Project Manager


We’re looking for a project manager who can step into a rapidly evolving role and perform with humility, empathy, and excellence.

As New Story enters our fifth year as an organization, we’re more committed than ever to developing the hardware, software, and processes that, once validated in our communities, will be shared to influence the global social housing sector.

From mobile apps to the world’s first 3D printed community, our projects span in complexity, size, and budgets. To do this well, we need a world-class project manager to help keep our internal teams on track and racing ahead to complete meaningful work.

About You

You’re process driven & detail oriented

You thrive in creating systems and processes to improve deliverables. More than just being organized, you understand the nuance in details and how tradeoffs of time and focus can drastically impact work.

You can lead teams

You should be comfortable leading meetings, asking questions, and getting your hands dirty with others even when you aren’t the specialist in the room.

You’re a self-starting learner

Starting has never been a problem for you and routinely you help others get moving on their ideas. We don’t expect you to onboard with perfect understanding of technical projects, but we do expect you to be a hungry learner.

You’re tenacious and humble

You have a very high standard of excellence in all that you do, and you’re obsessed with learning and growing.

You have a team of founders mindset

At New Story, we never use the word, “employee.” You’re a builder and owner with the mentality of a founder.

  • Manage workflow, budgets, and timelines for approximately 8-10 projects at a time across multiple teams.
  • Solve problems and remove obstacles for project success.
  • Vet & manage external vendors for necessary components of projects.
  • Develop project-based roadmaps and sprints to manage traffic for multiple projects at once.
  • Execute daily/weekly meetings with teams to keep a pulse on project success.
  • Communicate with key stakeholders on project progress.

Simply put: Enable exceptional results from the Tech & Brand teams.

The Must Haves
  • Demonstrated experience in process implementation & improvement
  • Proven track record of working well in a collaborative team setting
  • 3+ years of relevant professional work experience
Bonus Points
  • Experience managing or participating in projects from a software and/or brand perspective
