Digital Project Manager

Posted: 11/20/2020

Location: Louisville, KY

Employment: Full Time

Description

A great Project Manager is comprised of equal parts Logic and Magic.

The Logic

Project managers work closely with creative, marketing, and tech teams to produce amazing, integrated products. Project Managers consistently and thoughtfully manage the details of project scope, schedule, and budget with uncanny attention to detail. They think critically, find solutions quickly with confidence, and don't expect someone else to show them the right way forward. 

The Project Manager provides insights on process improvements and/or resources and tools available to the agency and ensures that the standard workflow and process are followed and implemented. Like any member of the PMO, they own the information by knowing their projects inside and out.

You know when to roll up your sleeves to help get the job done and when to take a step back to assess the best path forward. You are a calm, consistent presence that focuses the team and clears away roadblocks and distractions. The PM must have a passion for knowing the ins and outs of their clients' business and a drive to deliver consistent and timely results in a fast-paced and environment.
