Operations Director MediaMonks BA

Role & Responsibilities
- In this English + Spanish-speaking role, you’re responsible for the day-to-day operations of the second biggest MediaMonks office with the aim of securing its long-term goals.
- You’ll run the operations of a mid-size and multidisciplinary production monastery that covers creative, design, development and more.
- As a project manager of project manager’s, you’re challenged with coordinating the development and delivery of dozens of projects across dozens of international teams.
- Our super dedicated teams can be hopelessly selfish when it comes to finishing their projects, and so it’s your job to successfully manage our operations as a whole.
- Together with our Producers, Business Leads and PMs, you help to harmonize deadlines by assigning priorities across projects, keeping track of our responsibilities and making arrangements so that we meet every deadline with lethal precision.
- You coordinate the development of projects across offices to make sure great work is done between our BA office and other MediaMonks monasteries around the world.
- To make this process more smooth, you support new-project requests by scoping quoting projects as well as timing and planning production work.
- You’ll help our Producers with establishing what gets done and when (U <3 SOWs), making sure projects are feasible and profitable.
- In the end, you’re responsible for the timely delivery of all work coming out of our BA office.
