An educational technology company that partners with top colleges and universities to bring their degree programs online is looking to engage a marketing or creative services professional with specific experience and a sincere interest in resource planning and project management, in an ongoing work-from-home, full-time marketing and creative services project management position. The employer, our client, would like to begin someone in the role right away. 

This is a full-time, temporary assignment with a mid-April 2024 kick-off and an expected duration of four months. We are ideally looking to talk with applicants who would like to work 40 hours/week remotely. Please apply for this role if you have excellent, relevant credentials and are interested in a mid-term, full-time temporary engagement.   

The individual in this role must be proactive and have the ability to keep things moving under pressure and on tight deadlines. This position steps-in and helps to project manage creative assets by reallocating resources, adjusting goals or requirements or assigning new people to the project. The Project Manager should also be able to motivate internal clients to adopt and adhere to project management best practices. The role requires keen attention to detail, organizational skills, adaptability, and sometimes a diplomatic touch. 

The individual in this role manages brand campaigns in collaboration with channel owners (email, social media, website), creative teams (including agencies), and marketing leadership. They will oversee the full campaign lifecycle, including gathering and aligning business objectives with campaign goals, planning brainstorm kickoffs, defining a calendar, project managing asset production and distribution, and reporting on success.

Brainstorm Creative Resources has supported the client organization since 2016. We can share the organization name, the hiring manager's credentials, information about our work history with the organization and examples of the types of products that might be produced in this role, with the most well qualified applicants.

⦁    Soft skills: Able to take initiative, proactive problem solver, strong attention to detail, strong communication skills, able to juggle multiple things at once.
This is a fully remote position. The employer is headquartered in Maryland, but you will not need to visit their offices at any time. 
Please apply only if you can work during typical east coast business hours. This is essential. For this scope of work we are not interested in receiving inquiries from otherwise well qualified applicants who already have full-time, dayside commitments and are only looking for evening/weekend work. Here is a summary of logistical considerations discussed elsewhere in our job description: 
(1) must be able to work 40 hours/week;
(2) entirely during typical east coast business hours;
(3) from the remote location of your choosing; 
(4) ongoing for at least the next 4 months.

Brainstorm Creative Resources strives to pay competitively and we ask our employer clients to help us make it possible to do so. For this scope of work we are suggesting a broad pay rate range of $40/hour to $50/hour. For proper framing it is worth noting that this hourly rate range, when annualized, offers income equivalent to salaries in the range of $80K to $100K. Earlier career professionals should expect potential offers to be at or close to the bottom of our advertised range. Highly experienced creative services project managers can expect that we will make a strong case to the employer, to pay at the top of the range. We have helped this employer and others engage and hire many project managers at or below $50/hour during the last two years. 

The actual rate offered will be commensurate with your experience and will largely be based on the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your portfolio, your interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and/or our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.
