Wanted Project Manager
EPIC is looking for a passionate experienced Project Manager to join the ranks of other like-minded pixel lovers.
Do you get excited by the idea of making great ideas come to life? Figuring out clever and creative solutions to make the most out of your client’s budget? Then you might want to learn more about what we have to offer…
Who you are
A truly successful project is a rare commodity and project managers are essential to “make things happen”! You are the first and last piece of a jigsaw puzzle.
First, you have to convince the client to trust you. Then you have to understand their needs even if they cannot always express them. In the end, you need to deliver a project that goes beyond your client’s and team’s expectations while keeping the budget under control. This is the daily challenge you’ll face at EPIC.
That’s why we’re not just looking for another getting-sh*t-done project manager but for someone who can transform a simple idea into a strong vision with a great output, someone who is a true team player with exceptional empathy skills and who can be a team leader when needed.
The truth is you are a thinker, an organiser, a diplomat, a money manager, a time keeper but more importantly you are a doer.
You are Wise, Mighty, Visionary.
Be sure you fulfill all these requirements:
- You have a proven 3+ years experience managing ambitious digital projects;
- You have used the most popular CMS (WordPress, Drupal,…) and have a good knowledge of how they work;
- You have an eagle-eye vision to find the misplaced pixel in a ready-to-be-sent design proposal;
- You know that semantic structure in MS Word is far from being the most useless feature;
- You don’t look for the emergency exit when you have to speak in front of a bunch of people;
- You are convinced that Agile methodology will save the world;
- You can speak (and write) French and English (B2 minimum!) fluently (any other language is strongly appreciated!).
These skills are not mandatory but let’s say they are strongly appreciated:
- You love technology, communication and creativity and all the things in between;
- You don’t feel lost in front of cells and complex formulas;
- You’re a musician, a sculptor, a friendly companion and you like to cook as well ? You’ve got all our attention;
- You’re living the internet, you’re eating the internet and you’re sleeping with the internet but you’re still in a human form.
Your daily job
Wake up, do yoga, go out for a run, write your memories, or hit the snooze button (again), take a shower and eat. Come to work, smile and say hello, go to your daily stand-up meeting and do a spontaneous pep talk to cheer up your team. Check up your emails, analyse your clients’ feedbacks/ change requests/ dreams (pick your favorite) and reply with empathy. Meet new potential clients to discuss about how EPIC could help them. Prepare your next kick-off meeting, listen to your team feedback and advices about technical or creative direction. “Skype” with a client to review the latest design proposal sitting in a fatboy. Explain him why you won’t make their logo a bit bigger. Play video games, discuss TV shows, debate news while eating the weekly French-Fries-Friday©. Go home singing and/or moonwalking. Sleep. Repeat…
Review your team progress, find solutions, solve problems.
What we really care about
BE SOLUTION ORIENTED
Some days you will love your clients and team to bits, and some days you will want to go Super Saiyan on them (…and them on you…).
But remember that they trust you to make the best out of their budget and hopes.
You will work for small local compagnies or huge international businesses, and all your clients will wait for you to always get over issues that will happen during the project to deliver the best. Because this is what we do at EPIC.
Understand your clients, understand their business and goals, be empathic, be creative, be strategic and deliver projects beyond the clients’ goals.
Technology, social media, web design, mobile apps, everything is evolving very fast these days. It’s really hard to keep up with all the cool new things available to create engaging and meaningful digital experiences. Still, that’s part of your job: keeping on top on these trends to anticipate and to understand them well enough to know how, when and where to use them.
This can only be achieved if you are truly passionate about digital. You are constantly reading articles and surfing the web, enjoying the latest trends, and feeling exhilarated about being strapped to the ever changing digital beast which is our age of I.T.
We are proud of the warm, relaxed and friendly environment that abounds here, at EPIC. Every team member has been chosen for their skills, as well as for their ability to fit in with the team.
This friendly working environment can only be improved with the addition of you, as a new project manager.
They are 20, considerate, clever and capable individuals who spin the table-football-players at midday, hunt pokemons, photograph gently swaying grass at dawn, breed chickens in their garden, walk in socks around the office, trek alpine peaks or practice yoga (almost) every Thursday.
They are now an integral part of your life. They talk to you not only at the coffee machine but they know you and make you a better person.
