About the role
As a Build Manager you will work under a project manager for each courseware project assigned to you.

By ensuring that graphic designers and developers are working from a concise and complete to- do list and quality-checking every asset and screen they develop, you will help bring the web- based coursework to life.

• Quality-checking graphic and Flash assets after they are created to ensure adherence to the text and creative direction presented in the storyboard
• File and asset management, ensuring that all digital assets created are stored in the proper location and can be found with ease
• Facilitating handoff of storyboards and graphic assets to developers
• Following up on questions and answers from developers and designers to ensure there are no holdups in the production of a course
• Maintaining ownership of the daily course-production process while escalating questions and issues to your project manager when appropriate

We’re excited about you because you are:
• Detail oriented, thorough, and organized—perfectionism is welcome!
• Excellent writing skills: good grammar, spelling, and punctuation with the ability to spot a typo from a mile away
• Ability to write and communicate clear instructions and directions
• Ability to unwaveringly focus on sometimes-repetitive tasks
• Experience with deadline-driven work, and ability to manage to deadlines
• Proficient with Microsoft Word and Excel
• Comfortable with learning new software technologies and working with them hands on
• Experience working with remote team members
• A good sense of humor and a positive attitude
