Jobs

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. Currently, we're looking for a Project Manager: 

Project Manager

We are a small company that works with some fantastic nonprofits. We help our clients think strategically, and we work with them to tell their story on the web and put their data to work. We design and build beautiful, human-centric websites. We also plan and implement technology to power their fundraising, outreach, membership systems, ecommerce, and reporting.

We take on projects of all sizes, from large-scale re-architecture, redesign, and website migration projects to microsites with tight timelines. We also work with data systems--we plan the project, help our clients select a platform, then we develop their new system, migrate their data, and provide long-term support and training.

Our project managers are pragmatic strategists and compassionate problem-solvers. They collaborate with our designers and developers to plan solutions, and then shepherd a slate of projects through design, implementation, launch, and support. 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.

The ideal candidate has some experience working at another tech or design consulting agency. The ability to make good estimates, communicate to clients about budget, and keep a project on track are all important. You'll need experience working with multiple projects at a time, making sure nothing gets forgotten or ignored, even when we're busy. You should have experience packaging up a project or a task for developers, testing it once it's done, and delivering it to the client. And of course all of this involves communications skills--from emails to calls to on-site meetings to documentation and content editing.

Experience working on web and/or data projects is also important. Data projects might include CRM implementation and migration, custom app development, fundraising support, data migrations, etc. We work a lot with Salesforce, as well as with CiviCRM and Insightly, but experience with any modern CRM is relevant. Some experience working with a CMS is important, too; we primarily use Drupal and WordPress, so direct experience with either of those would be a big plus. We don't expect you to be an expert in every system we work on--we do a lot of different things. We do expect you to have experience in some of them, however, so you've got a foundation to build on.

A passion for supporting nonprofits is a must; experience working with them is a plus.

We're a small, Berkeley-based web consultancy with progressive values. The organizations we serve fight for human rights, social justice, the environment, public health, safe and legal access to abortion, and LGBQT equality. They support cancer patients, defend online privacy, foster artistic communities, and raise money for grassroots organizations around the world.

Giant Rabbit offers a supportive and collaborative work environment; 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'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 hr@giantrabbit.com and let us know how you can help us do great work for our clients. At this time we're only considering candidates who are local to the SF Bay Area, because our in-person Berkeley office days on Mondays and Wednesday are important to our work.

We're happy to field questions about this position; feel free to send those to hr@giantrabbit.com as well.
