Be a Brand-Led Business Builder!

We’re not just robotically moving projects from points a to b here, we’re shaping customer experience and brand impact to help companies drive their business vision. As a Senior Brand Project Manager at FINE, you can (and should) truly make big things happen, working alongside people as committed, passionate, and talented as you.

Core Values
At FINE, we are committed to our core values and strive to live them every day.

Be Human
People here are the real deal. You bring genuine intentions, unite by your actions, and stay humble in your greatness, open with your quirks, and honest in your flaws.

Be Awesome
You’re at the top of your craft and game. Whatever your skill and role, you’re a highly engaged, positive solutioneer. A leader, a doer, and an always improver.

Make Big Happen
You approach your work believing it has the power to impact our company, our clients, and even our world. All that you do is strategically motivated and aims for a world-class outcome.

The Role

At FINE, branding has moved far beyond slick logos, flashy sites, and clever campaigns. It’s a deep process of building value, based on values. It starts with the core reason a company exists, then permeates everything you do about it.

As a Senior Brand Project Manager, you’ll collaborate to define, track, and manage critical projects for FINE and our clients. From core brand vision and operations to all forms of brand expression online and off, your work will help companies become their best selves.

Your deep background in, and passion for, delivering complex, compelling brand-focused initiatives is key. You’ll bring a strong understanding of agency client and project management, and a habit of thinking 3 steps ahead on a project that only has 2 steps. In short, you can run multifaceted projects all the way through with a successful team, awesome deliverables, and a happy client.

Things You’ll Do

  • Manage day-to-day client communications, internal project team tasks and deliverables, schedules, and resourcing to ensure everyone remains in sync and performing their best.
  • Facilitate gathering and actioning internal/external feedback to all deliverables.
  • Work with senior staff to identify and negotiate business development opportunities.
  • Form and maintain strong ties with clients and internal teams.
  • Wrangle and own schedules, manage agendas and action items, and facilitate internal/external meetings.
  • Develop, maintain, and communicate clear account information, resources, documents, budgets, and briefs to support the team’s success in very fluid projects.
  • Prioritize tasks and understand interdependencies to ensure projects remain on track and within timelines and budgets.
  • Be a strategic solutioneer: understand client challenges and help clients reach their goals by offering and flexibly adjusting programs to best suit their needs.
  • Oversee activities and profitability of accounts that are on ongoing engagement retainers for integrated services.
  • Develop estimates and scopes of work, manage hourly billings and client payment status.

Traits and Experience

  • 6+ years of agency project and/or account management experience
  • Demonstrated ability to oversee projects for client brands that have high standards for design, concept, creative, and production value
  • A big plus: experience working with service- and experience-oriented client brands, such as hospitality and placemaking, that emphasize service standards, operations, and physical space design
  • Ability to deliver on multiple concurrent, and at times changing, priorities
  • Dogged attention to detail
  • Strong strategic and conceptual thinking
  • Excellent communication skills in both written and verbal form
  • Currently residing and authorized to work in the United States

FINE Reviews

“FINE offers the perfect balance of a humanity-first approach to business and envelope-pushing aspirations. It’s the harmony between the two that’s continually impressed me and inspired me to want to give back not just through my work ethic, but in my desire to help see the business thrive. Leadership consistently exemplifies a deep consideration and care for the team, especially in their rallying for self-advocacy and continued personal growth – which can certainly be advertised by any agency, but to actually follow through requires a real level of trust and commitment.“ -Mehran Azma, Associate Creative Director
