About the business
Ooze Studios is an Australian creative & marketing agency working with global clients and a global team. We build industry-leading, objective focused digital products such as marketing campaigns, landing pages, websites, apps, lead magnets, etc. Our team is quickly expanding as our client base grows.
We work with some of Australia’s most successful small & medium businesses from a range of industries, check out our portfolio for some of our recent work.
We are a predominantly remote-working agency, with minimal in-person contact hours each week. We do have multiple forms of required communication and processes that enable us to work remotely, which must be adhered to by all team members.
 
We are committed to a work environment that is curious, innovative, diverse, thoughtful and gives our team members every opportunity to grow. We have a global team of 6:
  • 1 developer
  • 1 digital marketer
  • 1 content strategist & UX user testing expert
  • 1 designer
  • 1 copywriter
  • 1 accounts manager
 
It can be hard to connect with team members remotely so we introduced board gameplay. We play board games in a relaxed atmosphere to get to know one another better. 
Better connections => Greater working environment => Greater creativity => Best client work. 
 
About the role
With the growth of our company, a new opportunity has arisen within the team for a Project Manager. You will be managing, and working closely with, the Content Team & Dev Team to kick-off, manage and complete multiple app and website projects running simultaneously. 
 
A keen eye for UI design is essential with UX experience a bonus. Furthermore, you will be working closely with clients. You must have previous experience in handling client communications, translating what they want to the creative team, and also knowing when to push back as a request falls outside of scope. 
 
Our team is looking for someone who is an optimist with the ability to work through challenges and a team player who supports and understands the team’s needs. Attitude paired with skills is an absolute game-changer!
