Kalamuna - Digital Project Manager

Drupal Camp Asheville 2021 Online Edition - July 8th-9th

What You'll Do

You didn’t just organize Halloween candy by color, size, and overall brand sentiment — you convinced your friends to adopt your organizational schema. Today, you bring your big-picture thinking, and talents to the Internet.

Kalamuna needs a hands-on project manager to lead and manage Drupal and WordPress projects, including retainer-based, on-going support and maintenance programs. You’ll set initial expectations and push the projects, no matter how big or small, from Discovery, to Design, right through to Implementation and post-launch – balancing schedule, scope, and budget. You’re the connector between and across our cross-functional teams, both internally and with our client partners.

We work within an agile framework to accommodate inevitable change. When snags come up along the way, you’ll be the point person to coordinate with our team to provide solutions or options. Then you will work with the client to determine the best path forward. Because of your efforts, our teams will thrive and our clients will get the outcomes they are looking for.

You’ll also collaborate with our project and account management team for staff and project planning across Kalamuna, making sure your projects’ needs are accounted for and balanced with other projects and internal needs to promote work-life balance and optimize for team member success.

Candidates for this full-time (32-40h/wk) remote position must reside in the US or Canada. If you’re a recruiter or agency, please don’t contact us.
