DeanHouston+ has more than 30 years in B2B marketing, with four offices across the country – Cincinnati, Chicago, Los Angeles and Nashville. Our Cincinnati office is looking for a Marketing Project Manager with agency experience working on digital, print, content, media and video projects. You will oversee projects from beginning to end – keeping everybody on the same page and ensuring all parties have what they need to complete their tasks on time and within budget.

We have found great success with Marketing Project Managers who have the following characteristics:

Proactive – We don’t like being caught on our heels. We want somebody who will proactively move projects along because meeting deadlines is incredibly important in what we do. A proactive approach prevents communications falling through the cracks and delaying projects. You will often be the one leading the charge.

Organized – It’s a fast-paced industry and you’ll need to keep everything (and everyone) on the rails. Because you will be partly responsible for your clients’ costs with DeanHouston (managing statement of work, proposals, estimates, keeping projects on budget, etc.), organizational skills that can produce quick answers to clients’ questions is critical.

Adaptable – Things change. Being flexible is necessary in our business. While you’ll need to keep everybody focused on the end goal, you need to be able to adapt. There is no room for stubbornness if the original plan isn’t in the best interest of the client.

Multi-Tasker – You’ll always be juggling several projects at once (that’s part of the fun), so you’ll need to handle constant information from different clients and different projects – and still be organized and propel the team forward.

Job Duties:

Managing Budget and Projects – There can be a lot of moving parts during a project. Since you collaborate with several DeanHouston departments (creative, media, content, web development, etc.) on projects, you will help lead from beginning to end while keeping everything on budget and on time. Our ability to meet deadlines is one reason that clients love working with DeanHouston.

Communicate and Manage Internal Team/Resources – Considering how many people touch a project, constant (and clear) communication with everybody and properly managing resources is critical. You’ll schedule and manage team meetings throughout a project: it’s up to you that everybody is heading in the same direction. You’ll also work with the account team to understand the client’s business model and provide clear-cut project objectives to the greater team.

Vendor & Timeline Management – You’ll manage the vendor and internal resources in relation to the approved budgets and be flexible to make any changes when needed to keep budget and labor expenses aligned. You’ll need to clearly document and update timelines to keep everybody on the same page.

Quality Assurance – You may be the last person that sees a deliverable before it’s sent to the client. Because of this, you will lead the QA effort to make sure everything is error-free and aligned with the client’s and DeanHouston’s standards.

Digital Competency ­– You will be responsible for facilitating the progression of digital marketing projects and initiatives, working closely with DeanHouston’s web, content, and interactive development teams. You’ll assist with digital marketing and demand generation campaigns (marketing automation, search [SEO/SEM], email, social media, analytics reporting, etc.) and collaborate on content and digital creative projects (video, animations, AR/VR, multimedia, etc.).
