Job Description

SOON_ is looking for a Digital Project Manager to join our production team, to help us build great digital products and services. We’re looking for someone who is a proactive, methodical and organised with experience delivering digital products.

You should be comfortable working on complex, technical, projects and be flexible and adaptable to changing project requirements. You should be highly organised and able to maintain structure and clarity in all aspects of a project. The ideal candidate will have excellent communication skills and experience working with clients at all levels. In addition to project management responsibilities, this role will also include elements of client handling, as well as delivering workshops (during project initiation and discovery) and encouraging cross-disciplinary team collaboration (design critiques and pairing).

What you will be doing

  • Working independently to manage and deliver multiple projects.
  • Working collaboratively with our team to ensure projects are delivered on time and on budget.
  • Providing project governance utilising our project management tools, planning out projects and tracking progress.
  • Helping to deliver discovery processes and workshops (problem framing, identifying stakeholders and business requirements, personas and target audience and competitor research etc.) with the team and with our clients.
  • Communicating with our clients to keep them up to date, informed and happy.
  • Keeping the team organised and on track using an agile framework.
  • Maintaining clear and effective communication between all stakeholders.
  • Conducting meetings with senior stakeholders.


  • Significant experience in a similar role working as a Project Manager whether that be in a digital agency, creative company, digital start-up or product team.
  • An excellent communicator, comfortable building long term relationships with our clients.
  • Highly organised, process-driven and detail-oriented, capable of managing complex, fast-moving projects
  • You’ll need to know how to use Google Suite of tools (docs, sheets, slides) and you must be proficient with spreadsheets and competent with numbers and budgeting.
  • We use Linear but experience of any similar issue tracking tool (Jira, Asana, Trello etc) is required.
  • You'll need to know how to put together detailed project plans and Gantt charts.
  • It would be ideal if you've had any Scrum Master or Agile training (extra bonus points for any certification)

The mindset we are looking for

  • Love what you do; we really care about our clients and the work.
  • Love to learn; learning new things is what motivates all of us and is why we love the Web.
  • Be proactive; you get out what you put in.
  • Show talent; make us feel like we’ll never be that good.
  • Attention to detail; we worry, fret and polish till it’s right.

What you’ll get out of it

We’re a small company and a tight team - we work collaboratively, we share load, we have deep specialist experience but often blend roles. We are a business that embraces a learning culture. You don’t need experience in all of the technologies we use if you’re someone who loves to keep on learning and is passionate about new technologies.

We’re also a tech start-up   —  researching, prototyping and building our own products as part of our R&D process. You’ll be actively involved in this with opportunities to explore technologies you’re most interested in.

Remote working

We want our staff to be as comfortable as possible so they can be as productive as possible. As such we leave where you work up to you.

If you prefer to work fully remote, that’s fine. We’re ‘remote-by-default’ so all our systems and processes are 100% designed for this.

If you enjoy the company of other humans or it’s difficult for you to work from home, then we have lovely, 24-hour accessible, dedicated premises both in London Bridge and Nottingham.

In reality, most of us mix and match - a few days in the office, a few days at home. It’s up to you.

You must however have the right to work in the UK.

Our hiring process

  • Initial application – a short initial chat by phone/zoom to learn a bit more about each other.
  • Skills & Experience Interview – a more in depth interview to chat about your experience and skills.
  • Team Interviews – a short meeting with our founders and some of the wider members of the team such as engineers, designers. Let us know if there's anyone in particular at SOON_ that you would like to meet and we'll invite them along.
  • Decision – either an offer or we will come back to you with feedback.

The salary we've allocated to this role is 40k+ dependent on experience. Exact compensation may vary based on skills and experience.

The best way to find out more is to apply - we’re open to having a chat and answering any questions you may have.

  • Supporting access for a new generation - We are committed to providing better and more equal access to Tech Sector jobs and are proud to be National Apprenticeship Providers in collaboration with our Apprenticeship Training partner, Founders and Coders.
