At Eight Bit Studios, we specialize in mashing up User Experience, Design and Development in fun new ways. Our team is made up of hardworking and skilled Digital Project Managers, UX Strategists, Digital Product Designers, Developers, and QA Analysts who care about delivering great work that we can all take pride in. 

When you join Eight Bit, you will get a chance to collaborate with some of the nation’s most interesting business and product leaders. We take care to vet our client work so it aligns with our team and company goals. We're not talking about working with internal teams upon internal teams, we're talking about being on the ground floor, working with truly engaging people doing truly exciting things. 

OK, so where do you fit in, you project management maverick? 

Eight Bit Studios is looking for an organized and collaborative Digital Project Manager to join our team. You must be able to work on site in Chicago and you must actually love what you do. We’re looking for a team leader who is super adaptable and can collaborate closely with our user experience, product design, and development pros to support creation of incredible and inclusive digital products. 

As a Digital Project Manager, you will bring your history of successful execution of mobile and web project management to our collaborative environment. You will be able to quickly assess situations and make recommendations to help keep our processes rolling. You will create and maintain production schedules, report on budgets and timelines, and create client status reports to keep our partners in the loop and feeling good.  As the ultimate taskmaster, you will take detailed meeting notes, gather feedback and keep internal team communications flowing. You’ll be working across multiple projects, each with their own teams, so you’ll need solid organizational skills, the ability to prioritize, and a gut level understanding of when and how to say ‘no’ in order to manage various (and sometimes competing) needs and priorities. Through it all, you will keep a great communication channel open with all stakeholders, keep an eye on the project scope and feature prioritization, and be a champion of the empathy for the team and the end user.  

Are you still with us? Great, now here’s what you need for the role: 

  • 5+ years working in project management with agile methodologies in a mobile and web development environment - tech consultancy experience gets you brownie points

  • Demonstrated success working holistically and cross-functionally to deliver results on time and on budget, plus the foresight to call it out if either of those things are going off the rails 

  • A solid method of keeping up with new requests and maintenance asks, distilling asks to feature sets, and breaking them down into packets of work for your team 

  • Ability to understand business objectives and the needs of our clients and translate those needs into real solutions. You make sure clients know they are an essential part of the team and that you are the project expert for their feedback, questions, and troubleshooting

And here’s why we think working at Eight Bit is all that and a bag of chips:

We recognize that the key to our ability to deliver on great digital products is tied to creating an inclusive environment where people can do their best work. We care a great deal about balancing our culture and work/life stuff so our life-friendly employee benefits package includes generous vacation time, parental leave, and flexible work schedules along with super fun cultural activities, an open and supportive work environment, plus competitive compensation. 

So...what’s next? 

If you'd like to throw your hat in the ring to be our next great Digital Project Manager, please send an email our way at [email protected].

...And in the meantime check us out online. We have a real deal reputation for being great organizers, communicators and executors

We take equality seriously.
