Senior Project Managers report to an Evans Hunt Program Director. 



Location


It’s wonderful if you can join us in Calgary, and almost as wonderful if you’re anywhere in Canada.

 

All candidates must have a valid Canadian work permit. Evans Hunt will not be providing sponsorship at this time. We’re open to considering international candidates working remotely during our business hours in Mountain Time.



Job overview


At Evans Hunt, our mission is to execute projects seamlessly from project intake to launch for clients of all sizes across different industries and marketing needs. We are currently looking for an experienced Senior Project Manager that will be responsible for the successful completion of projects that are largely digital, creative and media based. Experience with website migration projects will be considered an asset.



Who we’re looking for


As part of the Client Engagement team, the ideal candidate for the Sr Project Manager role will check off the boxes below.


You have a proven track record of successful projects. You have extensive experience managing various projects in marketing; website builds, product management, and strategy. Agency experience will be considered a very helpful asset.


You can work across disciplines. You want to oversee a large digital client portfolio with multiple streams of work. You understand user experience, creative design, development, QA, analytics, and SEO/SEM and can translate all this into simpler terms.


You’re self-motivated. You are comfortable working with limited supervision and like to be the person people come to when they’re looking for the next step. And you have a passion for ongoing learning and continuous improvement, particularly around process and methodology.


You use technology to do your best work. You have experience with collaboration and issue-tracking tools such as AzureDev Ops, Jira, Trello and Miro. You’re proficient with the Google Suite (Mail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides) and other productivity tools such as MS Excel, MS Word, and Keynote.



A day in the life


Working at an agency, you'll have the opportunity to work with clients across a diverse range of industries simultaneously. As a Sr. Project Manager, there are a few activities that will likely take up most of your time. These include:


  • Managing & prioritizing multiple concurrent fast-paced projects with unmatched attention to detail
  • Understanding the client’s goals, objectives, and requirements, and translate them into an actionable project plan
  • Creating briefs, statements of work, and detailed schedules
  • Forecasting, tracking, and managing project budgets, purchase orders, and invoices
  • Finding the right team to work on your projects (“resourcing”), while working with a team of Project Managers to manage teams with conflicting priorities
  • Working closely with clients, internal teams and vendors, acting as the primary point of contact through project delivery
  • Managing and maintaining scope, and communicating the status of project scope to both internal and external teams  
  • Managing, documenting and communicating risks, changes, and issues that affect the project
  • Mentoring and working with Project Managers and Coordinators
  • Creating a positive, collaborative and team-oriented work environment 



What’s in it for you


Evans Hunt is a full-service digital agency focused on the integration of strategy, creative, and technology. Our experienced team of 100+ employees delivers fully integrated marketing solutions for top national and international organizations. We're a fun place that does good work. Here's what we're offering:


  • Salary: Starting at $80,000 per year, subject to experience. 
  • Culture & lifestyle: We're an agency, and we work hard, but life is also for living. We strive to provide a respectful and inclusive workplace in which all are welcome. We're also not much for micromanaging––you'll have a lot of flexibility to deliver great work in ways that make sense to you.
  • Office availability: We're currently working remotely during the pandemic, with optional in-office desks available for booking, if you choose.
  • Stuff: A laptop will be provided to you, along with a phone plan if you want it.


What we’ll ask


There are a couple of things we'll ask for as part of the application process:

  • Cover letter: Tell us a little about yourself and your fit for the job.
  • Resume: A summary of your previous work experience as well as notable projects you’ve worked on will help provide a glimpse of who we’re interviewing if selected. 


Timing

We are looking to fill the position in Q1 2023. We’ll be collecting resumes in December, but will reach out to qualified candidates in January to schedule interviews. 


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The rich perspectives that result from diversity promotes innovation and business success, and makes us more creative, flexible, productive and competitive. These differences are an important part of not only our culture, but our reputation and achievements. At Evans Hunt, diversity is a fact, and equity and inclusion are choices we make as individuals and leaders.
