Creative Project Manager

Here at Traction we now have a rare opportunity for a talented Creative Project Manager to come join our growing, innovative team!

Working with some of the world’s biggest brands you will play an integral role as you manage multiple accounts, including helping to pitch new business and partner with our Account Services team to deliver award-winning, highly creative work.

You’ll be strategically minded and thrive when surrounded by like-minded people as you think outside the box, bring fresh ideas to the table and achieve best practices within Project Management.

Whilst you don’t have to come from a technically focused background you will have a sound understanding of web and digital and be able to communicate fluently between technical and non-technical people as you work closely with clients and our internal design and technical teams to scope, plan and build best-in-class customer-facing content and digital experiences.

What you’ll (mostly) do:

  • Scope, plan, resource and track projects ranging from managing web properties, integrated advertising campaigns, and videos, to daily maintenance requests.
  • Strive to ensure that projects are delivered on time, on budget, and that all deliverables meet or exceed client expectations.  
  • Create SOW’s, project briefs, project schedules, status documentation and report financials.
  • Serve as the point person for all stakeholders.
  • Solve problems creatively and be able to compromise without negatively impacting the work.

What you’ll (mostly) bring:

  • Strong experience managing projects and/or resources at an advertising agency, web development studio or from the client-side.
  • Solid understanding of interactive processes, timelines, estimates and budgets.
  • Experience managing multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Solid understanding of marketing strategy and digital branding.
  • Experience in project recruiting and resource management.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Excellent organization, time management and negotiation skills.
  • A strong understanding of Excel
  • Experience using Workamajig, or a similar agency project management tool, is preferred.
  • Experience with Content Management Systems (CMS) a bonus.

Our humblebrag: 
Join an award-winning, digitally-focused, full-service, independent agency staffed by a bunch of folks who love what they do and do what they love. Still on the rise after 17 years of success, you’ll enjoy a satisfying suite of benefits, as well as the chance to work on the world's most well-know brand. 

Will you accept our mission? 
Traction is dedicated to creating meaningful advertising, branding, and experiences for our clients and their consumers. In order to accomplish this, we have fostered a culture rooted in autonomy, empowerment, collaboration, and—occasionally—mischief. We believe that great work is spontaneous, and the best ideas come from a diverse team of creatively-minded individuals. Our goal is to be an agency where the journey getting there is as great as the work itself, and we’re looking for the right people to help us do it.
