Headquarters: Northwest Arkansas URL:

We need a people person who has a knack for helping others. Someone who is very detail-oriented, unflappable, hungry for new knowledge, nothing-falls-through-the-cracks, well-spoken and well-written - full to the brim with humility. Self-aware, ambitious, and willing to learn about themselves and grow in their career and as a person.

Here’s why: at Explainify, we make short videos that help businesses more clearly explain their products and services. We work with forward-thinking leaders at high-growth companies and Fortune 500s -- and their projects need to be managed with excellence. We’ve built an incredible place to work (think... work-life fit, being appreciated, not being micromanaged) where we each have a say in the company’s trajectory. We’re a small team of high performers that are constantly learning & getting better.

Pretty cool, huh?

We’re experiencing tremendous growth, with an incredibly Vivid Vision to be THE leader in our category.

The quick and dirty of the role: You’ll be responsible for co-managing up to 50 client video projects. As Project Manager, you’re the person who transitions projects from sales to production. Then you lead the client through the entire process, from you leading the first kickoff call to deliver their final video. This is not just traffic management, you’re responsible for the client’s Explainify Experience. You MUST be a fast learner and adaptable, able to make decisions quickly in a high pressure, fast-paced environment. Seriously, it’s fast-paced. You’ve gotta be able to handle the curveballs with grace.

You must be able to hold tons of info about multiple projects in your head (often 60 projects for 30 different clients are open simultaneously -- you certainly don't need it all memorized but need to be able to jump in and out of them with ease, and without getting overwhelmed).

Key responsibilities:

  1. Set and manage clear client expectations, maintaining a high level of client satisfaction. Push back graciously on clients as needed.
  2. Keep projects moving forward on-budget and on-time.
  3. Communicate with the Client on video in a friendly, expert voice and;
  4. Communicate with our extended Explainify Creative Network in a friendly, timely, and succinct manner.

What we expect:

  • Be a very quick learner.
  • Self-accountable commitment to excellence - whatever it takes to be great, not good. No micromanaging, get it done!
  • Must be kind, courteous, friendly with great communication while having a hard-working disposition.
  • You bring solutions to the table when problems and challenges come up.
  • Have a life-giving, positive attitude no matter what’s thrown your way.
  • You’re going to take ownership of the time you spend with us and truly make a difference.

Note: This job is North America based only. You must have previous work-from-home experience with a dedicated office.

Contract to start, but could easily move to full-time employment based on our growth plans.

40 hours/week at ~$3k/mo (...based on experience).
