Project Manager - Freelance/Consultant
Cambridge, MA

My client is a flourishing, privately owned consultancy that has the energetic vibe and smart people reminiscent of the dot-coms you may have started your career at - Razorfish, Scient, iXL, Viant, Molecular, etc. As such, you might see some familiar faces from these companies when you visit our offices! Business is great - we've been around for 5+ years, the company has been profitable for the last 3 years and revenue has grown 75% over the past three years! We plan to add 35 people to our team this year alone.

Culture-wise, this place: culture has a start up energy to it without the craziness or uncertainty, as they have a solid infrastructure, process/methodologies/best practices, and are on firm financial footing. The space is open to foster a friendly, collaborative environment and the decor is complemented by white boards, lots of white boards! They hire smart people who are passionate about their work. Their focus is the healthcare vertical (but it's not a bio/pharma marketing agency) - and their collective passion is improving America's healthcare system one project at a time.
