Project Manager

Project Managers at Modern Tribe are responsible for overseeing the lifecycle of multiple projects, from inception to launch and beyond. They create and maintain project plans, budget reports, and identify and work with the team to mitigate project risks and resolve project issues.

The Opportunity

Modern Tribe is looking for a talented and experienced digital project manager to work with our team. We’re a WordPress agency so running some projects with the platform or experience with WordPress is ideal.

If you are drawn to order like a moth to a flame, and you like maintaining lists and seeing team members make progress because you set them up to succeed, and you are skilled in agile, waterfall and whatever-suits-the-project techniques, then we should talk.

To be transparent, this is NOT a Digital Producer role. We have Product Owners that you will be working with as well as UX team members.
