Sr. Digital Project Manager

StudioLabs is a full-service creative technology and digital production shop that operates without limits. No idea is too small to love, and no project is too big to be handled with detail-oriented care. For over 18 years, StudioLabs has served direct clients and agencies, as well as funded startups and software shops. We understand the digital landscape; navigate it; and collaboratively release thoughtful, stellar work into the real world.
While they represent only the tip of the iceberg, StudioLabs’ clients include direct relationships like Estee Lauder, Central Park conservancy, and ESPN, as well as agencies like Momentum Worldwide and McCann, and SaaS companies like Gladly and Zype.
YOU also 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. You don’t write code, but you’ve been project managing web and mobile development projects for long enough to know how these things get built at a high level. You’re inquisitive about technology and like to learn from other team members. You are a master of disguise and a juggler of chainsaws, and you have the costumes and scars to prove it.
THE ROLE seeks a middle ground between fluid, process-driven digital project management / product management, and the intricacies of very human-focused client management. You must have at least 6 years of project management experience, or have a blend of project management and web development experience, to qualify for this position.
Working in small teams, you may have to wear different hats – speak technically to non-technical people, or speak non-technically to very technical people… Gather requirements and turn those into functional specs; work side-by-side with developers and engineers to produce high-quality, smart, engaging web-based products; run QA on your projects ensuring the best possible product at each release… But you’re a master of disguise, and your trunk of hats is stocked. So no problem.
REQUIREMENTS
  • 6+ years experience project managing and delivering medium to large scale websites, web-based software, and/or mobile applications / products including:
    • Requirements intake, functional requirements / specifications drafting
    • End-to-end production/leadership of web, mobile, and other web-based application projects. 
    • Delivering projects, from start to finish, on time and on budget
    • Creation of statements of work, project timelines, project reconciliations, scope addendum, and other project management documentation
    • Client management for both direct clients and agency clients, including handling of potential new business within the accounts you currently manage
    • Aiding development team(s) in scoping of incoming work
    • Maintenance of Kanban boards, backlog grooming, detailed writing of development tickets/tasks
  • Experience with enterprise-class task management software (e.g. JIRA, Trello)
  • Rockstar written/verbal communication presentation skills
  • The desire and drive to be awesome every day - An inquisitive mind, and a confident voice
