Website Project Manager Job Opportunity
ShiftWeb is a boutique, woman-owned web design and SEO company based in Atlanta, GA. We are looking for a local, part-time Website Project Manager rockstar to help with managing various web design and marketing projects. ShiftWeb’s mission is to help small businesses Do Better Online™. We want to make a positive impact and help small businesses thrive.
Created by Sinoun in February 2011, ShiftWeb continues to grow every year and now we’re looking for a part time Website Project Manager to join our team and support the CEO. Please check out the About page and if you connect with ShiftWeb’s mission, voice, and style – please apply!
This is a part-time opportunity to begin. We would like to start with you as a 1099 contractor. After 3-6 months, there may be an option to transition into a full-time role. In other words, we are looking for a long-term rockstar who will work closely with the CEO in taking ShiftWeb to the next level. The future is bright and we are excited to find the right person to join the team!
We will begin with Monday-Thursday (4 days a week) at 5 hours a day. Your schedule can be flexible, but we expect that you will be available to handle requests in a timely manner.
While this is a remote position, you are required to meet once a week with the CEO at our co-working office in O4W. You also have the option to work at our office anytime.
Pay is $25-35/hour, commensurate with experience, at 20 hours a week.
The role of our Website Project Manager:
- Help manage and maintain various WordPress websites (using Elementor)
- Be able to make simple requested updates to existing websites (content revisions, new page creation, etc.)
- Work directly with clients, designers, developers, and server admin to delegate, solve technical problems, provide customer support, and assist in project development
- Have a good eye for design. Make sound judgements/decisions and then communicate it to the team.
- Work on various, simple website administrative tasks, such as managing updates, adding sites to Google Analytics, Google Search Console, etc.
- Assist with various SEO tasks and manage SEO projects
WordPress + Elementor:
While we don’t require you to be a web designer or web developer, having some experience with WordPress is definitely a must. We live and breathe WordPress! Experience with Elementor is not required, but is a huge plus. Do you have HTML or CSS experience? While this is not required, it’s also a plus! We will train the right person if needed.
You don’t need to be a Black Belt Six Sigma, but rather someone who can simply manage multiple web projects using our project management software. If you are highly organized and detail oriented, that’s awesome! We are looking for someone who can follow and/or improve current systems in place.
You must be an excellent communicator, in both written and oral form. This includes proficiency in spelling, grammar, and punctuation. You will be working directly with clients, designers, and developers to delegate, solve technical problems, provide customer support, and assist in project development. While most communication is through email, you will occasionally speak to clients on the phone or on Zoom.
Affinity for Marketing & Technology:
We’re looking for someone who is tech-savvy and will not be intimidated by learning new technology. Have you ever used MailChimp? Canva? cPanel? Do you have any experience with SEO? While experience with any of these is a huge plus, it is not required because we are willing to train!
Good Eye For Design:
Having good taste in design is essential. After all, we are a web design company and our goal is to add more beauty to the world wide web. You don’t have to be a web designer or even be proficient in Photoshop, but you should be able to make sound design judgements and communicate it accordingly to team members.
Efficient & Organized:
Is organization your thing? Great! Being organized will allow you to work more efficiently and get more done.
As a project manager, you’ll have to view the work of the team from time to time so we can present excellence to clients. Staying sharp and being thorough with projects is must. If you are reading this and plan to apply, please tell me your favorite food in the last text box in the application. 🙂
Being proactive means thinking about the future, planning, and preparing for what lies ahead. Rather than wait for someone to tell you exactly what is needed, you anticipate the expected and take action.
Eager To Learn & Grow:
If you are someone that loves to learn and you see the importance of embracing opportunities for growth, you’ll fit right in. The world of web design and marketing is always changing, so we have to continue to evolve with the industry and keep an open mind.
Education: Bachelor’s degree preferred, but not required
Personality: Curious, committed, trustworthy, can-do attitude, takes initiative, passionate, collaborative, creative, values self-improvement
Experience: 2+ years with WordPress or 2+ years as an admin/marketing assistant
Certifications: APA (Awesome Person Award)*

*We made this up, but if you’re self-proclaimed in awesomeness, we would love to hear from you.
