We’re looking for a Project Manager!
verynice launched in 2008 with a mission to become known as the most generous design studio in the world. We are comprised of a small team in Los Angeles, along with a network of volunteers and contractors across the globe. Working at verynice challenges you to be an entrepreneurial thinker, have a lot of fun, and make impact happen. When we aren’t working with game-changing clients, you can find us wandering the streets of Downtown LA in search of the best taco, volunteering for a local non-profit, or mingling with our cool neighbors at WeWork. The Project Manager is the glue that pieces it all together. You will work with our core staff of ~5, as well as our network of 700+ professionals to make things happen! More information about the role is available below.
The Project Manager at verynice reports directly to the Managing Director and Studio Manager in order to assist in the coordination and management of projects, and to lead select administrative tasks such as project scheduling, outsourcing, and account management. This is a full-time position, based in verynice's Downtown Los Angeles headquarters.

Manage client expectations and mitigate project risk by openly communicating project status, task prioritization and project deadlines with internal and external teams.
Ensure that project deliverables are of the highest quality.
Ensure deliverables are on-time or early, budgets are being met, and client satisfaction is high.
Collaborate with the Managing Director to flag any additional opportunities for engagement and collaboration beyond the initial anticipated scope of work.
Assist the Managing Director in business development efforts, including lead generation and proposal writing.

Must be detail-oriented and an excellent communicator. Great presentation skills are necessary. Must be a quick thinker, and have a willingness to develop strong friendships with our amazing clients.
