Digital Project Manager (aka Client Happiness Manager)
At Interactive Strategies, we know that Project Managers do more than just keep website projects moving on time and on budget; they are key to building happy client relationships and ensuring that internal teams have what they need to be successful. Therefore, we're looking for detail-oriented and motivated self-starter who will bring not only strong PM skills, but a positive energy and new ideas.
We are looking for individuals who are skilled in the full spectrum of digital project management and will:
- Strive to represent our brand promise: details matter.
- Develop long-term client relationships by providing personal client service and communication. Clients should always feel informed and know that we have their best interest at heart.
- Create project plans, schedules, budget updates and other deliverables that ensure website development projects are staying on time and on budget.
- Create appropriate project documentation such as user flows, detailed requirements and JIRA tickets to help our internal teams understand what is expected of them, so that they deliver quality work in an efficient manner.
- Collaborate with our Management Team to continually refine and enhance the company’s overall website design and development process.
- Collaborate with the Strategy Team to integrate new and innovative solutions that respond to internal and client needs.
- Evaluate new business leads, engage in lead generation and participate in proposal creation.
- Represent the company to the larger web and marketing communities by engaging in conferences and networking opportunities.
- Seek professional development and stay attuned to emerging web and marketing techniques.

- Strategic. You understand communication is at the heart of creating a positive client experience and can maneuver through challenging situations with ease.
- Creative. You bring passion to your work and find creative ways to problem-solve with clients.

- Friendly. You’re a breath of fresh air. You work well with the team. You contribute ideas in a positive manner. You’re also a great listener.

- Experience writing functional and technical requirements.
- Excellent written and oral communication skills.
- Experience with industry tools such as MS Project, Omniplan, Excel, and JIRA that are used to create schedules, budgets, status reports and more.
We have a simple motto when it comes to company culture, "Everyone deserves to come to work and be happy." This means a few things: (1) we care as much about quality as we do about budgets, (2) we find the strengths in each employee and nurture them, (3) we encourage a culture that values innovation and creative freedom, and (4) we want you to have fun while you’re at the office . We may be an agency, but we understand that you have a life outside of work.
We allow our employees creative freedom. We treat them with respect. We value their opinions. In that spirit, we offer the following benefits:
