Digital Project Manager

NewCity, a digital agency in the eastern US, is seeking a Digital Project Manager who loves working with a team to solve complex problems for our clients.

The Company

NewCity is a 26 year-old, 25-person firm, working in a highly collaborative, low-ego environment to create digital experiences for the real world. We ask big questions, dream big dreams, but at the end of the day we build things that work. Our culture is can-do, roll-up-your-sleeves, I’ve got your back and you’ve got mine. We’re constantly learning, experimenting and reinventing NewCity. We design and build enterprise-level websites for higher education, large non-profit, and commercial clients. Our core expertise is in the higher education and non-profit space where we’ve been pioneers of human-centered design for over two decades.

We’re organized around seven key disciplines: user experience, visual design, content strategy, development, digital marketing and analytics, project management and business development. Our project teams are made up of people from multiple disciplines.

The Job

As a Digital Project Manager, you will be supporting both the day-to-day and overall management of a wide variety of projects and ongoing support clients.

  • Use a variety of tools to keep your projects organized by facilitating internal meetings, building schedules and budgets, documenting notes and decisions, and communicating project health/status reports to clients and company leadership.
  • Provide project management support to both new and Ongoing Services clients on a wide variety of digital projects, from large university-wide website redesigns to maintenance contracts.
  • Get to know the people on your teams and learn how to support and motivate them to do their best work.
  • Participate in resource planning with the Project Management and Ongoing Services teams.
