Thu, 01 Dec 2016 06:08:57 CST(Anywhere) Modern Tribe is looking for a talented and experienced freelance digital project manager based somewhere in North America. We’re a WordPress agency so hopefully you have run some projects with the platform. If you are drawn to order like a moth to a flame, then drop us a line. If you like maintaining lists and seeing team members make progress because you set them up to succeed, then you are perfect for this gig. If you are skilled in agile, waterfall and whatever-suits-the-project techniques, then we should talk.To be transparent, this is NOT a Digital Producer role. We have Strategists that you will be working with as well as UX team members. This gig is about organization and management more than it is about creative input. Who We AreModern Tribe is a rapidly growing software & design company. We develop custom solutions for some of the world’s largest companies, government institutions and smaller growing organizations. We pride ourselves on our ability to bridge people and technology and to bring the passion and dedication of an entrepreneur to every project.

Having a positive disposition allows us to achieve great things and to support each other.Helpful: Always looking for ways that you can help others.Curious: It is essential that you have a passion for learning. Technology changes daily, and life has a way of constantly raising the bar.Accountable: Our clients expect us to get the right thing done on budget and on time. Communicating expectations and meeting them is the cornerstone of success.A Freelancer: This means that if you live within the USA, you will also maintain your own personal client list and that Modern Tribe will only comprise a proportion of your total income. Regardless of where you live, you need to be already freelancing.For this role specifically, you should feel comfortable wrangling a chaotic digital media project into an organized one. You should ask lots of questions and feel a need to. We are hoping you will not just project manage, but understand the project, the business goals and engage in the technology enough to be able to anticipate scope, budget and timeline challenges.ResponsibilitiesYour primary responsibility is to shepherd the project to success. We pride ourselves on our projects arriving on time, on scope, on budget with a happy team and customer. You will create confidence through organization and oversee communication. To do this, you will need to:Manage scope, timeline and budget executionManage expectations for everyone on a project including the team, the account managers, and the customerRun scrums and other status meetingsReview team hoursWrite SOWsReview budgetSet up and maintain tickets in the management systemManage collection of assets and information from the customerPerform meeting prep, prepare agendas, and handle all follow upProduce weekly and monthly summary reportsPersonal CompetenciesStrong communication and/or experience working as part of a remote teamSelf-motivated, detail-oriented, strong organizational skills, with a methodical approach to all tasksAbility to prioritize workloads and meet deadlinesAbility to work independently with minimal oversightFluent English speakerRequired Knowledge & ExperienceAt least 5 years of experience working as a PM, ideally on a distributed web design / dev teamExperience with agile and waterfall management stylesExperience producing large CMS powered websitesA whiz when it comes to online collaboration tools.
