Project Mgmt/ScrumMaster Intern (Spring 2019)

BACKGROUND:
In 1998 we started our first website, PromGirl.com, with a simple premise: people should have access to the top special occasion dresses and they should be able to shop for them online.

Fast forward to 2018 and Occasion Brands has become the leading special occasion retailer online with three brands: PromGirl, Simply Dresses, and Kleinfeld Bridal Party. We are growing and have plans to introduce new special occasion stores online under the Occasion Brands umbrella. We also recently brought the PromGirl experience offline by opening our first store in 2018 (not to mention our Kleinfeld Bridal Party Showroom inside the Kleinfeld Bridal Salon in NYC!).

We are looking for a highly proactive, detail oriented Project Management Intern who is motivated to get things done to deadline. In this role, you will gain experience in project management, SCRUM, prioritization and critical problem solving.

MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Manage multiple projects: Help to prioritize the technology workload in order to ensure deadlines are met.
  • Organize tasks: In or between meetings, quickly capture tasks, to-dos, reminders, and ideas.
  • Assure quality of products: Assist in testing during development stages to ensure product meets functionality requirements.
  • Act as ScrumMaster: Learn to facilitate and participate in meetings in an agile development environment.
  • Administration: Update tasks, technology specs, and documentation to maintain clear communication and workflows between developers and other departments.

​​​​​​​DESIRED SKILLS/QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Tech-savvy with exceptional attention to detail; able to understand dependencies so that when X changes, it impacts Y and Z
  • Exceptional communicator able to work across departments to ensure targets and goals are being met
  • Resourceful with the ability to work independently with changing requirements
  • Experience working with MS Office applications (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) and/or Google docs and Google Calendar
  • Experience with Asana or similar project management software
  • Knowledge of Agile/Scrum is a plus

INTERNSHIP DETAILS:
TERM:  January 2019-May 2019 (start and end dates are flexible)
SCHEDULE:  15-18 hours per week
COMPENSATION:  College credit with a small travel stipend
