Project Manager

Company Overview

We love turning competitors into champions.

We exist to grow B2B companies in revenue and maturity. The companies we work with want to win but are often underserved. Our goal is to help these owners and leadership teams move their companies forward by doing the things they could not do alone, giving them focus, confidence, and growth along the way.

Our values are the lifeblood of Syrup. They are at the center from which everything radiates, driving our team every single day.

  • Work with integrity – We do the right thing, no matter what
  • Advance with confidence – We welcome challenges and earn the outcome
  • Grow with purpose – We are curious and never satisfied

Our culture is built on growing in our faith, fitness, and fullness so we can all reach our full potential. We value our people and the lives they have outside of work.

We’re a team that shares a growth mindset. Our passion is to continuously improve as people, as a team, and of course, for the clients we serve.

We have a hybrid, flexible work environment – for us that means we work remotely, but come together in an office once per month. We round up as a team every morning to have some fun and start the day off strong. And most importantly, we actually enjoy working together.

We’ve worked hard to establish a team that’s battle-ready and will go to war for and with one another. That’s what you’d be joining.

THE ROLE

The ultimate organizer! The project manager at Syrup is responsible for the day-to-day management and operation of simultaneous brand and marketing projects.
