Project Manager

Alley Interactive is a team of experienced strategists, researchers, designers, developers, and project managers who create digital solutions for large-scale digital publishers including news organizations and non-profit institutions. We are seeking a Project Manager with experience using agile methodologies, preferably in an agency context, to join our Project Management Team in guiding clients and team members through production projects and beyond.

Qualified applicants should display excellent verbal and written communication skills, quick and creative problem-solving, resourcefulness, approachability, and superior attention-to-detail. You’re expected to keep track of everything happening on a project since no detail is too small — so be sure to include “Welcome to the world of tomorrow!” in your cover letter to be considered. The ability to effectively telecommute is a must. Additionally, the ability to identify when to raise a red flag and how, when, and why to raise concerns with the client and/or internal team is crucial.

This is a fun, but fast-paced and, at times, intense environment where the ability to multi-task and prioritize is essential. You will be expected to learn our project management style and work with the entire team to ensure that all of our projects adhere to it.

Responsibilities

  • Simultaneously manage production of several projects from start to finish.
  • Understand and manage client expectations throughout the life of the project.
  • Effectively and efficiently engage with large teams of clients and coworkers.  
  • Schedule, collaborate, plan, and run in-person, on-site meetings with large groups of client stakeholders.
  • Maintain transparency of progress throughout the lifetime of a project for both internal and external stakeholders.
  • Digest large amounts of information from meetings and translate/condense into “actionable items” for team members.  
  • Anticipate and maneuver roadblocks.

Qualifications

  • Service-oriented and outspoken, ability to proactively and aggressively manage expectations.
  • Ability to communicate professionally and effectively via tools such as Zoom, Slack, Google Apps, and JIRA.
  • Experience working in a team-oriented, collaborative, agency environment.
  • Must be able to rapidly adapt and respond to changes in environment and priorities.
  • Experience working with Agile Methodologies, particularly Scrum and Kanban, and the values and philosophies that make it a successful project management approach.
  • Possess familiarity with project management/issue tracking systems such as JIRA and time tracking systems such as Harvest.
  • Ability to travel to visit clients 4-5 times per year.
  • Bonus points if:
    • You are CSM Certified.
    • You can work in our NYC office. However, we will consider applicants from across the country and Canada.
