Senior Project Manager

Senior Project Manager

O/M is a multidisciplinary studio specializing in product design. We work collaboratively and iteratively in small, independent teams to solve complex problems for companies of all sizes. As a design-led company, we offer end-to-end services to our clients. This includes everything from designing products from scratch to growing and expanding established products for some of the most innovative companies in the world.

We believe a diverse team is required to create products for a diverse world. As a studio whose mission is to improve people’s lives through design, we’re deeply invested in fostering broad representation across our team at O/M and ensuring that we have a supportive, growth-oriented environment that works for everyone.

We commit to working together each day in a way that reflects these core practices:

  • Bold. Be vocal. Take initiative. Have strong convictions, but hold them loosely.
  • Open-minded. New ideas are fragile; handle them with care.
  • Dependable. Do what you say you are going to do. People are counting on you.
  • Humble. Good work speaks for itself. And good feedback is a gift.
  • Practical. Think outside the box but work within it.
