Founded in 2021, Sharp Pen Media has achieved impressive growth, with over a dozen clients and $1M in revenue within two years.

Sharp Pen Media is an ambitious and fast-growing agency with a growing roster of clients and new projects coming aboard each month. As a project manager, you will be an essential part of the team, playing a crucial role in helping them to continue their expansion and maintain the high standards of quality that clients have come to expect. Your input and expertise will be highly valued, and you will have the opportunity to make a significant impact on the continued growth and success at the company.

The primary responsibilities in this role will be to:

1️⃣Develop and manage a project system that produces happy clients and minimises churn.

2️⃣Accelerate fulfilment by proactively identifying and resolving roadblocks.

The company will provide comprehensive onboarding materials to teach you about each client, how to manage deliverables, and other key aspects of the job. Training will be a combination of conversations with the team and standard operating procedure (SOP) documents concentrated in the first month or two of your employment.

You will start by taking over deliverable management for a few accounts, and gradually take on more responsibility until you are managing all clients' projects.
