Do you have that “anything can be done” attitude? Does a love for problem-solving drive you? We’re looking for you if you are looking to set the world on fire with your enthusiasm, curiosity and good ol’ ability to keep stuff organized and on-track.

From client management, to project delivery, you know what it takes to deliver the best ideas to our clients and you aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty. In fact, that’s what you’d rather be doing—making things happen.

We need hungry, smart, fun, risk-takers who want to be a part of the solution and not just facilitate it. And who are excited about the opportunity to continue to help build our world-class agency servicing some of the biggest brands on the planet.

Responsibilities:

  • Responsible for the day-to-day management of key accounts 
  • Clearly communicate and manage expectations with clients and internal team members 
  • Ensure that all campaigns, programs and projects are being delivered according to expectations 
  • Manage internal and external standup meetings with internal teams including creative, UX, strategy, technology and clients on a regular basis to review progress and performance  
  • Build strong relationships with clients by acting as a trusted partner 
  • Be the subject-matter expert on your client’s business for our internal team. You’ll know the ins and outs of what makes their business tick, who their audience is, what their pain points are, what it means to “win” for them and you’ll have your own point of view on it 
  • Assist with project scoping, briefing, and scheduling 
  • Proactively manage project financials ensuring appropriate team allocation and agency compensation in accordance with approved scopes of work. 
  • Report on project status and initiatives to internal and external teams through online presentations, screen sharing, and in-person meetings 
  • Shape a new way of working for the agency of the future

Requirements:

  • A Senior Manager, Product Owner who may have been an unfulfilled Account Manager, an overachieving Project Manager or an underutilized strategist in your previous life. Your shoes are getting a little tight in your current gig and now it’s time for a change. 
     
  • Must be driven, motivated and a self-starter. The people who thrive here don’t look around and wonder “who can do this,” they just do it.  
  • Must communicate clearly and effectively. As the direct line between the client and the internal team, it’s your job to ensure goals are not just met but exceeded. 
     
  • Must be detail-oriented. You have the ability to keep a multi-functional team on schedule. 
     
  • If you have Scrum certification or Pharma/Healthcare experience, that’s a plus. 

So, if you have what it takes to work with the likes of Subway, Newman’s Own, Mondelez, and others, hit us up @ iwannawork@scrum50.com with a subject line of SR MANAGER PRODUCT OWNER.
