Project Manager for Design Projects

We’re looking for a project manager who wants to work with a team of award-winning designers, developers, researchers, and producers. We are using design methods to create high-quality services, products, brands and businesses both in private and public sector. Project manager makes sure that we as a team understand the task and execute our work in time and on budget.

As a producer, you will need to understand the design methods and also the business. You should feel comfortable guiding project strategy with the client and your team of developers and designers – a mix of strategic thinking, project leading, and account management. We need you to know where value comes from and how to create it.

How do we work, learn, and play?

We are in constant debate as to what is the best approach to a particular project. We strive to use the right tools for the job and regularly evaluate ways to work smarter. We are passionate about the quality and consistency of the products we deliver. The team is free to choose how they work to deliver the best results.

We are remote-friendly and flexible with where you spend your working hours. We have offices in Tallinn and Tartu with the mindset of being online-first (and written) in our communication so that our people can work from anywhere.

We have the necessary snacks, drinks, wellness benefits for gyms, other health services, and team retreats fitting for a 2020 Design Agency of the Year.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Communicating with clients and your team regularly and proactively
  • Working with the client and the team to ensure each effort is well defined, prioritized, in the budget, and high quality
  • Helping the sales team to move projects through the sales pipeline with defining project scope, plan, and budget for the prospect
  • Facilitate discussions between the client and the team
  • Prioritize and schedule work within your projects together with your team
