Description

BACKGROUND

  • Pixel Designs has never employed a Project Manager so you’ll be looked to for guidance and to set a mandate and expectation across the company. This is why 3–5 years of agency experience is mandatory.
  • Pixel Designs currently employs a part-time Project Coordinator, and you’ll be responsible for taking on their current workload (they will be transitioning internally to other responsibilities).
  • In the future, the plan is to hire additional project managers, which you’ll be responsible for and manage. You’ll also manage the most complex of our projects.

WHAT YOU’LL DO 

  • Work with staff members to maintain an overview of projects and staff workload
  • Works closely with clients, interpreting scope and timeline requests and translating them into deliverables for developers
  • Developing project plans for clients and staff
  • Delegating project tasks to teams best suited to complete them
  • Tracking project performance and analyzing deliverables against requirements
  • Ensuring that all budgetary objectives are met, making adjustments as needed
  • Write Statements of Work and project proposals to assist with lead generation
  • Coordinate between clients, staff, and leadership to ensure any delays or difficulties are brought to light as soon as possible
  • Advise company leadership on best practices, as well as areas of improvement and opportunity

KNOWLEDGE + EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS

  • Extensive familiarity with specific project management tools. We currently use a combination of Asana + AirTable + Everhour in the office, but can be convinced to use different applications
  • Advanced analytical and time management skills
  • Budgeting and financial knowledge, specifically in Excel and XERO (not required, but a bonus)
  • Management and leadership experience
  • BONUS: Any hands-on WordPress Experience will be looked upon extremely favourably
  • 3-5 years of experience as a Project Manager at a digital or technical agency
  • Post-secondary degree or diploma in computer science, communications, project management or related discipline

PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Have a good time and joke around, but also know when to buckle down.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills. We value communication as a core principle of our team.
  • Self-motivated to learn/work and able to work independently
  • Always producing high-quality work, following the standards that Pixel Designs has set for itself
  • Be able to manage multiple tasks while being deadline-oriented

JOB PERKS

  • Full-time salaried position.
  • Flex time — start anywhere between 6 am and 10 am.
  • Work in our brand new cozy office in the awesome 124st/Westmount neighbourhood in Edmonton OR out of our office in downtown Victoria, BC.
  • There is flexibility to work from home here and there

COMPENSATION
