Huge is seeking an Associate Program Director to join our Chicago team. We are willing to relocate top talent to that area.
Associate Program Directors are essential figures in delivering and managing complex, portfolio-level clients. They should have extensive experience leading and structuring multi-million dollar engagements with parallel work streams—spanning design, development, social engagements, media, and marketing. An Associate Program Director needs the ability to focus on goals and solutions both large and small. Working with a team of our incredibly talented Project Managers, the Associate Program Director becomes the focal point for tactical leadership while still keeping up-to-date on daily project activities. They must be prepared to meet deliverable requirements, assess change and risk management, and frequently oversee a number of hybrid client/Huge teams.
What we’d like to see:
- 8+ years related experience in a digital or software development organization
- 2+ years of interactive experience
- Experience in a client services organization, preferably on projects with top tier consulting firms or interactive agencies (including web, mobile, video, brand, and strategic consulting projects).
- An ability to manage long-term, multi-million dollar engagements with multiple project tracks and teams as well as a firm command of project management processes and methodologies.
- Strong understanding of web and application development and design lifecycle. We want someone with an intuitive understanding for how our work gets done.
- Strong knowledge of web development technologies, technology vendors, and third party offerings—you should always be on the lookout for new ways to push our work forward.
- An ability to manage and set client expectations. At the end of the day (or project), you make sure that everyone’s satisfied.
- An ability to mentor and manage your fellow employees. We want someone who can both lead by example and also take an active interest in fostering the talents of those working under them.
- Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience in a related field.
