## Your Day-to-day{linebreak}{linebreak}This is a contract-to-hire remote project manager position. Individuals only, please :){linebreak}{linebreak}Fundamentally, your job is to make sure our people are working efficiently on the our clients' biggest opportunities, and that our clients have visibility into what we're working and are bought in to our timing and approach.{linebreak}{linebreak}## How We View the Role{linebreak}{linebreak}One of the most common complaints from clients about other agencies is that they are absolutely terrible at communicating. We're happy to report that we take communication as seriously as the implementation work itself, so the Project Manager role is absolutely critical to our success as a company. Communication is your primary responsibility. As such, much of your work will happen inside our communication tools—Slack, Jira, Zendesk, Email, and Hangouts.{linebreak}{linebreak}As the nexus of information in the company you'll ensure information gets to the right people at the right time. There are three distinct roles you'll work closely with: Account Executives, clients, and Individual Contributors.{linebreak}{linebreak}You'll collaborate closely with an Account Executive to break down project requirements they've produced for larger client initiatives into actionable tasks.{linebreak}{linebreak}You'll work with our clients to document and schedule smaller tasks, keep them up-to-date on larger initiatives, and gather feedback and other project-related information.{linebreak}{linebreak}Finally, you'll work with individual contributors to make sure they understand the scope of their weekly work and have what they need to do it.{linebreak}{linebreak}## About BranchLabs{linebreak}{linebreak}BranchLabs is a small but rapidly growing fully remote eCommerce consultancy. We provide eCommerce strategy and implementation services for our clients. Our clients are generally vertically integrated, branded B2C businesses. We help them sell more online, show their brand in the best light, and optimize their backend eCommerce processes.{linebreak}{linebreak}Our reputation is built on delivering results. We take pride in the work we produce. The products we deliver are high quality inside and out, and they help our clients capitalize on real opportunities. We work closely with stakeholders on our clients’ marketing teams, combining their understanding of their customers with our understanding of all things eCommerce. Together, we craft solutions that work for our clients and their customers.{linebreak}{linebreak}## Some Notes on Culture{linebreak}{linebreak}Here are some of our values. They’re always being refined based on what works and what doesn’t.{linebreak}{linebreak}- We value clear, concise communication.{linebreak}- Quality can only be assessed with a clear problem definition.{linebreak}- Context—understanding our clients and their customers—empowers individual contributors to find better solutions.{linebreak}- Automating repeatable processes frees up time for more interesting problems.{linebreak}- No process for process’ sake. No meetings for meetings’ sake. But there’s a place for both.{linebreak}- Build or use tools to provide predictability and eliminate boring work.{linebreak}- Individual productivity is hugely dependent on a minimally distracting, supportive environment.{linebreak}{linebreak}# Responsibilities{linebreak} ## Accountabilities{linebreak}{linebreak}As a manager, you will be measured by the output of your team. Here’s how we do that.{linebreak}{linebreak}- Projects are consistently completed on time and on budget. When a project is not on track—it happens!—the appropriate stakeholders are informed as soon as possible.{linebreak}- Individual contributors are able to make rapid progress on their tasks, as every bit of required information is organized and ready for them to begin work.{linebreak}- Priority tasks are being triaged and worked on appropriately, and critical issues are not slipping through the cracks.{linebreak}- Clients feel confident they have insight into their projects' progress, and are confident about our approach.{linebreak}{linebreak}## Responsibilities{linebreak}{linebreak}This is what you’ll actually be doing on a day-to-day basis.{linebreak}{linebreak}- Helping coordinate communication between our internal staff and clients.{linebreak}- Capturing requirements as issues in Jira, written with contextual information so they’re actionable for the individual doing the task.{linebreak}- Shepherding client requests from initial contact through to actionable format in our issue tracker, Jira.{linebreak}- Managing work requests from clients in Zendesk.{linebreak}- Gathering and documenting information to unblock individual contributors.{linebreak}- Reviewing and approving work before it is presented to clients or deployed.{linebreak}- Conducting status calls with clients to keep both our teams pointing the same direction.{linebreak}- Identifying and implementing opportunities to improve our process so we can deliver better results more efficiently. {linebreak}{linebreak}# Requirements{linebreak}## Required Qualifications{linebreak}{linebreak}These are the must haves.{linebreak}{linebreak}- Prior experience managing or leading.{linebreak}- Able to understand the boundaries of technical systems well enough to have an intuition for what requests might be small/medium/large.{linebreak}- A conversational knowledge of the web. Example knowledge might include rough HTML/CSS knowledge, understanding what Javascript is used for, how a server responds to a request for a web page, what a browser cache is, what cookies are used for, etc.{linebreak}- As a remote first company, excellent written communication skills are a must.{linebreak}- You are punctual and organized.{linebreak}{linebreak}## Ideal Qualifications{linebreak}{linebreak}If you fulfill the above *and* have experience with a few of the below, definitely get in touch.{linebreak}{linebreak}- Prior experience in an agile environment.{linebreak}- Technical enough to be able to help guide clients towards effective solutions in realtime, without developer input at all times.{linebreak}- Prior eCommerce admin, design, or development experience—particularly on Magento or Shopify.

We can help you learn that. {linebreak}* Most other company communication happens through our slack channel. {linebreak}You’ll have at least an every other week 1:1 that’s real time with your team lead. {linebreak}* Lots of collaboration, mockups and prototyping back and forth with project managers and developers. {linebreak}* We don’t have great design processes in place, it’s something we need some help with. {linebreak}* Currently all of our designs are in Sketch - you’ll need to be competent in sketch, however we are thinking of transiting to figma in the future to facilitate collaboration. {linebreak}* We lean heavily on CSS frameworks like Bootstrap. Ideally you have a solid understanding of component based design systems ([example](https://blog.bitsrc.io/building-a-consistent-ui-design-system-4481fb37470f)), however, this doesn’t disqualify you. {linebreak}* You don’t need to know any code, but any technical or code knowledge could prove helpful in your day to day job. At least an understanding of how HTML and CSS work to make recommendations the development team can understand and implement. {linebreak}{linebreak}### About you{linebreak}We need people who have strong intrinsic motivation to build great things. Managers of One is a concept we really embrace that comes from Basecamp. We need people who are always learning, excited to solve hard problems and always eager to do great work. Ideally someone who has experience in: {linebreak}* Direct experience or training in Designing WebApps and Mobile Apps. {linebreak}* This is primarily a user experience design position, although there may be some small more graphic design driven projects. (Re-working logos, help with marketing), although this would be the exception. {linebreak}{linebreak}### Pay & benefits{linebreak}This is an ongoing part time hourly contract position. {linebreak}* Pay will start at $30 / hr.{linebreak}* As a result there is no health or other traditional benefits. {linebreak}* However, we do offer online course sponsorship and we'll buy you ebooks that will help you be a better designer through our learning + book club. {linebreak}* As well, we offer time off bonuses that accrue at a rate of 5%. Works out to roughly 2 paid weeks a year. It’s nice to be able to take a paid day or a week off even when you are a contractor. {linebreak}{linebreak}{linebreak}# Responsibilities{linebreak} See Description {linebreak}{linebreak}# Requirements{linebreak}See Description {linebreak}{linebreak}#Salary{linebreak}$30 /hr{linebreak}
