Company Description

The Electron Shop is a rapidly-growing agency singularly focused on becoming the Chief Digital Officer and guiding digital transformation for companies of many sizes and industries.  Founded in 2013, the company is guided by two successful agency entrepreneurs and who have worked on major brands together and apart since 1995.  The Electron Shop’s number one benefit and requirement is a workplace of smart people, primarily because we think smart people are also funny.  And we like to laugh.  We don’t have ping-pong tables, foosball or other idle toys; we are very passionate about bringing the power of digital to clients who are under pressure to grow their businesses.  Oh, and we don’t allow anyone to be mean.  There is a strict no a**hole rule here.

Job Description

The Electron Shop has an immediate opening for a results-driven Project Manager with a flair for creative thinking, management, and building client and internal relationships. As a “go to” manager of large, multifaceted initiatives, you will lead by example and ensure the timely and accurate delivery of cutting edge consulting and digital projects.  Our deliverables are anything to do with Digital Transformation at client organizations.  They include technical architecture, customer and prospect database hygiene and analytics, video production, large integrated marketing campaigns, marketing automation system maintenance, analytics, complex web site builds, advertising and more.  This is a great opportunity at a privately-held agency; not a big agency grind.
