Web Project Manager, Part Time

Sound Web Solutions is a boutique web design studio based in Palmer, Alaska, that specializes in building beautiful custom websites, empowering clients to manage their own sites and providing customer service from the heart.

We are looking for someone to keep our projects and support running silky smooth and ensure that our customers feel supported. You will be the right-hand man/woman for our team leader, working closely together to learn and optimize processes and ensuring they are carried out. You will be the heart of communication and time management for our team, so your communication skills must be business level professional and your time management skills must be of the built-in, born-to-run-like-clockwork variety.

Savviness with technology is required. You must be willing to learn the technical concepts of web design so that you can communicate effectively.  We will provide training and support, as needed. If you get frustrated when trying new software or your smartphone operating system has a major upgrade, then this is not the job for you.
