What makes our PM position a lot of fun
Our team and culture are everything to us. We value having empathy for one another and recognizing the challenges we are all going through both inside and outside the workplace. By doing so, we maximize our ability to help our team members be happy, successful, and themselves.
To be in it for the long-haul we must be comfortable, which means being relaxed, creative, and able to do great work without always needing to be serious. Being transparent and honest about who we are helps us to resolve internal and external conflict, develop deeper relationships, and most importantly, be happy.
Our culture is a summation of the ways that we are different from other companies. We take pride in our unique abilities and strive to do the best work in our industry. However, we never stop working to improve and grow both individually and as a team. We teach each other, we teach our clients, and we seek learning opportunities in all forms. We’re hungry for knowledge in the world and seek to leverage each other’s experiences. We are building a company where everyone can be their best selves and have a meaningful impact on one another and our industry.
If you are great today but want to be better tomorrow, this is the home for you.
Experience: We hire for potential, but recognize a proven track record. We believe the right culture can be the catalyst of growth for a motivated individual, and we’ll never get in the way of your growth and success.
We are looking for experience with managing projects in a design services consulting environment. Communication must be extremely thoughtful and strategic, and you must have experience working with external clients.
Skills: You must be a Project Manager with exposure to a number of software development and project management methodologies, and comfortable with tailoring the approach to what’s best for our clients. We typically have several to a dozen projects running simultaneously, so you must possess strong organizational skills and remain in the loop on concurrent work streams. While you won’t be responsible for leading our business development efforts, experience with Statement of Work (SOW) development and project proposals will be beneficial to this role. You must enjoy communicating from the heart and looking to do what’s best for both ourselves and our clients. If we are our authentic selves and communicate transparently, our relationships will naturally flourish, and that’s what makes Punch Through one of the best places to work.
To feel happy and be successful in this position, you must be able to think strategically and systematically, enjoy mentoring for the sake of improving yourself and others, and feel natural alignment with our company value of being selfless.
Strategic Thinker: In addition to supporting our existing projects, you will help lead the growth of our project and client management practices and further lay the foundation for the ability to grow our delivery team in the future. It will be imperative to success in this role that you can step back and see the big picture. You’ll be making decisions and discussing strategies that take into account multiple projects, stakeholders with a wide breadth of personalities and responsibilities, and internal and external business implications.
Curiosity: Be great today, be better tomorrow. We believe that if you aren’t curious about how the world works the way it does or you don’t challenge expectations, then you will never grow. Our teams resonate with each other in large part due to our passion for learning and growing.
Independent: You will be the sole full-time person dedicated to project management responsibilities, so you must be motivated to operate and work in a self-managed fashion. With that said, we are huge believers in collaborative efforts, so you will have the support of the teams around you in many of the responsibilities you own, whether in the project proposal, execution, or closing phases.
Experiments: We believe there is no single “right” way to manage projects. Different clients, teams, and project scopes may necessitate a degree of creativity in defining our approach to managing a project. Project Management isn’t always a creative endeavor, but we love the idea of thoughtfully considering whether we need to adapt our ways to optimize for success, then putting it to the test.
