We are a fully remote technology agency - composed of colleagues committed to transparency, efficiency, and helping. We approach our clients and colleagues with sincerity - and recognize that innovative tech solutions pair best with wholehearted teams. Great benefits, a 100% remote work environment, flexible schedules, and ongoing learning are part of BlueModus. But when you come to work here, you also become a part of an incredible team that we think separates us from other tech companies. We have created a culture that attracts bright, passionate, caring people who sincerely want to do their best for clients and each other.
What You Will Be Doing:
We prefer candidates who have worked in an agency environment managing multiple enterprise-level clients concurrently with competing priorities because you will manage 10 to 12 mid to large clients simultaneously. The ability to stay organized, consistently context switch, and keep everything on track and focused in a fast-paced environment is imperative. You must have experience with web development projects, mainly website builds and redesigns since you will determine and define business requirements, create stories, and prioritize backlogs for a technical team of architects, designers, developers, and QA. You must be a self-starter excited by creating action and order out of ambiguousness and someone who can build genuine, honest relationships with clients and be their champion while motivating the project team to rally around shared goals to create good client outcomes. As there is a sales component to this role, you must be a strategic consultant continually helping our clients build roadmaps 3-6-9 months ahead to help prioritize what comes next to drive toward client KPIs and to create a healthy backlog of work. Being comfortable with the uncomfortable is essential, as you will be the escalation point for the team and our clients. You must be able to successfully lead calls with energy, curiosity, and purpose and tactfully handle challenging conversations or navigate difficult situations with empathy and honesty. Finally, you must love doing all this in a fast-paced environment where priorities change often.
If you have experience as a Product Owner, Product Manager, Project Manager, Program Manager, Account Manager, Sales Engineer, Business Analyst, Scrum Master, or Digital Strategist - this may be the perfect role for you.
