CreativeFeed is seeking a smart, strategic, tireless producer to oversee product development of a vanguard digital media product. You will be working with a senior team of hands-on Directors of Strategy, Creative, Technology and Data -- as well as their counterparts on the digital publisher side -- to define, organize and drive the development and launch of a digital news product. You will be responsible for maintaining communication between key stakeholders, outside resources and internal client participants; prepping, organizing and documenting brain storming sessions; budgeting, scheduling and managing multiple simultaneous project phases.

You must live a digital life, know of emerging trends in digital consumer products and be facile with digital marketing analytics tools. It is key that you are effective at managing up: seeing problem areas -- functional, technical, experiential and political, before they arrive and orchestrating solutions for the stakeholders to review. A big plus is some experience working on the client-side, in a large matrix organization.


Requirements:

• Bachelor’s Degree in a related field.

• 3-5 years experience in project management.

• Experience leading websites or mobile app designs.

• Extensive knowledge of news media and how it is digested.

• Comfortable with tech, in general, and acutely aware of leading Social Media tech and analytics tech.

• Organized and detail-oriented

• Able to handle and meet many deadlines.

• Ability to think strategically and manage multiple facets of intensive projects in a fast-paced environment.

• Exceptional organizational skills with an ability to solve problems quickly and efficiently.

• Driven and able to provide thought leadership for many different departments in a large company.

• Ability to travel
