Studio Project Manager

Bridgeport WorldwideinBridgeport, CT

We are looking for a bright, highly organized individual with strong team and project management skills, who will keep us on track with our many projects throughout the year.

With your help, we intend to build a powerhouse content studio that tailors to the creative needs of the company.

You will report to the Managing Director, and work directly with the Creative Director on a daily basis to establish and grow the capacity for this new department to serve the content needs and the mission of the company.

B-W Covid 19 Hiring Status

Bridgeport Worldwide will be conducting remote interviews and hiring during this time. This is a full time, on-site position in Bridgeport, Connecticut. It is expected to start partially remotely. Due to the current Covid 19 situation, we'll work closely with you as we understand every person has unique circumstances.

Who we are and what we do

Bridgeport Worldwide is a small (~20 person) but growing company in the high-end North American design and construction sector. We import, market, help specify and sell high-performance building supplies from all over the world. We have customers from all segments in a market that is both long-established and in the midst of serious transformation.

Our success is contingent on our ability to educate anyone in the design/build universe, including our direct customers, on how to properly specify and integrate our product offering into their projects. Our business works with designers and builders to help them create beautiful environments for their clients. For us, it is just as important that everything we do to communicate with them or with each other reflects this same desire for beauty.

The Creative Services team is here to do just that. We are responsible for maintaining the look-and-feel (and sound!) of our brand, and that of our manufacturers. We embody the company's spirit, and work closely with various internal and external teams to create assets for digital and brand campaigns, and efficient tools for our sales teams.

Who you are and why we need you

You are the pivot to our door! At the center of it all, you act as a reliable, polite, and positive point of contact between the Creative Services and the rest of the company, our vendors around the world, and any outside talent. You keep track of projects and people with an iron fist in a velvet glove. You are graced with flexibility, diplomacy, and a great dose of humour to balance your much needed obsessive compulsion to keep us all organized and on schedule.
