It's part of our mission to be a great place to work.
Taking care of our clients starts with providing a great place for our staff to work. We make time for staff to support one another and learn new things; it makes us better at what we do. We're currently searching for a Project Manager.
Giant Rabbit is looking for a Project Manager to help us build web sites and data systems for the good guys.
Our Project Managers work with our nonprofit clients to understand their mission and support it with technology. We architect, design, and build websites, and we work with clients to create and support data systems that power donations, communications, membership systems, and more.
A GR project manager acts as the primary point of contact for several active web and/or data projects as well as a portfolio of long-term support clients. Our project managers are compassionate problem-solvers and pragmatic strategists. They plan systems to address big organizational web and data needs while still keeping track of the details. They’re on the front lines of day-to-day support requests from clients in all stages of development--from pre-launch planning to bug fixes that crop up years after launch. They're not afraid to get their hands dirty with troubleshooting and hands-on testing, but they don't lose sight of the big picture.
We're looking for someone with a background in nonprofit administration, a background in technology services, or both. Maybe you've worked in the trenches of a nonprofit, with responsibility for your organization's data and/or web presence--that would help you see our work from our clients' perspective, and help you suggest solutions to their real-world problems based on your own experience. Maybe, on the other hand, you've worked at a tech firm in some capacity (or you've been an independent technology consultant), so you're familiar with web or data projects from the vendor side of things.
Giant Rabbit is a small, Berkeley-based web consultancy with progressive values. We value open communication, and we strive to foster internal leadership and professional growth among our staff. We offer a flexible working environment; we're all in the office on Mondays and Wednesdays, then staff are free to work from home the rest of the week if they prefer. We also offer fully paid health benefits, a firm commitment to work-life balance, and an office culture that's supportive of our staff's family lives and artistic pursuits.
We don't require a specific degree, and we don't have any "X years of Y" experience requirements. A successful candidate will, however, have some relevant experience with technology projects--for instance:
Working at a nonprofit and helping them through a web redesign,
Working with a CRM and communications tools in a development or membership department,
Running (and evaluating) a fundraising campaign,
Leading a push to automate some part of your organization's work with technology.
Alternatively, you might have experience on the vendor side of things, either as an independent consultant or part of a firm:
Managing a web redesign
Planning and/or performing a big data migration
Helping a client move to a new CRM or CMS
Working with support clients to keep a website fresh
Helping clients understand and take action based on their analytics
We work primarily with Drupal, CiviCRM, and Salesforce, so experience with those platforms is a plus, but it's not required as long as you've got equivalent experience with similar software. Finally, it’s important to have an ironclad attention to detail, great communication skills, and a calm and compassionate bedside manner.
We're interested in candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds, because different perspectives among our staff make us better at our work. To apply, please send a resume and a cover letter to email@example.com and let us know how you can help us do great work for our clients.
We're happy to field questions about this position; feel free to send those to firstname.lastname@example.org as well.
