at Wunderman Thompson
New York, New York, United States

Who we are:

Wunderman Thompson is a creative, data and technology agency. We are built to inspire growth for our clients with breakthrough creativity that helps our clients succeed. We are in a unique position to deliver growth based on three fundamental principles: we see the world differently and reject conventional thinking; we have an unbounded definition of creativity that can rethink business, culture, and brand experiences; we act decisively and accountably, owning delivery end-to-end.

Who we're looking for:

Wunderman Thompson is seeking a Senior Project Manager to manage projects to an excellent level of risk by balancing scope, time, cost and quality, while maintaining a positive environment that promotes individual development and high-performance standards. You will be responsible for being a partner to the program manager and creative lead, while protecting the creative vision and delivering the work in production. Additionally, the Senior Project Manager ensures that the project/product deliverables map to the business objectives.

We are looking for a Senior Project Manager who has experience working in an Agile framework with multiple teams co-located. Our ideal candidate has the dual ability to maintain the broad vision required for executing a project, including strategic thinking & leadership from beginning to end, as well as the talent for overseeing all the small details that add up to fulfilling our commitment to client satisfaction.

This opportunity is a contract role in our New York office.

What you'll do:

  • Provide team leadership: work with the leads to ensure project success within budget, timeline and scope.
  • Manage project profitability: plan, track and approve project expenses, billing and invoices.
  • Oversee the creation of goals and strategy throughout project.
  • Communicate expectations to client and team members and manage the process through assessment and definition, creative & technical design, production and development, testing and launch.
  • Create and oversee project schedule. Ensure timely completion through all phases. Take lead on quality control issues. Write and present project plans/risks in collaboration with other team members.
  • Develop required documentation for all projects.

What you’ll need:

  • 5+ years of experience in advertising or marketing communications agencies with hands-on experience managing large-scale website builds. Client relationship management experience a plus.
  • Experience in eCommerce, retail, and consumer brand marketing experience are highly desired.
  • Proven track record in a client-services environment including exposure to clients and ability to lead project teams.
  • Strong organizational and planning skills. Must be detail oriented, have strong presentation and project management skills and excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Good understanding of emerging web standards, plus proven web experience and architecture knowledge.
  • Public speaking experience or writing for publications.
  • Knowledge of design software or programming languages.
  • ScrumMaster or Agile experience preferred.
