Job Description: Project Manager (contract to hire)
You didn’t just organize Halloween candy by color, size, and overall brand sentiment -- you convinced your friends to adopt your organizational schema. Today, you bring your big-picture thinking, OCD and gravitas to the Internet.
Kalamuna needs hands-on project manager to plan and manage an upcoming Drupal project for a university client. You’ll push the project from initial discovery to UX design to implementation, harnessing the universe’s chi flow to meet goals and deliver deliverables, on schedule, in scope, and on budget. You will analyze things, report things, and refine the flows of things. You’ll act as liaison between an account manager, a content strategist, UX designers, a UX engineer, a solutions architect, developers, QA, and site builders.

Higher education and/or nonprofit experience
Kalamuna is an Oakland, California-based agency that specializes in communications strategy, user experience design and development. We’re a bunch of activists, artists, mathematicians, punsters and history buffs who were more likely to major in the humanities than in computer stuff. We’re voracious learners who take things apart, play with them, and see what we can make. And these are the reasons we’re great at making the Internet.
Our clients embrace curiosity, play and provocation to solve our most important problems. They’re nonprofit execs using the web to instigate. They’re government workers using mobile for a cleaner environment. They’re entrepreneurs offering sustainable products online. These people also like to tinker, to critique, and change the way things are. We believe this restless, rabble-rousing mindset is what gets anything worth doing done. Let’s Play.
