Advertising Project Manager

Location: El Segundo  //  Job Id: 5BD25243A4

We’re looking for our next Project Manager to help coordinate and deliver work to our clients, who are primarily in the video game industry. Our Project Managers are well-rounded self-starters with ad agency experience and very strong communication skills. You’re detail-oriented, proactive, and exceptionally organized, with proven ability to keep pace with multiple projects in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment

This position is hybrid – we primarily work remotely, and we gather one or more times per week at our office in El Segundo. We are open to remote working for exceptional candidates.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

  • Be the project management point of contact to both our team and our clients – you have the answers to who is doing what and when at all times
  • Collaborate with our internal team to develop and maintain project documents, including timelines, internal processes, and deliverables for each client’s program
  • Keep our project management platform (ClickUp) updated, and regularly communicate updates to team to make sure everyone is up on the latest
  • Help coordinate with vendors and freelancers as needed on specified projects, including gathering required documents for payment/invoicing
  • Organize assets and rout them to the required parties
  • Assist with maintaining and upkeeping internal job list, billing to-dos, and purchase/work orders
  • Participate in resourcing and workload balancing across the team
  • Stay a step ahead of potential problems – hours overages, budget overages, scope creep, etc. – by identifying them early, escalating them as needed, and clearly communicating with all parties to address them before they become actual problems

WHAT YOU’LL KNOW

  • How to build scopes, plan projects, and keep team members on track
  • How to effectively leverage project management software in an ad agency setting
  • How to write clearly, concisely, and persuasively
  • How to balance collegiality and effectiveness in a fast-paced, rapidly-changing environment, negotiating to achieve win-win outcomes

WHAT YOU'VE DONE

  • 4+ years of client-facing project management experience in an ad agency environment
  • Demonstrated ability to run a project management platform on behalf of a team
  • Ability to write scope documents by working with appropriate team leads and asking detailed questions of clients to gain clarity around deliverables and needs
  • Demonstrated ability to continually evaluate and help prioritize project deliverables, quickly and efficiently, based on evolving client and internal needs
  • Familiarity with video game and/or entertainment marketing
  • Experience managing the types of projects that are typically handled at an entertainment marketing agency, including but not limited to pitches, branding and visual ID development, video production, web banner production, website development, etc.
