About the Job

You’re just the person we’re looking for. You like working multiple projects because it always teaches you something new. When someone tells you a problem is unsolvable, you smile and roll up your sleeves. You hit the ground running, pivot as needed, and never miss a beat or a deadline.

  • Create and maintain project schedules for all assets from creative brief through final delivery, managing to deadline and budget
  • Work with the team to meet milestone dates while proactively communicating and addressing any challenges that put a project at risk
  • Work with project leaders to identify and interface with writing and design resources
  • Work seamlessly with cross-functional teams across multiple industries and specialties, seniority levels and geographies

  • Extremely strong organizational and communication skills and attention to detail
