating multiple projects, diverse personalities, and tight deadlines
  • Dynamic project management and collaboration skills
  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Knowledge of the Google Suite of applications
  • Experience working in Basecamp (desired but not essential)
