Project Manager

Hyperakt is looking for an awesome Project Manager to join our Brooklyn-based social impact design studio.

At Hyperakt, project managers are not only the operational backbone of the team, but they are creative partners and strategic thinkers. From a tactile level, project managers are the key point person for both clients and the internal team. They are responsible for building project schedules, keeping projects on budget, communicating effectively with clients, and attending all meetings from kickoff to launch. Internally, project managers are creative and contribute to design and strategy thinking. They are emotionally intelligent and attuned team dynamics. Project managers hold the tricky task of balancing the allegiance of their team with client satisfaction, not compromising too much on either’s vision.

We are looking for someone who is well-spoken, thoughtful, and efficient; someone who is adaptable, empathetic, and timely. They should thrive in creative spaces and value good design and smart thinking. They are open to learning new workflows and always looking to improve our best practices. They will have the autonomy to lead projects on their own and should be comfortable asking for help when they need it. They are excel enthusiasts and master planners, while at the same time, exuding calmness and stability.

Ideally, we are looking for project managers with at least one year of explicit project management experience. If you’re ready for the challenge, keep reading!

About Hyperakt

Hyperakt is a social impact design agency based in Brooklyn, New York that builds brand identities and digital experiences for leading social impact organizations. We design with people, for people, to tell stories about injustice, hope, and everything in between.

We are a small team of passionate designers, strategists, producers, developers, and all-round storytellers. We love Monday morning bagels, team lunches, cracking open a beer at the end of the day, going bowling, and exploring the city’s cultural institutions. We come from diverse backgrounds, walks of life, multiple continents, and are excited to welcome another Hyperaktivist into the fold.
