Website Design B&B

Who we are:
Design B&B is a design and brand consultancy headquartered in Chicago (but currently we’re working just about anywhere with an internet connection.) Fundamentally, we’re about helping brands discover and elevate their strengths so that their stories are heard. We’re a 20 person team of passionate designers whose work is backed by research, cognitive science, and a focus on the end user. We do it all — brand strategy, innovation, packaging, experience design, to name a few — but most of all, we’re problem solvers, the more challenging the better.

Who we need:
As our agency continues to grow, we’ve found a need for a new position unique to Design B&B. That’s where you come in, Program Manager Strategist! Yes, indeed, we are merging two disciplines into one spectacular leader. As a brand new position to Design B&B, it is important to us to foster our hard-won close relationships with clients, stream-line our current project manager processes, and contribute to elevating our approach to strategy.

This position will manage client communications on a select number of accounts while providing strategic input and leadership; lending a hand to, and often owning, the development of decks and reports for client presentations, and synthesizing client feedback and framing next steps. Our Program Manager Strategist should be the go-to person for scheduling both internal and external meetings, coordinating with production and agency partners to receive necessary assets and resources, and maintaining client budgets. And, finally, you’ll be responsible for coming up with a better job title!

Who we want:
A strategic thinker who can connect the dots and understand the underlying objectives and needs of a project.
A rockstar project manager with a self-starter attitude. You’re comfortable working under a deadline and in a fast paced environment.
Someone with 5+ years of agency experience – with a Bachelor’s degree in marketing, advertising, or a related field.
An effective communicator, critical thinker, and organized worker with an obsessive attention to detail and an excellent track record of leading a range of projects

This position is currently remote. Post-COVID, residency in Chicago is preferred, but negotiable.
