Project Manager: Creative Services

POSITION DESCRIPTION

The Open Media Foundation seeks a Project Manager to coordinate the creative services that OMF provides to nonprofit and government clients. This role will oversee the development and execution of a wide range of projects delivered by OMF’s staff and volunteers with a focus on optimizing efficiency and impact for the organizations we serve.

Together with our Creative Director, you’ll create bids and timelines while communicating with clients to execute plans within budget and on-time.
