OddBird is looking for a Project Manager to join the team.
We’re Looking for Someone Who:
Has knowledge of the web design and development process
Can manage multiple projects simultaneously
Will help plan, monitor, and facilitate projects on time and within budget
Is an excellent verbal and written communicator
Is not tied to a single methodology, but can help guide the team in finding & implementing processes that work for us
Is located in a continental North America timezone (Eastern-Alaska)
Take ownership over internal and client meetings:
Identify potential risks and work to avoid project blockers
Monitor project timelines and budgets
Ensure team is clear on what to work on and when it is due
At OddBird, We:
Are a small team (you’ll be #7)
Enjoy working collaboratively on complex problems
Collectively set the vision & direction of the company: how we work, who we work for, and how we manage resources
Pay ourselves a competitive hourly rate, equally across the entire team, with total transparency
Are free to take on tasks and explore roles beyond the initial job posting (if you have other skills & interests, we want to know about them!)
All contribute to writing and reviewing documentation
Give and receive design critiques and code reviews as collaborators
Have lives & interests outside of work
Set our own hours, and work remote
Listen to users, and enjoy having our assumptions challenged/tested
Care about diversity in the tech community
Care about the accessibility of our projects
Are engaged in the software community – writing articles, sharing tools, and giving talks
Both our external and internal rates (what we charge clients, and what we pay ourselves) are set collaboratively as a team, and change over time.
This isn’t a cubicle job with dental, a 401k, and paid vacation. We’re also not a start-up expecting you to work nights and weekends towards future equity. This is a contract job with long term potential, a good hourly rate, a collective vision, and a lot of flexibility. We work together to find clients, and we work together to build them the best tools we can. When there’s work to be done, we all do what we can, and we get paid for our time.
We’re looking for 10 to 20 billable hours per week to start, with potential for more. (Contract hours & rates don’t map cleanly to a 40hr work week. Our most active members rarely bill more than 30 hours.)
Expect two rounds – first with a few of the team members, then with the full team. Both will be open discussion about web development process. We want a sense of your familiarity with web tech & project management, but no coding experience is required, and there will not be any tests.
We hope to continue learning and improving, holding ourselves to higher standards, and having difficult conversations when necessary.
