Project Management Intern

The Project Management Intern role lays the foundation for experience within a digital agency environment & culture where you learn to operate without limits. Your job is your job, but your success and the success of those around you is your passion, and you can not only spot opportunities to help others, you can act on those opportunities.

At StudioLabs, we love our Project Management Interns and it shows. As an intern on the production team, you’ll get hands-on experience working alongside a highly-skilled production and development team utilizing current web technologies on real client projects.

You don’t write code in your day to day as a Project Management Intern, but you may have for school projects or side learning. You’ve been naturally curious about web and mobile development builds for long enough to know how these things get built, but want to hone and take your project management/product management skills to the next level. You’re inquisitive about technology and like to learn from other team members. 

The day to day responsibilities of a Project Management Intern focuses on: 

  • Shadowing the production team during different phases of the project lifecycle (New Project Discovery & Definition, Development, Quality Assurance Testing, Maintenance/Support, etc.).
  • Participating in light wireframing and other technical documentation creation.
  • Writing development and feedback tickets, participating in vendor invoice review, creating project burn-downs, and other light project finance tasks.
  • Quality Assurance testing for website and native app updates, as well as UX deliverables (wireframes, site maps, designs).
  • Leading entry-level project tasks, such as maintenance requests or small product features
  • Organizing client and documentation within Atlassian Confluence and Google Drive, including adding and updating project decision logs.
  • Content population work, e.g. updating/adding page copy, press releases, blog entries
  • Implement SEO optimizations including meta descriptions, page titles, and redirects.
  • Gaining experience with common Content Management Systems, including WordPress, Drupal, and Shopify.
  • Minor Research Projects: Examples include researching SEO best practices for upcoming sites, or finding examples for ecommerce Add to Cart placement.
 

What we’re looking for in our next Project Management Intern:

  • A student enrolled in a Computer Science program, or equivalent development boot camp with a focus on project/product management. Those who have completed technical project/product management classes are given preference.
  • Strong communication skills: You understand the bigger picture intuitively. You know how to ask the right questions to develop peer to peer relationships and stakeholder relationships. Your written and verbal communication skills are balanced between listening to understand and using your voice with stakeholders at all levels. 
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to details: Check lists, timelines, and documentation gets you excited; you know how to balance multiple priorities and understand dependencies between tasks and team approaches.
