Elkanodata is a global information design agency based in Barcelona. We transform complex information and data into insightful, innovative and attractive user experiences.
We partner with our clients to create high quality visual contents, combining design, animation and interactivity. We offer a wide array of specialized solutions: infographics, motion graphics, data visualization, interactives, dashboard, presentation design and much more.
Our clients are innovative companies, international organizations and industry leaders such as Spotify, the United Nations or NYU.
Our goal is to be amongst the top 3 global information design agencies by 2019, by offering the highest quality on the market in terms of project execution and client service. We are small but we are growing fast and want to grow even faster. We have our eyes set on the North American market.
Our agency is a great place to work. We work hard and we have fun. We like to surround ourselves with creative people who love what they do and have a passion for design, data and all things internet. We get stuff done whilst enjoying the ride.
We are looking for an experienced Project Manager who will connect our creative team and our clients, who will help us define processes to consistently deliver high quality projects, and define the strategy to build and grow Elkanodata’s client services unit.
As project manager you will provide support to the creative team and be responsible for client engagements as well.
You will be responsible for ensuring projects are delivered on time, within budget, and up to our quality expectations. This involves managing resources, keeping the internal teams on track, and managing client feedback and requests.
Once we have a new customer you will be their first point of contact inside the agency to help build a partnership with them. You will work with them to define projects, scope work and provide detailed costs breakdown, budgets and project timings.
You will champion best practices and constantly seek to improve our execution and production processes. We are fast but want to be even better and make sure we make the most of our resources and talent. You will define our project management and customer support standards.
