Type/Code’s project manager and studio manager of two and a half years is leaving in mid-February - we’re looking for someone to fill her shoes.
The role is split between producing digital and print projects, managing staff, and taking care of general studio administration. You will be the first point of contact for leads, will be integral in the pitch process, and will guide clients through the lifecycle of their project. You will help maintain job listings, weekly timesheets, health insurance and payroll. You will help manage our bookkeeper, accountant, and attorney, plan parties and events, and identify and submit work for awards and recognition. The position is challenging, and often very demanding and requires a strong attention to detail — we are looking for someone who will thrive in such an environment.
The ideal candidate will have exceptional communication skills, be highly organized, and have a background in the design or technology industries. Prior experience in project management and studio administration is a huge plus, but not required. Each new project brings on a new set of relationships and domain knowledge, the ability to learn quickly and think on your feet is essential. While we strive to offer a flexible work schedule, we can only consider local candidates for this position. The position is open immediately.
With a small team, and highly central role, a project manager/studio manager will have the opportunity to shape Type/Code’s trajectory. We are seeking someone who is able to identify opportunities for change and finds great motivation in the possibilities.
A little bit about Type/Code: we’re an interaction design studio that works with ambitious clients to bring powerful ideas to life. Clients range from NYC local businesses like MoMA to technology startups to large media properties all the way to Google. We focus on conceiving, designing, and developing exceptional digital experiences, across all sorts of devices. While a significant amount of our work is client driven, we jump at any opportunity to build self-driven tools and products. Our studio atmosphere is fun, laid-back, and full of a passionate group of friends who are never not working love what they do.
- Pay commensurate with experience.
- Central location in sunny Dumbo with a beautiful view of Manhattan.
- Regularly stocked snacks, coffee, and beer (periodically on tap).
- Bike and pet friendly.
- Opportunities for equity participation
- Health and dental insurance plan.
- Monthly gym stipend.
