Day One is looking for a Creative Project Manager to assist with managing processes, productions, resourcing and client deliverables, in addition to facilitating vendor scoping and contracting. In this position, you’ll play a crucial role in how we’ll execute and deliver projects and be part of a team of mixed background creatives, pushing the work as we build an agency for the next ten years (and 24 hours).
You will lead day to day processes that will assist in getting creative projects off the ground through completion, reporting into our Senior Director of Production and VP Creative Director. This role requires a strong mix of creative thinking, social & digital understanding, time management, organizational skills, and most importantly an ability to keep projects on track, on budget and at the highest level of creative excellence.
Our company culture is at the core of everything we do. It defines our vibe. It’s what makes every day, Day One. We offer a highly collaborative environment where smart and passionate people come together to solve some of creative communications challenges. It’s no secret; we work hard — but only on the things we love. From the day this agency was created, we vowed to only work on projects that fire us up. And that’s not changing any day soon. We emphasize and value our relationships — after all, we’re powered by them. Our colleagues, clients, and partners are the most important part of our business.
This role is based in New York, but may require the creative process of projects being led out of both coasts.
The right candidate will have a passion to learn, a love for creation and a get-it-done spirit.
