Data & Society seeks a Communications Production Manager to support the Director of Communications by managing and refining the editorial process of dynamic new research products that address important issues in emerging technology.
Both a product and project management specialist, the CPM will unite our research and communications teams with regular, clear internal communications that enforce a rigorous pipeline of digital and print products. The CPM will create benchmarks, enforce deadlines, and manage daily contributor roles and tasks through key product stages including design, layout, proofing, and digital asset production. The CPM reports to the Director of Communications. The position is based out of our New York City office.
About the Communications Production Manager
The CPM will manage the entire lifecycle of our research publications, ensuring that project researchers and collaborators are informed and prepared to meet deadlines and deliver to standard. This mid-career specialist role will drive the process from individual experts, to internal research production staff, to external communications specialists who work to make this research more visible and public.
The CPM understands how to motivate intellectuals and specialists to produce on time, act as a deadline hawk, and effectively match project benchmarks to an overall public relations strategy. They thrive on busting complexity and untangling individual objectives. They are a power user of project management tools such as Asana, and have held one or more professional roles that involved shaping and managing publication workflows for multi-person collaborations. They are capable of managing proofreaders and providing editorial support at the graduate academic level, and know how to both delegate tasks, and verbally and visually present their needs and objectives to executive-level colleagues.
