Project Manager, DDB

Job description

At DDB, one of the market’s leading Advertising Groups with 60+2 years of presence,

we are looking to hire a Project Manager to assist on the coordination of the workflow in the agency.

The role reports to the Traffic Director.

Who are you

You have at least 3 years of work experience as a project manager and you understand “the butterfly effect” in workflow

You have a strong knowledge of project management tools.

You are orderly by design. You know how to keep deadlines and make sure the process works smoothly.

You understand timelines, budgets, and workload requirements.

You hold a bachelor’s degree in computer science, business, or a related field. A Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is a plus.

Above all, you are nice and talented!

Let’s break down what that means for us.

Nice.

  • You have a positive attitude, seeing the opportunity even in a problem. You have a winner’s attitude and a “can do” mentality.
  • You care not only about your job but for the team as well. If someone spills their coffee, you clean the mess. Everyone wants to collaborate with you.
    Long story short: company > your team > yourself.
  • You are self-driven but you also have the charisma to motivate the ones around you. You don’t just follow orders, you create opportunities. You can connect those dots to create the big picture.

Talented.

  • You are talented in a way that you raise the bar for the whole team.
  • Your work has real impact on the business of DDB. Impact doesn’t translate in the volume of work you produce but is more about the quality of your outcome.

Our founder Bill Bernbach once said, “Life is too short to sacrifice so much of it, to living with a bastard”.
