This role requires a high level of organization, attention to detail, sociability, and resourcefulness. You don't need coding skills but a basic understanding of how a Content Management System (CMS) works will help.

- Identify trends / common problems and come up with solutions
- Identify and resolve communication gaps

Skills:
- Ability to adapt quickly to changing priorities in a fast-paced environment
- Ability to take full ownership of assigned responsibilities, and appropriately prioritize
- Keen attention to detail and accuracy
- Excellent and effective communication skills, both written and verbal
- Ability to handle multiple priorities, projects, and people at once, many with converging deadlines
- Inventive when solving problems and resourceful in finding answers when information is not readily available

Requirements and Relevant Experience:
- 3+ years of project management experience working with web developers
- Internet savvy
- Adept at forecasting project timelines and resources
- Familiarity with project management software
- Knowledge of waterfall and agile project management methodologies
- Basic CMS experience

Who Would Thrive:

- Someone with strong analytical, technical, troubleshooting and problem solving skills with the ability to get to the source of problems and think critically regarding possible solutions
- Team player
- Someone willing to roll up their sleeves, dig in and do whatever it takes to get the job done
- A person that is dedicated to learning and always looking for new ways to improve

Benefits:
We offer a unique and creative atmosphere, a casual work environment, and a competitive salary with bonus.
