  • Create mockups of concept models for consumer products

  • Maintain and demonstrate current knowledge of latest graphic design techniques.
  • Make awesome work based on vague descriptions and stick figure sketches.

Project Manager – Part Time

The Part Time Project Manager should have a passion for bringing amazing projects to life. Critical skills are understanding what design thinking is and the ability to be a partner with our design leads in communicating the design intent to client and product development teams.

You’ve got Product or Project Management experience and know how to get the best out of your tools. You aren’t happy just turning the crank on known problems with known processes. You admit when you don’t have the answer, and you have a point of view on the best path to find it. More, you can communicate this clearly to your teams and clients. You’re a natural collaborator who can work closely when needed with an Account Manager/Creative Leads.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:
  • Daily consulting with your team-leads, to develop a clear plan of action on your programs
  • Weekly clearly conveying the process and work plan to clients and your teams
  • Ensuring all deliverables are clearly specified, scoped and agreed between client and team
  • Keeping the team current with critical information, and filtering information effectively
  • Accurately forecasting the resources needed to execute client work; keeping studio resourcing and time-tracking systems up-to-date in Asana and Harvest Apps
  • Communicating utilization rate clearly to clients and team; re-forecasting program time/cost as necessary to management
REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS:
  • Program or Project Management experience in a design/agency/creative environment
  • Excellent negotiation and interpersonal communication skills
  • Strong understanding of the design process specifically, in the area of industrial design and or experience design
  • Knowledge of manufacturing and or product development a huge plus
  • Strong critical thinking and verbal abilities
  • Experience in formal project management methodologies, including various forms of documentation but with flexibility
  • Experience managing both digital and physical projects
  • Excellent writing skills and ability to produce enough project documentation, business requirements documentation and functional specifications to drive successful development
  • Must have experience in a range of project management situations (i.e., multiple industries and corporate structures, projects of varying duration and complexity)
  • Requires Bachelor’s Degree
  • Available for communication at all hours
  • Domestic and international travel may be required
  • Oversees and mentor interns
