Now Hiring: Project Manager

For years, we've had the essential role of Project Manager as part of our team, which helps us to manage internal and external communications & calendars and "air traffic control" the priorities of our creative team. The good news is that our client mix in recent years has created an abundance of additional strategic work, so we're breaking those responsibilities out into their own position. This opens a new spot for us to welcome a new Project Manager to our team!


We've built a strong culture during COVID times that allows for autonomy and flexibility with where people work. As long as people are available and working during regular workweek hours, they can be wherever best suits them. We do a Zoom each morning to catch up and coordinate.
