Job opening: Digital Project Manager

Join a team of creatives working hard for worthy causes. We need your problem-solving skills, clear communication, and ability to see the forest and the trees. Ideally, you enjoy creating an environment in which all team members thrive and guiding clients through the process to deliver thoughtful and efficient results.

Digital Project Managers at openbox9 are

  • Empathetic to the experience of nonprofit clients. You set clear expectations and effectively explain how things work, bringing calm to stressful moments, and grounding decisions in real-life implications.
  • Proactive to see and meet needs. You are a trust-worthy guide, forging a trail for our team and clients, creating opportunities for the strengths of others to shine (and making sure everyone has snacks). You know how to foster a creative environment of focus and fun. You are a critical thinker who has vision to anticipate what happens next and set everyone up for success (which sometimes means taking out the trash).
  • Consistent in communication. You bring clarity to ambiguity. You speak, and type, clearly with a positive attitude and desire for connection. You have the right words for the right moment and are not shy to offer encouragement.
  • Collaborative in sustainable problem-solving. You can transition between various roles and responsibilities, bringing the right people together at the right time to make things happen. You can discern when to pass the ball and when to carry it to the hoop.
  • Organized in your systems. You can plan and execute a process while adapting to ever-changing circumstances. You have experience managing multiple projects simultaneously and can cater to the particular needs of each without losing sight of the whole enchilada. You also know when a system is not working and can creatively course-correct.
  • Experienced in the process of website design and development. You have collaborated with a creative team to bring a website strategy to life. You understand the value of user experience and the necessity of accessibility. You are used to an iterative refinement process and can test solutions against goals and expectations.
