Modern Tribe needs Experienced Digital Project Manager

Modern Tribe is looking for a talented and experienced freelance digital project manager based somewhere in North America. We’re a WordPress agency so hopefully you have run some projects with the platform.

If you are drawn to order like a moth to a flame, then drop us a line. If you like maintaining lists and seeing team members make progress because you set them up to succeed, then you are perfect for this gig.

If 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 Strategists that you will be working with as well as UX team members. This gig is about organization and management more than it is about creative input.


Who We Are

Modern Tribe is a rapidly growing software & design company. We develop custom solutions for some of the world’s largest companies, government institutions and smaller growing organizations. We pride ourselves on our ability to bridge people and technology and to bring the passion and dedication of an entrepreneur to every project. Our team is composed of talented employees and freelancers around North & South America (and a smattering across the globe).

Who You Are

We love working with each other because we have built a culture that suits us well. We work primarily with freelancers and coordinate their talents for large projects. To be on our team, you must be:

  • Happy: Where there is a will, there is a way. Having a positive disposition allows us to achieve great things and to support each other.
  • Helpful: Always looking for ways that you can help others.
  • Curious: It is essential that you have a passion for learning. Technology changes daily, and life has a way of constantly raising the bar.
  • Accountable: Our clients expect us to get the right thing done on budget and on time. Communicating expectations and meeting them is the cornerstone of success.
  • A Freelancer: This means that if you live within the USA, you will also maintain your own personal client list and that Modern Tribe will only comprise a proportion of your total income. Regardless of where you live, you need to be already freelancing.

For this role specifically, you should feel comfortable wrangling a chaotic digital media project into an organized one. You should ask lots of questions and feel a need to. We are hoping you will not just project manage, but understand the project, the business goals and engage in the technology enough to be able to anticipate scope, budget and timeline challenges.

Responsibilities

Your primary responsibility is to shepherd the project to success. We pride ourselves on our projects arriving on time, on scope, on budget with a happy team and customer. You will create confidence through organization and oversee communication. To do this, you will need to:

  • Manage scope, timeline and budget execution
  • Manage expectations for everyone on a project including the team, the account managers, and the customer
  • Run scrums and other status meetings
  • Review team hours
  • Write SOWs
  • Review budget
  • Set up and maintain tickets in the management system
  • Manage collection of assets and information from the customer
  • Perform meeting prep, prepare agendas, and handle all follow up
  • Produce weekly and monthly summary reports

Personal Competencies

  • Strong communication and/or experience working as part of a remote team
  • Self-motivated, detail-oriented, strong organizational skills, with a methodical approach to all tasks
  • Ability to prioritize workloads and meet deadlines
  • Ability to work independently with minimal oversight
  • Fluent English speaker

Required Knowledge & Experience

  • At least 5 years of experience working as a PM, ideally on a distributed web design / dev team
  • Experience with agile and waterfall management styles
  • Experience producing large CMS powered websites
  • A whiz when it comes to online collaboration tools. You feel at home when we talk about Slack, Google Hangout, Google Docs, Dropbox or any number of online PM tools.
  • Experience managing projects with budgets over $100k

Additional Experience (Bonus Points)

  • Experience with WordPress
  • Technical experience as a frontend or backend developer
  • Experience with enterprise level web development projects
  • Design experience

Location

Given the nature of this role, we’re exclusively seeking applicants located in North America who have a perfect command of the English language. Please do not apply if you are not totally fluent in English or are located / work outside of traditional U.S. business hours.

Compensation

Pay range is between $50-$60 USD per hour commensurate with qualifications and experience. The gig is about 20 hours per week of work. This is a one time contract position, though we are always seeking longer relationships with kick-ass people.

This is a full-time position with benefits.

  • Paid time off for vacations or illness

About Ushahidi

Ushahidi started as an ad-hoc group of Kenyan bloggers hammering out code in a couple of days from various locations, trying to figure out a way to gather more and better information about the 2008 post-election violence in Kenya. We have since grown to be a global organization with over 30 staff in seven different countries.

Ushahidi is a non-profit technology company that builds open source platforms to help citizens, journalists, organizations, governments, and others gather, manage, analyze, and visualize crowdsourced data. Our tools have been used by hundreds of thousands of individuals and organizations fighting for social causes in over 159 countries — whether for monitoring corruption in Zimbabwe, gathering real-time data on local poverty issues, or giving people a voice in the Syrian crisis.

Everyone at Ushahidi comes to work here because we know that every day people around the world use the tools we build to improve the lives of millions. In other words, in the fight for a better world we are the Q to the 007s out there.

Our team tends to think big and rewards creativity and an entrepreneurial attitude. Over the past six years, we have also built the iHub – the tech community hub in Nairobi, the BRCK – a redesign of connectivity for the developing world, and other projects like Savannah Fund, AfriLabs, and Crisis Mappers. Our ethos – we don’t just build products, we solve problems.

Why You Might Be A Good Fit

  • Independence. The team agrees upon goals, but how they are accomplished is left largely up to the individuals. Nobody will be leaning over your shoulder telling you what to do everyday, we expect you to be able to do that yourself.
  • Team oriented. Desire to work with and support other developers in the team. We rely on team members to support each other, review each others code, and generally help each other keep winning.
  • Intrinsically motivated. Ushahidi came from Nairobi, but team members work all around the world. If all you need is a crazy a cool project, wifi, and coffee (or tea), then you’ll fit right in.
  • Ability to get things done and ship. We’d love you to write beautiful elegant code every time but getting things done matters. You’ll need to pick the right balance between doing it right and doing it fast.
  • Empathy and an interest in helping our user. A desire to work with the community and customers, dig into their use cases, and help them solve problems.

Why You Might Not Be A Good Fit

  • We pay competitively at Ushahidi, however, keep in mind that we are a mission driven non-profit.
  • You only want to wear one hat. Ushahidi is growing (25+ employees) but we take on the goals of much larger organizations. In practice this means that all Ushahidians end up wearing multiple hats and working on multiple projects. If that excites you, great! If you are set on never venturing out of your job title, you’re going to get frustrated fast.
  • You want to be in an office surrounded by colleagues. You will most likely be operating on your own unless you are based in Nairobi, where about half our team is based. If you need to come into an office and talk to your boss everyday to stay motivated, this job is not for you. Also, we give flexibility and also ask for flexibility to work with different time zones, so you'll need to be comfortable taking meetings at odd hours.

Why working at Ushahidi is awesome

  • Open culture: Ushahidi is a place where you can be your full self and contribute in the way that’s best for you. We distribute decisions to the people who do the work, so you own what you do. And our culture is constantly evolving, with self-defined teams deliberately readjusting four times a year.
  • We reward taking risks. Ushahidi works on the bleeding edge of technology for social change, that means taking risks with our efforts. We celebrate swinging for the fences, regardless of the outcome.
  • Our goal in hiring is to find great people first, great skills second.
  • We don’t care where you live. As long as you have Internet access, live wherever you want. Ushahidi team members currently live all over the world: from Japan and New Zealand, to Nairobi and San Francisco.
  • We don’t care when you work. There are no “business hours” at Ushahidi, we are milestone based, not a sit-in-your-chair from 9 to 5 company.
  • Quality of life. Ushahidi is a place you can be your full self. Ushahidi attracts workaholics, so we all work hard to make sure everyone has a work-life balance.
  • Benefits. Take what you want vacation policy (Minimum 25 days a year), parental leave, allowance for health insurance, allowance for a co-working space.
  • We use a transparent pay calculator to determine your salary and to be fair and unbiased.
