We're seeking a Project Manager to join our dynamic team. We just moved into a new office in the middle of Downtown Toronto. We work in an open and collaborative environment, we make a point to display our company culture very publicly (you can actually read it all on our website) and we live by it. We respect each other and help one another. We are a strong team. We select our employees very carefully, making sure that the match is right. Who we are is what makes us unique and this is why we have the opportunity to work on amazing projects with great clients.
Starting Date: ASAP
Salary: Based on skill and experience
Hours: 9AM - 5PM Monday through Friday
Let's get right into the fun stuff: As a Design Shopp team member, you will benefit from group insurance, including health and dental. You have the opportunity to work in a lively and open work environment with the constant support of a vibrant and passionate team. Located in the King West neighborhood, you will be just a few minutes walk away from Liberty Village, which during our Canadian summers are ideal for a lunchtime break. The caffeine addicts can enjoy free coffee on tap while enjoying the beautiful cityscape and view of the CN Tower from the office building full of other young and dynamic businesses. When you visit our Montreal office, you will have VIP access to our game room (video games, board games, Netflix, and more) and limitless cuddles from Charlie the Dog (aka Vice President of Happiness / aka Sandwich Thief).
Since this is a job posting, let’s get to it:
Do you love meeting new clients, identifying their needs and working with them to determine project requirements? Do you know how to really put your best foot forward – bringing your smile, confidence and unmatched professionalism to everything you do? Do you have experience in project management for clients dealing with digital content? If so, you have what it takes to succeed in this position!
How we work
Once a contract is signed, it’s assigned to a project manager who is in charge of communicating with the client and coordinating with the team, consisting of designers, developers and other Design Shopp collaborators as needed. You will attend all meetings during project development, making you a key player at the core of a very important process. Your smile is needed every step of the way – whether to demonstrate to a client that you’re ready to listen or to encourage your hard-working team!
As project manager, you will also be called on to document each project’s major stages, scope and objectives. Your past experience with web projects and digital marketing will prove invaluable since you will have to quickly adapt to new projects and know the development stages by heart to successfully answer any and all client questions.
You will also be asked to create project schedules in close collaboration with the team of programmers and developers, to guarantee that project objectives and priorities will be fulfilled. Ensuring the communication of these elements, both internally and with the client, will be essential.
… and even more communication
You will be expected to record each project’s updates and progress in order to communicate these developments to team members as well as clients.
As you can see, in this role, communication is key. You will work on multiple projects simultaneously while respecting agency-established procedures. We are seeking someone who isn’t afraid of taking initiative and making contributions to improve these procedures.—
That’s it in a nutshell—a pretty big nutshell. We need to hire as quickly as possible and we get many CV’s, so we want to hear from you as soon as possible! Make sure to include a personal note about yourself. If we select your application, you can expect a first phone interview where we will get to know you a bit better and discuss salary, as we will base it on your experience and skillset.
Talk to you soon!
