Full-Time Project Manager

Net Impact – Posted by netimpact Oakland, California, United States

Job Description

About the Position

Net Impact is looking for a Project Manager who will bring our mission to life by producing professional, engaging programming. On a daily basis you’ll use your strong project management skills to execute a variety of programming, from events (virtual, for now) to programs about topics such as food access, climate, impact investing, and more. In an ever-evolving virtual world, you will lead cross-functional project teams that work in a variety of formats, from virtual advocacy campaigns to case study competitions to strategic partnerships to our current event series, Reimagining Capitalism.

The common thread across the projects you organize will be your enthusiasm for delivering high-quality experiences by using the tools of project management: managing schedules, internal teams, budgets, and external partners to develop tremendous, impactful opportunities for our passionate audience.

The ideal candidate loves turning good ideas into great experiences by leading every step of the project management process. The most successful candidates will bring curiosity and enthusiasm about new ways of connecting and educating young people in our new virtual-first world. A passion for working on a variety of social and environmental topics is a must.


Project management:

  • Manage budgets, schedules, project teams, and external clients to enable projects to reach their goals

Virtual programming production:

  • Manage the big picture and detail-oriented execution of all aspects of events, including operations, systems, data, evaluation, and marketing
  • Evaluate technological elements of tools and platforms, in collaboration with systems lead
  • Respond to interests and needs of partners, audiences, and internal stakeholders to frame content and learning goals of programming, in collaboration with content lead

Project team lead:

  • Collaborate with colleagues who are experts in marketing, systems, operations, and content to create high-quality, impactful programming
  • Use work plans, team meetings, and communication skills effectively to keep team focused on efforts that drive high-quality and efficient results
  • Possess a critical, detailed eye that you bring to production and planning

You may be a good fit if you are:

  • Organized and detail-oriented: You possess a critical, detailed eye that you bring to event production and project planning. Your colleagues know they can rely on you to approach your work systematically; you use tools to do your work in consistent ways so that you can be ready to build and scale when the time comes. Everything you produce is polished—meaning accurate (right content, no misspellings, grammatical errors, etc.) and precise (reflects nuances, captures subtleties, etc.) and “fits” the situation (should have our “look and feel” generally but can be casual when situation calls for it).
  • Virtual first: Learning about all things systems, platforms, and tech tools is your jam. You’re comfortable leading a cross-disciplinary team and asking questions to assess how to use tech tools to support your programming. For instance, you might get curious about which marketing campaigns are drawing people to one of your projects, so you’ll dig into the reports in Salesforce or Pardot to learn more so that you and the marketing lead can adjust your campaigns for greater success.
  • Committed to creating engaging user experiences: You are constantly thinking of ways to improve the user experience, whether online or in-person. Whether it’s about lowering barriers to entry for underrepresented groups, or creating an engagement funnel that enables people to deep their participation in our work, you are always looking for ways to better engage our members
  • Curious learner: You independently explore things that interest you, so you enter this role knowing your favorite platforms and digital programming tools. You’re a fast learner who is always exploring what’s new so of course you’re excited by working in the fast-changing, ambiguous space of virtual programming. Your curiosity also motivates you to stay current on the social impact topics that you care about most.
  • Strategic mindset: You believe that convening people well can change the world. You want to create more engaging, inclusive, and meaningful convenings now and in future hybrid events. You bring an intersectional perspective to how convenings can be part of big-picture strategies to achieve an organization’s mission, deepen engagement, and achieve other goals.


  • 3-5 years of experience managing projects, teams, strategic partnerships or other relevant experience. Experience with virtual programming or events is a plus
  • Experience developing engaging opportunities for audiences to learn and connect. This could be through content campaigns, engagement funnels, or virtual events.
  • Organized multi-tasker who is able to manage multiple projects and excel in a fast-paced environment, with proven track record of exceeding goals and reporting on performance and insights
  • Excellent communications and partnership skills

Hours: Full-time

Location: Currently remote due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our offices will remain closed until it is safe to resume regular operations, at which point the Project Manager will need to be present in Oakland, CA, USA. Net Impact continually assesses COVID risk and is currently remote through March 2021.

Compensation: The salary range for this position is $62,000 – $68,000 annually, depending on experience. Competitive benefits package available, including medical, vision and dental insurance, flexible vacation and more.
