Project Manager

“We are a team of creatives who guide passionate brands.” That is 970 Design’s mission statement, and we’re looking for someone who feels called to it to join our team as a contract project manager.

970 Design is a small startup Web and Advertising firm in the Vail Valley of Colorado. We are a tight team that work closely and passionately together on each project. Our projects range from local branding projects, to package design, marketing materials, and large scale international websites. 

At the young age of 5 years old, 970 Design has been serving a number of Vail’s most prestigious companies, as well as a number of impressive splash of clients from LA to NYC. With numerous award-winning designs, and multiple exciting projects in the works we continually outgrow our current capacity and now we are in need of someone who possesses powerful skills; works well both independently and on a team; drives deliverables forward and takes on ownership of projects; proactively overcomes roadblocks and drives toward deadlines; follows through aggressively; double and triple checks work obsessively; communicates articulately; holds in their minds the big picture of the company and the brand; and has a deep love of web and loves being around those who feel the same.

We are looking to expand our team to incorporate a genius Project Manager that lives and breathes efficiency. This job will consist of aiding in the smooth production of juggling multiple projects at once. Always thinking ahead to prep for outcomes, and how to best navigate the tricky waters of timelines, client responsiveness, and the inevitable bumps that come with working on dynamic web and marketing projects.
