55k-35k Dependent on experience

Zenman is an award-winning interactive marketing agency in Denver’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. We shine a spotlight on our clients to tell their unique story and grow their businesses. We are unapologetically driven by process and live and breathe quantitative creativity because we believe that websites can be beautiful and useful.

Zenman is looking for an experienced Project Manager with an eagerness to dive into a fast-paced and evolving digital agency atmosphere. The Project Manager will oversee projects, facilitate client meetings, keep the ship afloat, and raise a flag when we fall out of process. An ideal candidate has a comprehensive understanding of digital marketing, brand development and strategy, and website design and development.

If you:

  • Compete for the fewest e-mails in your inbox at the end of the day
  • Love discovering hidden meeting times for a group of extremely busy team members
  • Find not-so-secret delight in checking off to do lists
  • Thrive in a fast-paced setting where tasks change daily (and more honestly, by the minute)
  • Have an ability to turn a mistake into a learning experience
  • Aren’t sorry when people make fun of you for having to schedule your professional and personal life several weeks out
  • And most of all, if you’ve been seeking a job where all of these traits have a chance to be polished, appreciated, and expanded… …this might be just the job for you.

Our style is a little like a start-up (less formality, more efficiency) but the workday typically winds down around 5. Our client connection is human, our work is mature, our clients are sizable and our websites drive ROI.

Main duties include leading the inception, development, and successful conclusion of agency projects; facilitating client meetings while managing expectations; closely reviewing statements of work with the team and working with Account Executives when scope creep exists; supervising project budgets and team utilization; and communicating progress of each project to various stakeholders.

This candidate will have an entrepreneurial attitude, be passionate about digital marketing, and most importantly will genuinely care about our clients. This is a client-facing position that requires critical thinking and extreme organizational capabilities while being able to make quick decisions, multitask, and solve challenges on the go.

:: Zenman Cultur-ama
Culture is more than just Free-Lunch Fridays, but that’s a good starting place.We have an imaginary developer named Giovanni. We’ve got some sports freaks and some gamer geeks. Some are into graphic novels, others play in local bands. And office dogs are our constant companions.
To us, culture is also tied to accountability. Toward that end, we have:

  • Level 10 Meetings: Same time. Same agenda. Every week. No kidding. Plus a daily standup at 8am sharp.
  • Accountability Chart: For knowing who’s in charge of what and directing communication accordingly. This prevents unnecessary CCing. (Just…don’t.)
  • Own vs. Rent: If your life is for rent, you don’t learn to buy. Or buy-in. Zenman people don’t just rent office space. They commit.
  • Retrospectives: Every two weeks. Are you a happy face, a squiggly mouth or a sad face? Why? Zenman’s health depends on hearing what you have to say.

Other Zenman Bennies (that’s benefits, not benedicts, you brunch-goers):

  • Work Laptop
  • Health Benefits
  • Cool co-working space.
  • Free lunch every Friday.
  • Unlimited vacation, and your birthday counts as a holiday – take that off, too.

If you think all this sounds like the type of place you’d love, we’d love to hear from you.
