We’re Hiring A Project Manager
If you’ve got talent burning a hole in your pocket, wishing your job really made use of
your skills, you might be just the person I’m looking for.
I’ve got a ton of exciting new projects in the works this year…so many that I need a hand

A few questions, if I may…

Do you love learning new platforms and programs, as long as they work?
` Are you a competent personality wrangler? In other words, you get along well with
others, but you also get things done.
` Are you the one that friends go to for help, when their shortcut didn’t work?
` Do you love watching from the back of the stage, knowing that the show was able to
go on because of all your behind-the-scenes work?

expansion happening with my brand…not just this year, but beyond.
That’s right…this is a full-time remote position.
` Not a part-time gig.
` Not a consulting contract.

` The Project Manager is the nucleus of each project. He/she will be held responsible for
how well things get done in the project.
` The Project Manager will evaluate each project daily to make sure it’s on pace, and
prioritize the product flow as needed.
The Project Manager is in charge of expanding and contracting the team as needed for
each project. (For example, during a launch more programmers and designers will be
needed. It’ll be your job to find, direct and manage them.)
` The Project Manager works with team members such as the paid traffic manager,
programmers, etc.). These are people working on other projects at the same time, and
the Project Manager will be responsible for getting status updates from them daily.
` Project Manager is responsible for making sure SOPs (Standard Operating Procedure)
are followed and deadlines are met by each team member.
` The Project Manager reviews each increment to make sure it’s a working increment (i.e.
an increment can be an opt-in page).
` The Project Manager manages the ‘Task Board’ (The ‘Task Board’ is project scope
broken down by: Committed Task, Tasks Not Started, Tasks in Progress, Tasks
Completed and is updated daily.)
` The Project Manager will run the “Daily Stand Up” to make sure their team members
are focused and moving forward on the right task board item. What’s the Daily Stand
Up, you ask? It’s a 15-minute daily meeting where the Project Manager discovers 3
What was accomplished since the last daily standup
What is going to be accomplished before the next stand up
What is holding them back from accomplishing their tasks.
` The Project Manager will also do a Daily Stand Up with brand owner/leadership.
` The Project Manager tests everything, serving as the final check before something
` The Project Manager is responsible for knowing if the work being delivered by the
team is on brand and of appropriate quality.
` The Project Manager will QC each task to ensure that it is ready to publish. And if it’s
not, the Project Manager will require more work on the task.
Here’s who this position is not for:
` Those looking for a “side job” while growing their own business, then this isn’t for you.
` People who have a lot going on already, and don’t have the time and focus needed to
create quality content.
` The people who haven’t read a non-fiction book (or podcast or blog) about business,
marketing in a very long time.
` Those who aren’t willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
` Those who prefer to be front-facing content creators.

` Is resourceful.
` Can handle stress and tight deadlines.
` Works very well with other people and can build rapport quickly with both team
members and vendors.
` Has great attention to detail and brand quality.
` Is not locked into just working 9-5 but embraces a “until it gets done” attitude.
` Is a high-functioning communicator.
` Is organized.
` Takes ownership and pride in their work.
` Is not afraid of new challenges.
` Loves learning new things and can implement new ideas quickly.
` Adapts really well to changes on-the-go.
