We aren’t easily impressed around here at The Hired Guns, that’s for sure. But when it comes to this UX-centered design agency — with their incredible scope and their stellar handling of all things interactive — we have to admit we’re pretty much blown away. They’ve asked us to find them a seasoned and all-knowing Project Manager, and we know it’ll take a top-notch Gun to make the cut.
As project manager, you’ll be monitoring the day-to-day activities of discipline leads and project teams, staying actively involved with the work and ensuring that things are moving along as planned. Expect to keep a grip on several projects at any given time, staying on top of schedules, budgets, assets, and overall project organization to ensure requirements and deliverables dates are clearly communicated, understood and executed upon.
There will be plenty of client interaction in this role, meaning you will also identify needs that the client may not recognize and manage their expectations accordingly. The agency will rely on you to consistently deliver the highest possible quality of service and solutions, soliciting and acting on client feedback, communicating and documenting the project’s status and strategic recommendations to your clients, escalating and resolving issues quickly and skillfully.

Specifically, you’ve worked on the development of substantial websites and have a firm grasp of associated web development technologies and third-party applications and platforms. Time spent in an agency environment, working on both project management and online best practices, is a critical requirement for this role.

If you’ve got any mobile or social media/community experience in your bag of tricks, we are prepared to be amazed. The same goes for e-commerce or big media site experience.
