MOO set out to shake up the world of print back in 2006. And we’ve come a long way since. Today we’re a 300 + strong team (we’re thinking of getting matching jackets) who create print and digital products for companies of all sizes – from Google and AirBnB to the guy who makes those amazing prints you found at a craft fair.
Our global HQ is in London, UK, while we also have premises in Dagenham. In the US, you’ll find us in Boston, MA, as well as Lincoln, RI and Denver, CO.
We’re making new and exciting things – and we could really do with your help.
Our Chief of Staff will oversee a small team of expert Project Managers to oversee our Portfolio Management and OKR processes, as well as complex projects that span the organisation - you will be part of this team.
MOO requires a Project Manager who is passionate about people and culture to lead our Work 2.0 Project - reimagining the Future of Work for MOO. This is an exciting and important strategic initiative for MOO and is sponsored by the CEO, who will be a key stakeholder.
The Project Manager will liaise with multiple workstream and work package leads to plan, organize and lead our governance forums and oversee all worksteams within the Work 2.0 Initiative.
Right now these responsibilities are split across multiple individuals. Going forwards we require a dedicated Project Manager to provide oversight of the overarching programme of work, ensuring dependencies, risks and issues are managed, and each workstream is completed successfully.
You will form part of the Work 2.0 Steering Team, along with the CEO, VP of Engineering and Head of People and will be responsible for:
- Managing all aspects of the intricate, multi-workstream, multi-year implementation of Work 2.0.
- You will work with the Workstream and Work Package leads to build a more detailed plan for the short-medium-long term milestones; operating at both a satellite view as well as jumping into more detailed and shorter-term activities if needed.
- Identify and manage dependencies across workstreams and other objectives, supporting the Steering Team - identifying and managing risks and issues.
- Interfacing with our Air Traffic function, producing appropriate reports, and tracking key results to share progress and status with the wider company.
- Work with our Change Management consultants to plan, prepare and facilitate various communications, events, and workshops.
- Support the wider project team - engaging with suppliers and vendors and completing assessments where required.
- Representing and engaging with senior stakeholders across the whole of MOO, building and maintaining strong relationships, and aligning cross-functional teams to goals.
- Working closely with other Project Managers and the Chief of Staff to identify and implement process improvements, tools & best practices to continuously improve ways of working

- Demonstrable experience of working across a whole company (outside of Technology),bringing complex initiatives to a conclusion
- Has experience of working on projects with people spread across multiple locations and timezones
- Strong stakeholder management skills and experience, including engaging with senior leadership
- Understanding of a variety of project and change delivery frameworks and a willingness to embrace whatever is appropriate in a growing company, that may not have all the process in place of a more established enterprise
- Experience in defining and implementing process improvements
- The skills and experience required are outlined below:
- You’re a great listener, able to use your empathy to help people solve problems

- What’s it like to work at MOO?
MOO’s the kind of workplace where you can really be yourself. Dye your hair purple. Hit the sofa with your laptop. Whatever helps you feel comfortable and happy at work. We want to help you grow in your career and set you up for success – while also recognising the importance of a healthy work/life balance.
That’s why we offer 25 days holiday rising by one day for each year here (for 5 years), a matched pension scheme, MOO’s share option scheme, and paid parental leave. We’ll offer you private healthcare, life insurance, a season ticket loan, subsidised gym membership and a cycle to work scheme. While most of us are currently working from home due to COVID-19 we can’t wait to get back into the office where we like to treat our employees to breakfast and fresh fruit every day, lunch on Fridays and all the ice cream you can eat (just watch for the brain freeze).
We are working hard to create a representative, inclusive and super-friendly team, because we know that different experiences, perspectives and backgrounds make for a better workplace. And that creates a better experience for our customers. MOO doesn’t discriminate on the basis of race, colour, religion or belief, gender, national origin, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or any other protected class.
