Program Manager

R/GA Ventures seeks experienced, motivated, and innovative Program Managers for "accelerator" style Venture Studio programs. 

The Program Manager (PM) is often the first face of the program, so is expected to represent the program for a variety of audiences, including founders, press, investors, community, sponsors, partners, and R/GA client executives. Internally, the PM keeps all operational elements of the program in line with the targeted strategic goals and keeps all R/GA stakeholders informed of developments of delegated work-streams. Under the direction of the Program Director, the PM implements projects to achieve the program’s milestones, while striving for the highest quality execution. 

During the program, the PM manages the logistics of scheduled events, traffics questions/concerns to the appropriate R/GA staff, and undertakes creative problem solving. The PM ensures that founders have the information and tools they need to effectively participate in the program, that the program venue is prepped to meet the day’s needs, and that all visitors have a productive and positive experience.
