The Garrigan Lyman Group Digital Marketing Media Project Manager in Seattle, Washington
The Garrigan Lyman Group (GLG) is looking for a digital marketing media project manager, a well-organized, big-picture taskmaster with a love of technology. You’ll be interfacing with clients, partners, and team members daily, and you’ll deliver impactful work within scope, on schedule, and within budget. You’ll be joining a team of very accomplished digital marketing project managers, so this is a chance to learn from the very best. Project management roles require flexibility with hours and travel to meet client needs. Digital agency experience preferred.
Here’s what success looks like in the role:
You’ll direct work from a scope of work document, making sure our complex projects get done within schedule, scope, and budget constraints. To accomplish this, you’re collaborating with clients and partners to align our expectations with theirs, and you escalate scope issues and change order requests to a senior project manager or account manager. You balance assertiveness and patience.
You’ll lead a team and manage a team backlog, sourcing input from a variety of client projects and balancing the delivery requirements of each with the capacity of the team. When scheduling conflicts arise, you’ll work with all stakeholders to determine the best solution and set team priorities accordingly.
You have a proven track record in a client-service environment, including exposure to clients and ability to lead project teams. When things get chaotic, you are the calm within the storm, and you maintain patience under pressure.
Working with our experts in strategy, user experience, design, and technology, you’ll work to create team alignment on how to effectively balance scope, schedule, and budget. You maintain patience under pressure, demonstrate your talents in juggling competing priorities and good judgment when choosing to escalate.
You have strong organizational skills that keep you and your project team on track. You proactively request, allocate, and manage resource and stakeholder time to achieve project goals.
You’re seen and trusted as a leader by our clients and partners. How this looks daily is that you’re leading meetings and listening for action items and assignments. You follow up with meeting notes and own all tasks that arise. You identify the need for new or improved processes to meet clients’ needs. You don’t need to be told what the next steps are; you initiate movement and loop in stakeholders.
You’ll support business development efforts in a few different ways. Often, we engage a project manager to manage the pitch process and spec creative work. Just as importantly, though, as you communicate and work with clients, your ears should burn when you hear opportunities for growing our business with them. These opportunities should be escalated to the account manager to be pursued.
Five (5) or more years of project management experience or the equivalent
Ability to manage in both agile and waterfall project management methodologies
Proven ability to quickly learn and support technology tools and platforms in service of the needs of clients, partners, and GLG
Our project management team members come from diverse backgrounds with proven success managing interactive projects. You’ll set yourself apart by highlighting your experience from working with other creative and/or media agencies.
