About

Lootok is a branding, consulting, and technology firm. We help companies develop and grow their risk management programs, so that they can respond to incidents with grace and without business disruption. From hurricanes to workplace violence to product recalls, Lootok is there to help.

We are seeking a senior technology project manager to join our small, but mighty, design and development team in SOHO (New York City). In this role, you will manage the full lifecycle of our SharePoint projects, from specification gathering to launch and maintenance.  We are not creating run-of-the-mill SharePoint sites, rather unique, usable, and impactful online experiences. 

You will report directly to the Chief Technology and Creative Officer. Composure and professionalism will be essential, since you will work with Fortune 100 clients and manage teams of internal and external resources.  We are looking for a detail-oriented, smart, and communicative teammate who understands the value of a phenomenal user experience and who knows the processes, planning, and resources needed to deliver such an experience. 

Lootok is a fun, growing company that believes in promoting a positive working environment and healthy employee lifestyles. We hire talented, down-to-earth people who thrive on doing great work. Divas and Divos need not apply.
