Job Description

Driven by Curiosity.

At Vistaprint, we believe that everything we do has a lasting impact on our customers and on each other. It begins and ends with a passion for helping our customers succeed. To give them our best, we empower our team with the autonomy they need to make smarter decisions and pursue higher value. We thrive on exploration, collaboration, and helping every customer grow their business beyond imagination. Fueled by technology and innovationwe are so much more than business cards.

About Our Team

Vistaprint is looking for an experienced and agile-minded Project Manager (PM) to work within its Creative Operations organization. In this role, you will meaningfully contribute to aligning the teams, resources and workflows necessary to provide creative assets for high-volume marketing campaigns. You are comfortable challenging assumptions, experimenting with processes in the spirit of continuous improvement, and being highly collaborative to achieve success in a fast-paced environment.

 

What You Will Do:

This is not your typical PM role! As the entire Marketing organization has adopted Agile methodologies over the past several years, the role of the PM is not the typical “deadline chaser/meeting organizer”. Instead, you will be an essential connection between the Marketing and Creative teams, evolving the ways that the teams work together, with roles and responsibilities similar to a SCRUM master. Additionally, the PM will work as an unbiased advocate for project partners, supporting the team so that all creative projects are delivered on time and meet agreed upon goals.

As part of the Creative Operations team, your primary focus will be to manage the flow of creative project requests throughout the Creative organization. You have a highly collaborative mindset and positive approach to working with the Marketing and Creative teams to deliver successful campaigns every day. Building strong relationships throughout the organization and becoming a trusted partner will be keys to your ongoing success.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Manage the creative workflows to support Vistaprint’s marketing channels (such as email, print, etc.).
  • Focus on continuous improvement by keeping team focused on “How they work”.
  • Ensure that team members are aware of their Value Stream (to the Customer) and support the team in identifying opportunities to experiment and improve.
  • Partner with other Project Managers to ensure campaign marketing campaigns and creative deliverables are aligned across multiple marketing channels (Email, Site, Online Display, Print, etc.).
  • Ensure appropriate prioritization of work is taking place and that the team is focused on the highest priority projects.
  • Encourage face-to-face collaboration and co-creation; help teams collaborate by proposing tools and methods.
  • Identify and work with teams to help remove impediments.
  • Provide an unbiased viewpoint for best practices, keeping “value to the customer” top of mind for projects where marketing, creative, product owners, and many departments are involved.

You Have:

  • BS/BA in Marketing, Business, Communications or related field.
  • 3 to 5 years of project management within a creative services organization (either as part of an internal or external creative agency or within a marketing department) is strongly desired.
  • Experience working Agile principles and methodologies.
  • Basic knowledge of creative design and localization workflows.
  • Experience with high volume project workload with quick turnaround.
  • Team-player mindset who can easily adapt to an ever-changing work environment

What's In It for You:

  • Work in a highly collaborativeself-organizing team + the ability to decide how your team works.
  • Competitive salary + comprehensive benefits
  • Flexible working hours with paid time off
  • Continuous development opportunities such as onsite training, meetups, and conferences
  • Onsite game room (foosball, ping pong, xbox, pinball)
  • Free food, drinks, and fresh organic fruit
  • And more!
