Who we are:
We are a team of founders that devise pioneering solutions for designing and building people-oriented communities around the world. New Story is headquartered in San Francisco and we also have a team in Atlanta. Since we started about 4 years ago, we raised more than $ 20 million and have funded more than 2,000 homes in 16 communities around the world. Our journey has brought us through Y Combinator as one of Fast Company's most innovative companies in the world, and now to make the first 3D home printer ever designed to work where homes are most needed. We are fortunate to be supported by excellent partners and advisers.
An inviting workplace for everyone:
New Story is a company at the forefront of social impact and technology. We build homes for families all over the world that have the lowest income, without adequate accommodation. We do this with innovative technology that makes our work more effective and we share our technology, processes and lessons with others in the non-profit space, so that they can also scale up and grow. We know that we will only succeed if we have a team with a wide range of perspectives, beliefs and backgrounds. Our team grew up all over the world, from Turkey to Maine to Venezuela, and we believe in a diverse workplace. We encourage applicants to apply without taking into account race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability or genetics. We work hard to create a welcoming culture of shared values and radical frankness.

About the role:
As New Story enters our fifth year as an organization, we are more than ever committed to developing the hardware, software and processes that, once validated in our communities, will be shared to influence the global social housing sector.
From mobile apps to the world's first 3D-printed community, our projects include a lot of complexity, size and budgets. To do this well, we need a world-class project manager to keep our internal teams on schedule and to race to complete meaningful work.
You are very process-oriented: you thrive in creating systems and processes to improve the deliverables. Professionally and personally, you are always looking for the way to optimize your work.
You are focused on details: more than just being organized, you understand the nuance in details and how interactions between time and focus can have a drastic effect on the work.
You can lead teams: our project manager will work closely with our Tech & Brand teams to lead their projects. That is why you need to be comfortable when conducting meetings, asking questions and polluting your hands with others, even if you are not the specialist in space.
You are self-starting and independent: starting has never been a problem for you and routinely you help others to develop their ideas. Our project manager works independently across departments to keep our teams moving and ensure the success of projects.
You are a lifelong student: we do not expect you to be on board with a perfect understanding of technical projects, but we do expect you to be a hungry student. You are enthusiastic about new challenges and want to learn the ins and outs of our work to lead our teams well.
