what we're looking for

We are looking for a digital project manager to join our small, agile team in bringing exciting designs to life while supporting the fantastic work that our team has already produced.


On the average day

  • Ensure projects are running smoothly from first meeting with clients, articulating their needs in clear proposals to scheduling work and checking with our team, through to the end of projects and handover of a site. 
  • Take calls, respond to emails and manage relationships with clients.
  • Problem-solve with our designers & developers to find the best solutions. 
  • Even possibly update a bit of code on a website… it’s a small team and we hope you will learn the basics of code.


Skills & understandings, we expect from a project manager

  • Keen organisational skills and attention to detail.
  • You love technology and get excited about new developments in the digital world like we do. 
  • You proactively communicate internally and with clients, focusing on building good, long-term relationships. 
  • A focus on collaboration and ensuring all stakeholders are involved with key decisions.
  • Common sense prevails.
  • You learn quickly and adeptly transfer your existing soft skills in communication, collaboration and organisation to this role.

  • Create exciting new websites, bringing your ideas and experience to the table.
  • Work intelligently and efficiently using our suite of project management tools like Teamwork and Resource Guru.
  • Have time to play around and improve your skills - you’ll be given training materials and time to expand your skill set.
  • Go home on time - our office hours are 9-6 (flexi-time available) with an hour lunch.


Our values

  • Work-life balance – we work 9-6 (with an hour lunch) and we mean it. No pulling late nights. Enjoy work but have a personal life!
  • Giving our team autonomy to do their job - you have freedom to flex your creative muscles.
  • Using the right tools to build intuitive and easily manageable sites - we use Sketch, Shopify, Teamwork (for project management), Slack, and Teamflow (so we can be a happy virtual office crew when we're not together).
  • Treating our team and clients fairly and with respect - we're just trying to be nice people and build great relationships.
  • Giving them time to play to grow and
  • Feedback to support that.
