Project Manager

Confidential Family Office

About The Job:

  • You’re someone with an impressive track record of project execution seeking an environment where you’re both challenged and rewarded.
  • Maybe you moved to DC to work for a consulting firm or contractor, but you’re jaded by the bureaucracy and office politics within a larger corporate structure.
  • Or, maybe you’ve managed many departments at a small company, but you see the limits of where you’re at and want to achieve more.
  • Whatever your background, you’re searching for more variety and autonomy in the projects you manage and seeking visionary leadership.
  • We’re a small, fast-charging, extremely high-performance single-family office.
  • We have an entrepreneurial mindset and strongly value problem-solving ability and emotional intelligence.
  • You would be working directly with a “unicorn” founder who had a successful exit and is now deploying personal capital on commercial real estate, private investments, and passion projects.
  • This role of Family Office Project Manager will be exceptionally varied—it’s one part executive assistant, one part research analyst, one part project manager, etc.—the list goes on.
  • Curiosity, creativity, and strong organizational abilities will serve you well in the role.
  • We demand a high level of excellence from each member of the team, and we expect you to have the same exacting standards.
  • While we’re serious about our work, we don’t take ourselves too seriously—and hope you don’t either!
  • Due to the nature of the role with a family office, a high level of trust is critical, so we will be very thorough regarding background checks, references, and assessments as a part of the hiring process.
  • In exchange, we encourage you to be thorough in your vetting of the role as well—when you submit your resume, please include an initial list of questions you have for us at the end of the document—this is a chance for us to be interviewed by you as well.

Responsibilities:

  • “Figuring it out”—researching, learning, and executing on projects
  • Managing others—vendors, contract employees, etc.
  • Keeping up with quickly shifting priorities
  • Maintaining highly organized notes, quotes, invoices, and records
  • Handling administrative tasks as they occasionally arise

Requirements:

  • Undergraduate degree with 5+ years of relevant work experience—or equivalent
  • Strong negotiating and vendor management skills
  • Exceptional communication and organizational skills
  • Ability to work at a lightning fast pace
  • Familiar with Google Suite
  • Trustworthy with track record of handling confidential information
  • Willing to sign an NDA, complete background/financial check, random drug tests, and behavioral/cognitive assessments
  • Work onsite five days a week in Downtown Washington, DC (1 block from Farragut West station)

Base salary: Starting at $125,000 a year
