Project Manager - Electric Putty

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 12/07/2019

Electric Putty is a friendly team of problem solving, multi-skilled digital experts who work closely together to create genuinely useful products for good causes.

Since 2004 we have been lucky to work with fantastic charities right across the sector, helping them to make a difference. We create everything from websites to web applications, including our own growing and successful SaaS product BrandStencil

We are a very family-friendly place and believe in a healthy and flexible work-life balance to make sure our jobs fit the rhythm of our lives. Our working culture is collaborative, iterative, autonomous, informal, pragmatic and curious.

Job Description:

We are looking for a positive and proactive Project Manager to deliver our BrandStencil projects. Ideally this is a full time role (37.5 hours) but we can be flexible to around 30 hours for the right person. 


The BrandStencil software enables employees in charities like RSPB, Mind and Alzheimer's Society to easily create on-brand posters, leaflets and stationery ready for print from customisable templates.


This is a fantastic opportunity to be integral to the development of the BrandStencil product and to shape your own role as the customer base continues to grow.


You will be in charge of:

  • Delivery of web editable BrandStencil templates for our clients to use in the platform.
  • Delivery of custom feature development jobs requested by clients
  • Assisting on internal projects to deliver new features to evolve and enhance the platform features
Skills Range:
  • Good understanding of a digital project life cycle and the concept of a SaaS product
  • Excellent problem solving skills with the ability to quickly understand and diagnose issues
  • Resourcing, scheduling and budgeting of digital projects
  • Exceptional time management with the ability to prioritise and manage multiple tasks concurrently against deadlines
  • Obsessively process driven (you're that person who makes a spreadsheet for their holiday)
  • A great communicator, both verbally and in writing
  • A great eye for design - you don’t need to be a designer but you’ll know when something doesn’t line up or the wrong font has been used.
  • Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite: Illustrator, Photoshop & InDesign is desired but not essential.
  • Knowledge of print production processes would be useful 
Person Specification:

To succeed in this role you will be full of energy and enthusiasm with plenty of ideas; we need someone with a genuine passion for what they do. You are already working in a digital production environment so have a good understanding of web or software development.


You have a level head, exceptional attention to detail and the ability to keep several plates spinning. As part of a small team you’ll have a pragmatic approach to your work. You’ll need to thrive on variety and be comfortable switching between tasks and projects.


You’ll also need excellent prioritisation and decision making skills. As you’ll be liaising directly with clients you’ll need the ability to communicate in a friendly and professional manner.


You’ll be expected to hit the ground running but you’ll have lots of support; we’re a friendly team and there’ll always be someone to ask.
