Web Strategy Project Manager
If you’re a web savvy collaborator who loves bringing new ideas to reality, on time, on budget, and with project management pizzazz, then we should talk.
On the Brand & Buzz (B&B) team at HubSpot, we’re very lucky to have a team of designers and developers who are constantly inventing on hubspot.com. They work with a team of conversion rate optimization (CRO) specialists and other marketers to build a web experience that brings the brand to life and and achieves measurable business goals. To make these great things happen, we need someone who can take each project - large and small - and manage the process and people working on it, from start to finish.
The Web Strategy Project Manager at HubSpot is responsible for prioritizing requests, understanding business requirements, and running web development projects from kickoff through delivery - overseeing concepting, strategy, UX design, visual design, copywriting, web development, localization, and quality assurance (QA) - and occasionally additional layers, as well.
The Web Strategy Project Manager reports to the Senior Project Manager under the Vice President of Brand & Buzz, working in close partnership with the Director of Web Strategy.
With strengths in website project management, the Web Strategy Project Manager also plays a meaningful role in the strategic development of hubspot.com. As a member of the larger Marketing Team, this role requires a high level of organization, sociability, creativity, resourcefulness, and marketing acumen. You don’t need coding skills, but an understanding of how a Content Management System (CMS) works will help.
Lastly, as part of the continuous evolution of the Project Management group, you’ll be expected to bring recommendations for how to grow the capabilities of the group, optimize project workflow, and review/recommend new software solutions.
- Manage multiple concurrent projects from beginning to end, including coordination of resources, meetings, and feedback
- Develop internal processes and integrate the use of best-in-breed tools for tracking all incoming and concurrent projects across the queue
- Partner with the HubSpot Localization team to develop the optimal website localization process, from defining workflows to evaluating localization software applications
- Establish the scope and timing of web projects based on strategic business priorities and important metrics
- Gather internal client partner requirements and specs to guide designers and developers and ensure the proper web analytic capabilities are implemented
- Set and communicate realistic deadlines to team members, and ensure all projects are on track, on time, and within budget
- Assure the quality of web pages by establishing and seeing through QA testing
- Build tight-knit relationships with partners across the organization, earning a reputation as website consultant and project facilitator
Requirements and Relevant Experience:
- At least 3-5 years of project management experience working with web designers and developers
- Excellent and effective communication skills across multiple teams and levels
- Ability to handle multiple priorities, projects, and people at once, many with converging deadlines
- Keen attention to detail and accuracy
- Inventive when solving problems and resourceful in finding answers when information is not readily available

- Hands on experience with translation management systems and services

Who Would Thrive:
- A natural organizer who enjoys tracking details and is passionate about the big picture
- A strategic thinker with a track record of exceeding business goals such as website conversion rates and web traffic
- A technology geek who will master project management software and look under the hood of the CMS
