Currently looking for:

Producer

Job Title: Producer
Reports To: Production Team Lead
Summary: From the point of contract conception, the Producer plays the most critical role of every project; being the tether that holds both external and internal teams together. As an external team leader, a Producer is the main point of contact for all their clients, making sure that there are always open and clear lines of communication. It’s through this communication that expectations are set and met, which lay the foundation for a successful project. Relationship is the backbone of PlainJoe Studios and a successful Producer isn’t afraid to pick up the phone to connect with their clients. Whether it’s updates on a project or checking up on an invoice, it’s the human element our clients appreciate most; allowing you to create trust and add a personal touch at the same time. As an internal team leader, a Producer champions collaboration and internal processes. Collaboration is the secret sauce of the studio. The Producer will work closely with Principals, Directors, and Strategists, pulling all of them in at the right time to promote divergent/creative thinking ensuring a successful project. Associate Producers will be the Producer’s right hand man (or woman); working closely together to coordinate all internal efforts. Holding the keys of the scope, schedule and budget, it is up to the Producer to make sure a project reaches the finish line within its respective parameters. This requires the Producer to be the PlainJoe advocate, understanding that at times it requires healthy push back on clients and internal teams when projects start to scope creep. The true mark of a great Producer is their ability to problem solve and make decisions. There may not always be a clear way or answer, but it’s the responsibility of the Producer to constantly be on the hunt to find one.
