Project Manager, Nelson, New Zealand (Filled)

The role we are looking to fill

We have been going through a period of growth and are taking on increasingly large and complex design and development projects—mostly Shopify-related but also standalone web apps and design and branding.

In order to better manage these increasingly complex projects—giving us the best chance of a successful outcome—and helping us expand the value we add to clients and our role in their growth, we are looking to take on a project manager in Nelson, New Zealand.


The role is a varied one and will potentially cover the entire lifecycle of a project—from pre-sales conversations with prospective clients through scoping and quoting to execution, project management, delivery, and beyond.

The role involves liasing with and managing every aspect of the project from client interactions and expectations to team workload, tasks, deliverables, timelines and budgets.

Who we’re looking for

We are a small, creative, design-lead team. We’re looking for someone who is…

  1. Articulate
  2. Self-motivated and results-driven
  3. Friendly and outgoing—and people-oriented
  4. Pedantic about the details
  5. A thinker and problem-solver
  6. Comfortable working through murky project requirements and demystifying them into attainable goals!
  7. Up for challenges and diversity in their role
  8. Experienced managing local and remote teams
  9. Experienced in project management with at least a couple years in a similar role
  10. A wizard with Asana and Harvest
  11. Excited about technology and design
  12. Motivated to do meaningful work and make a difference
  13. Trustworthy, honest, and reliable
  14. Inspired by the role of project manager!

Ideal but not dealbreakers…

  1. UX/UI experience
  2. Shopify experience—either as a partner or expert or as a merchant
  3. An eye for design
  4. Understanding of API’s and how systems and apps can be inter-connected
  5. Experience in sales, team management, and/or product design and development
  6. Agency experience
  7. You enjoy keeping up with what’s happening at Shopify and in ecommerce and tech in general

Sound like you? We’d love to hear from you!
