Strategize, organize, and collaborate with our team. We’re looking for a confident communicator familiar with leading and launching high quality websites for great organizations. This is a flexible role within our multidisciplinary project team. Producers are hybrid project/account managers who also build and refine overall processes. People who succeed in this role are reliable proactive doers with an attuned attention to detail.
- Shape the work. Strategize about how to accomplish our clients’ goals and work with teams to make it happen. Balance the limitations and opportunities to reflect the very best of our clients online.
- Be the heartbeat of our projects. Ensure that everyone is at their best and knows what they need to do to keep the project humming. Think through problems, prioritize work, anticipate risks, and clarify details. You’ll shape an environment where smart people can do amazing work and maximize productivity.
- Provide an amazing client experience. We believe every member of the team is responsible for communicating openly and kindly with clients. You’ll lead this effort: encouraging direct conversations between experts, clarifying details, and making tough decisions feel easy.
- Watch for risks and opportunities. You’ll keep a steady eye on the long-term schedule, the big strategic ideas, and what might be coming down the road – but you’ll also be zooming into the tiny details that affect the day-to-day of making great websites.
- Organize all the things. Meetings, tasks, agendas, schedules, notes, and tools can easily get scattered or outdated. You’ll organize feedback and refine processes to make our work clear and achievable.
- Content integration and documentation. You’ll oversee and execute on content collection and content population within WordPress. Along the way you’ll document our custom built solution for each client.
