Who Is AppSumo
AppSumo is the tech powerhouse you’ve probably never heard of. We’ve helped launch MailChimp, Evernote, and Dropbox (to name a few) — over 1,500 startups have come through our doors and become household names in software. (Learn more about us here!)
Our motto? The tools to run your business shouldn’t put you out of business. And we are committed to bringing our community the absolute best deals on software. With thousands of successful product launches and over a million entrepreneurs served, we’re looking to take AppSumo to the next level.
That’s where you, the Creative Project Manager come in.
About This Role
This job is all about streamlining and coordinating our creative process. We work with over 500 SaaS founder partners a year and create top-of-the-line assets to help them launch their products. We are looking for a hyper-organized PM to ensure all results are high quality, on time, and communicated throughout the process.
On the day-to-day, you’ll be:
- Coordinating the deliverables for our copy, design, and video teams
- Providing project updates on a consistent basis and being a liaison between our creative team and our partner teams in Slack
- Using Meistertask to monitor progress, make adjustments as needed, and measure performance
- Working cross-functionally with our sales team to make sure launches have creative deliverables met
This is a unique role that requires crystal clear communication skills, attention to detail, and the ability to keep many deadlines and projects straight at once. If you’re the planner of your friend group, we want to talk to you.
- 2 years of demonstrated ability managing creative projects (PMP certification is a plus!)
- Ability to tackle problems creatively and communicate critical information
- Strong familiarity with project management software tools, methodologies, and best industry practices
- Experience seeing projects through their life cycle
In the first three months of this role, success means creating a process that reduces the lead time for getting one of our partners from close to launch.
Why work for us?
We provide a competitive compensation and benefits package. We have moved to a hybrid workplace where you can choose your best working environment.
When at the office, you will be equipped with a standing desk, a monitor, and any other tech vital to feel productive. Oh, and you can bring your dog to work. We're animal lovers here!
In addition, we offer a stocked fridge, any snacks you want, and (once we’re allowed outside again) two all-expenses-paid company trips with the team to the local Sheraton—just kidding: last year, we went to an all-inclusive resort in Costa Rica; you can check it out here.
At AppSumo, we treat all of our teammates like adults and trust that you'll get it done when you have something to do. If you want to run an errand, hit the gym, or meet a friend for lunch, you’re encouraged to do so. You can work from home as often as you'd like, and you’ll have unlimited vacation days to go on adventures. (Everyone says it, but we mean it: We expect you to take time for yourself.)
We’re committed to crafting a diverse, encouraging, and collaborative working environment—every person we bring onto the team helps cultivate a culture that we’re proud of.
