project manager

to the creative, organised and energetic individuals

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 and 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.


What we expect of everyone

  • Get involved with each others projects and learn from each other.
  • Create exciting new websites, bringing your ideas and experience to the table.
  • Work intelligently - for developers it means using industry standard libraries, for designers, it means using atomic design in Sketch and for project managers it means working efficiently using our extensive management tools. 
  • Have time to play around and improve your skills - you’ll be given training materials and time to expand your skill set.
  • Balance work with life - we foremost care about happiness and we recognise this means balancing an engaging job with a life outside of that job.
