With a visionary approach toward discovering and nurturing musical talent, the Warner Records family of labels is currently home to an impressive generation of major artists.

The Digital Marketing Operations team is the spine of WR's overall digital marketing/fan engagement department. They are effective project managers, keeping everything moving smoothly and efficiently through the campaign pipeline. They are agile problem solvers, able to tackle the curveballs of music marketing. They can speak to clients, creatives, and internal stakeholders in terms they will understand, ensuring that project requirements are discovered, communicated, and met.

This critical role ensures that our project pipeline is running smoothly, that creatives and vendors are kept on spec and schedule, and that deliverables come back in a timely, high-quality, and cost-effective manner.

• Coordinate the workstreams of our various shared services (Interactive Design, Web/Mobile development, email/CRM), managing the creation of tangible assets for the Digital Marketing/Fan Engagement team in the form of social media skins/images, websites, email blasts, and more
• Prioritize and propel multiple projects forward at once, overseeing the day-to-day workflow of projects using tools like JIRA and Slack
• Work with Team and Department leads to green light/red light resource-intensive builds, rush jobs, and other critical deliverables to maintain a prioritized launch calendar.
• Coordinate with graphic designers, consultants, and operations team to ensure projects meet required specifications and are delivered on time
• QC and traffic all deliverables from first comp, through revisions, to final in a variety of digital formats
• Proactively communicate project status, timeline, and more with Fan Engagement team, clients, and other stakeholders
• Ensure content on artist websites and other digital channels is up-to-date and accurate

About you:
• Minimum of 2 years professional experience as project manager in digital marketing, web design/development, or similar field.
• Outstanding organizational and communication skills
• A problem-solving attitude to get it done, no matter the challenge
• The ability to excel in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment
• Strong background in project management (PMP or Agile certification is a plus)

It would be music to our ears if you also had:
