Job Description

Who are we? 

Thesis, a digital agency in Portland, OR. We’re hell-bent on humanizing the relationship between people and brands, which starts with our teams: real people making real work. Come as you are. Bring what you bring. We’ve been around for 20 years. In contrast to our former identity that reflected what we do, we chose the name Thesis as it better represents how we do it: a full-service agency believing our strength is in our approach—believing how the work we make is only as strong as the thought—and data—we put behind it. That sounds intense. But make no mistake, we also play real hard. All while respecting work-life boundaries.

The Job

Mid-level Project Manager–Focused on seasonal projects within Targeted Communications, including, but not limited to email, apps, and SMS: Tracks projects end-to-end and collaborates cross-functionally to ensure successful deployment across multiple functions. Manages run-of-show timelines and documentation, proactively raises risks to senior leadership, and informs digital strategy based on marketing objectives. 

You should care intensely about your work without conflating work ego with personal ego. While you’ll be working closely with clients, our agency’s integrated teams collaborate equally and share accountability, in failure and success alike.

Be prepared to let the best ideas rise to the top.
