Smashing Boxes project managers aren’t merely taskers or go-betweens. PM’s are expected to take a proactive, hybrid role in projects, steering both clients and team members towards solutions that stay within timeline and budget constraints. Our Project management role is a mix of traditional waterfall project management, account management, and scrum master. Managing the interests of both internal and external stakeholders can be challenging, which is why we take a collaborative approach to client happiness. Project Managers work with key team members to ensure overall product vision is clear, they collaborate with UI and UX designers to execute that vision, and they guide developers through the build and ship phases using both waterfall and agile practices.
A day in the life…
Key daily tasks include managing production schedule and budget, creating agendas for internal and team meetings and providing recaps to keep action items clear. Managing scope and actively participating in problem-solving is a constant aspect of the agile process. Project Managers also create, maintain and prioritize user stories in a backlog, lead meetings, document project details, and always enforce Smashing Boxes process best practices.
