Project Manager - Chicago, IL

We look for a seriously organized, leadership-minded problem solver who wants to jump into the weeds of a project. You’re probably detail oriented, have the ability to juggle multiple projects at once, and don’t solve problems the same old way every time.  You’re smart & resourceful; with an ability to learn quickly and are comfortable figuring-things-out-as-you-go. This role does involve 15-20% travel.

At least 2 or more years of project management, market research, client relationship management, event coordinator, marketing event coordinator, or other similar backgrounds.

What you’ll do:
  • Manage & track project budgets.
  • Keep the Senior Director / Director and other members of the team organized and on track for key project deliverables.
  • Source and coordinate session details, while acting as a resource for team members until project completion.
  • Create an intentional and meaningful project experience based on project objectives.
  • Be a thought partner throughout the design and implementation of a project.
  • Proactively support project teams by staying up on industry trends, client industries, and strategy methodologies.
  • Support and lead organizational operations.

How we’ll know it’s working out:
  • Projects are efficient and profitable.
  • The team recognizes the value you bring through your hustle, adaptability, attention to detail, professionalism, and willingness to go above and beyond.
  • Client relationships are strengthened because you were able to identify challenges, create solutions,  and enhance the overall project experience.
  • You’re able to adapt quickly to changing organizational needs.
  • The organization benefits from your hustle and willingness to lean-in as a key contributor and leader in identifying and improving company operations.

What we’re looking for:
  • Entrepreneurial — get things done, take smart risks, try new approaches.
  • Mindset of being proactive vs reactive.
  • Strong attention to detail and a strive for excellence.
  • Professional communication experience with clients and internal teams.
  • Savvy user of Google Suite, Microsoft, etc and are able to “pick up” on new platforms quickly.
