Position Details

Sr. Project Manager
Twin Cities Metro
Minneapolis or Remote, MN

We are seeking to add a Sr. Project Manager to our awesome project management team!


The Sr. Project Manager is responsible for moving work through the agency and keeping it on task, on time and in scope, from concept through completion. As the hub of communication, the Sr. PM will partner with virtually every department within Carmichael Lynch and Carmichael Lynch Relate. You'll be able to bring your full self and talents to the agency and will be a contributing factor to the agency's success.

Areas of Focus and Traits:

This is not a one-size-fits-all position so adaptability and flexibility are key. Being able to keep a lot of plates spinning simultaneously is essential to success in this role, and our ideal candidate knows that how work gets done is as important (or more) as getting the work done. You're bringing with you a solid set of skills yet you have the capacity to learn and grow. You love the energy that a fast-paced, creative environment provides.

  • Good Human. Above all, you're a good human. You treat yourself and others well and you're ethical, responsible and accountable – like us. You don't need babysitting but you also know when to ask for help. You speak up but you're also a good listener. You're confident but humble.
  • Facilitator. Your working team will look to you to facilitate the creation and execution of projects. Sometimes that means setting up calls or meetings and sometimes it means working with Accounting to open a job. You stay at least one step ahead of the game and you use your skills to guide the team through the process.
  • Integrated Skillset. You may be a Subject Matter Expert within a specific channel but you also have the ability to flex into other channels. We want to hear what you've got in your toolkit so we can match talent to task.
  • Strong Communicator. You're an excellent communicator both verbally and in writing. You say what needs to be said, clearly, concisely and respectfully.
  • Creative Problem Solver. You look for solutions and apply your skills creatively to solve them. You're willing to pitch in on any task, big or small. You're resourceful and innovative but you also know how to follow process – and maybe even know how to create a better one.
  • You have proven experience mentoring and training fellow project managers and other new or junior team members. You contribute to process improvements across your cross-functional teams and beyond.
