Looking For A Digital Project Manager**
Tired of managing projects you don’t care about? We get it. Who really gets passionate about an insurance company’s or a car dealer’s or a financial Institution’s website? Wouldn’t you rather be part of something that feels more like you?
We’re a brand new digital entertainment company and we create killer entertainment experiences for audiences who want to be wowed. We produce original multiplatform content, kick-ass digital extensions of TV shows, and digital applications meant to amaze, dazzle and most of all entertain. We don’t do corporate sites, we’re not into company politics, and we’re definitely NOT an ad agency.
We’re looking for a Digital Project Manager who takes pride in making promises and keeping them, knows how communicate and manage expectations and always delivers best-in-class projects. We want you to love what you’re working on, and be invested in its success. We're hiring someone with the lights on, who can lead internal and external teams, knows their way around a budget and a schedule and can make sure that every project stays on the rails.
To us, you’re the glue that keeps a project together and moving forward, you keep morale high, and have your finger on the pulse of a project from start to finish. You’re someone who enjoys collaboration and will help us break new ground. In both your personal and professional lives you’re passionate about digital content, games, and mobile applications.
The job will involve managing multiple projects and internal teams, it will challenge you to dream big and then find ways to pull it off. This is a full-time contract position that could become permanent if you’re the right fit for the company.
If this is you, let us know you're out there. We'd love to talk. Please read carefully and apply in just the way the page describes.
If this isn’t you, but this sounds just like someone you know, *there's a $500 bounty if you refer the person we hire*. Have them mention your name and contact info in the application.
* Deadline: Noon, April 5, 2013 *
How Do I Apply?
This position is critical to our success. Every project we work on has multiple stakeholders, a lot of moving parts and we need to know that you’ve got what it takes. If the application process is too onerous for you, you’re not meant for this position. We’re looking for someone with an attitude that matches our own, with a very particular skill set, and a set of goals for what they want to achieve.
If you become part of our team, you will be given a great deal of independence and very little oversight. We expect you to dream big and then deliver on those dreams. On time and on budget is a given – we want someone who seeks to exceed what’s expected and blow people away.
After reviewing the questions below, put together your best effort in a four page PDF document and email it.
That's the only way to apply--please respect the boundary! Deadline for applications is Noon on April 5, 2013. One application per person, get it right the first time!
PLEASE INCLUDE THE POSITION YOU ARE APPLYING FOR IN YOUR EMAIL SUBJECT LINE.
