DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILTIES:
The Project Manager's main role is to manage the full life-cycle of specific interactive projects. The Project Manager owns the vision of each project and is ultimately responsible for project success. The Project Manager works very closely with the Account Manager on the status of projects that apply to that account. The Project manager is the direct liason to the tactical project teams from Information Architecture to Development. The Project Manager still has contact with the client on a regular basis but the discussion will revolve around specific projects rather than the account as a whole. The following are the key items the Project Manager is responsible for on a daily basis.

Create Detailed Project Plans & Timeline – All project managers are required to create a detailed project plan for every project they are assigned to. The PM works with the account manager and internal team to identify all business needs
Create, Track & Manage Project Budget – The Project Manager is responsible for budgeting and managing multiple technical teams within budget and schedule.
Gather and Organize Assets from Client – The project manager needs to gather assets from the clients and sub-contractors and organize these assets for development. He/she suggests alternative technical solutions to meet client requirements more efficiently, and/or with greater reusability, and/or longer life.
Coordinate and manage outside services/vendors – It is the responsibility of the Project Manager to gather quotes for estimation of outside services and then to manage the work flow of these outside vendors.
Assist in QA efforts for assigned projects – The project manager is responsible for testing the project in all browsers including IE6, IE7, Safari, FF2, and FF3. The PM manages, evaluates and responds to change requests, bugs, etc.

Here are more details:

  • Assess technical risks, assist with technical problem solving,
  • Communicates clearly to both technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Anticipate clients needs and proposes alternative technical solutions.
  • Possess a knowledge base of each client's business, systems and objectives.
  • Understand browser / client specific compatibility issues
  • Manages day-to-day operational aspects of a project, its team, scope, budget, timelines, etc.
  • Motivate teams of cross-functional disciplines (strategy, design and development) to achieve the desired project goal
