The Hired Guns are seeking a self-motivated, hands-on, articulate Program Manager to juggle high-profile projects, including communicating with celebrities and C-level executives, for an award-winning digital agency.

The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the company and why they need to hire you!
This established, female-led digital video agency works in the entertainment, sports, and media spaces. As their client roster grows, they’re looking for a passionate and highly organized Program Manager who is well-versed in the media landscape (particularly the world of video) to manage high-profile client projects (your first project would be working with the CEO of a major sports team). This role is heavy on client-facing, and you will have to communicate – with grace and discretion – to both internal and external stakeholders, providing strategic inputs, business narratives, and other key “big-picture” thought-leadership initiatives. You’ll also formulate and present budgets and strategic plans to the executive team. In short, you’ll be an autonomous strategist who owns day-to-day strategic planning, business operations, and creative programming. If you’re a detail-oriented doer who is excited to join a scaling, cutting-edge agency and work with top-tier clients, then this is definitely the gig for you!
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
Hands down, you’re super-passionate about video news, programming, influencers, leaders, and the latest video trends. Ideally, you have a minimum of 5 years of account management and/or project management experience in video, media, and social. Client-facing experience is a must, as you will be engaging with a lot of heavy-hitting external stakeholders. That means that you must be extraordinarily trustworthy and use the utmost discretion when handling high-profile client portfolios. It also means you can keep it cool, and you’re adept at subtle communication. It’s great if you have B2B as well as B2C experience. Fluency in the media landscape, from TV to publishing to digital video initiatives, is a non-negotiable. You’re a high-functioning multi-tasker with strong organizational skills. Expertise in all Microsoft Office products, Google Docs/Sheets/Slides, Slack, and other project management tools and client management systems is a must, along with willingness to learn and capacity to adapt to new tools quickly.
The Inside Skinny
Why you should quit your job right now and join this team!
Right out of the gate, you’ll be partnering with the CEO of a major sports team. You will be working directly with clients at all levels, from interns and admins, to C-levels and celebrities, with huge autonomy. Need we say more?
