Project Manager - Product Design

Cinco believes in building a better world through better brands. Project Managers are an essential part of Cinco’s holistic brand design process. As a member of the Product team, you will partner with industrial design, engineering, and marketing teams to make considered product and brand experiences with global impact.

As a PM, you understand what is possible and what the best practices are for completing projects on time, on budget and with an exceptionally high level of creative and technical delivery. You maintain a balance between being empathetic to our design team’s needs while relentlessly meeting the objectives of our clients. Working alongside creative and account partners, you own resource management and have experience successfully bringing products to market. PMs at Cinco excel at being the hub of all project information – including performance, production, communication, and timeline.
