Our mission is to create stunning world-class programs and content that tell our company story, delight our customers and help Hubbers do the best work of their lives.

Historically a live event practice, the CM team is now also a sophisticated virtual broadcast producer, creating boundary-pushing multi-track programs for hundreds-of-thousands of live viewers, around the globe and across multiple digital platforms. The experiences we’ve gained creating scalable virtual preograms will be vital for continuing to extend the reach of our brand and programs as we move to hybrid events. 

We’re currently searching for an experienced senior project manager to drive the successful production and coordination of these interconnected teams. The successful candidate will report directly to the VP of Corporate Marketing and work cross-functionally with the CM team, orgs across GitHub, and with vendors, contractors, agencies and partners, to manage schedules, costs, scope and quality. They will take ownership over successful project outcomes, set priorities, identify and manage risks, drive timelines, and implement high-impact process improvements.

  • Monitor and review project progress and timelines; adjust schedules and plans as needed; and identify and resolve blockers to ensure project success.
  • Track utilization of project, budget and team resources and successfully manage against plan and budget.
  • Manage day-to-day project tracking, including status reports and updates, GitHub repo and issue management, notes distribution, follow-ups, and project assignments.
  • Management of one or two large projects or a couple of small to medium sized interrelated projects requiring complex cross-functional collaboration.
  • Document internal processes and develop and maintain project playbooks - proactively identify process gaps and implement frameworks to achieve operational scale. 
  • Vendor contract RFP process, negotiation and management including coordination with GitHub procurement and finance teams.
