Translation is an independent company built to help ambitious brands harness the power of culture to solve their biggest challenges. As a unique mix of experts in culture, technology, and storytelling, we are united by a passion to grow brands in ways that advertising alone can never do. Everyone at Translation has a major (what it says on our email signatures) and a minor (our secret superpowers). We are creators, collectors, historians, and more. And in everything we do, we allow our expert fluency across different pockets of culture to inform the boardroom and elevate the work.
Drive the internal workflow on each client/project, from initiation and planning to insight and idea development to execution and post-project refinements to job close.
Along with their partners in account, creative, strategy and production, project management is specifically responsible for: Staff Plans and SOW development, Resource Planning and Management, Project Schedules, Asset Management, Workflow Stewardship, Execution and Delivery, and Budget Management and Reconciliation.
As Sr. Project Manager you are an agent of Translation as a whole, not of any one department, beholden to the work and to the success of our and our clients’ business.
You will monitor and course correct constantly…keeping an ear to the ground for new and changing information, team needs, discrepancies amongst the team…making the right conversations happen and engaging the right experts for their critical input at the right moment.
It is critical that this Sr. Project Manager maintains an air of calm…having plans a, b, c and d, and knows how best to steer complex and fluid project teams.
