Your next opportunity awaits

Industry Dive is seeking a Design Project Manager to join our design team. The Design PM will report to the Creative Director.

You will join a team of skilled graphic designers to optimize the design process, and work with stakeholders to shepherd the final product across the finish line. We are looking for someone who is highly organized, with a can-do attitude and commitment to excellent design.

What can you bring to the table:

    • 2+ years relevant experience as a design project manager, ideally in an agency environment (bonus if experienced in creation of content marketing collateral)
    • Adept at simultaneously managing dozens of design projects
    • Adept at conducting thorough, accurate and fast reviews of designed content marketing collateral to ensure each piece adheres to the clients’ brand guidelines
    • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
    • Self-motivated and self-sufficient with strong problem-solving skills
    • Highly process-oriented with strong attention to detail
    • Great at negotiating deadlines and managing stakeholder expectations because you know, first-hand, how much time and effort it takes to design collateral like an infographic or whitepaper in InDesign, a logo in Illustrator or edit a photo in Photoshop
    • Bonus: Jira and Confluence experience


    • Shepherds studioID (content marketing) design projects from initial request to finish line – e.g. fields requests, assesses timelines, writes and reviews creative briefs and ensures delivery by deadline
    • Conducts thorough, accurate and fast reviews of designed content marketing collateral to ensure each piece adheres to clients’ brand guidelines and meets our quality standards
    • Proactively communicates project updates to Creative Director, designers, studioID project managers and other stakeholders
    • Creates and manages tasks and timelines using Jira, Confluence and related software
    • Tracks freelancer expenses – i.e. processes invoices, updates budget spreadsheet and works with Accounting team to ensure freelancers are paid in timely manner
    • Helps Creative Director onboard new designers and smoothly embed them in workflow
