Our client, a global financial services firm, is looking for freelance help from an experienced and organized Project Manager, fully remote, for at least 4-6 weeks but likely ongoing, with the potential to convert to full-time.

The Project Manager will support the in-house creative agency on a mix of print and digital projects; there's more digital projects than print but digital work isn't complex.

They have roughly 10-15 projects at once and the projects can vary in size and scope. The PM will manage the day to day communication between different stakeholders in the business and the creative team on those projects. The PM will be responsible for creating project plans and timelines, based on existing templates and with some guidance.

Fully remote is fine but must be East Coast based and able to work the standard 9-5 or so workday, 40 hours/week.

They are using Lytho creative workflow right now but experience with any similar PM tool is fine.
