CRM Project Manager

San Mateo, CA 

The PlayStation CRM team is looking for an experienced project manager who can help us take our customer communications to the next level by improving our operational efficiency. You will be a key part of the CRM team that is responsible for creating customer-centric email marketing programs to drive acquisition, engagement, and retention of PlayStation customers. As a team, we are focused on delivering a relevant and personalized experience to our community of gamers.

About the role

The CRM Project Manager will own our Global Transactional Email Program and work cross-functionally to ensure we deliver real-time, consumer-friendly messages. You will monitor CRM programs and projects from initiation to delivery and interface with internal and external partners. As the team’s first project manager, you will have an opportunity to build this function from the ground up. 

  • Manage Global Transactional Email Program. You will lead cross-functionally to streamline the planning, creation, execution and maintenance of transactional communications for PlayStation business worldwide. A strong relationship builder, you will also manage the relations between Business, Marketing, Legal and Product Management stakeholders in all of our business regions. Using your detective hat, you will problem solve and find solutions to ensure a smooth running Transactional Email Program.
  •  Develop CRM project plans and create learning library. We are an ambitious team that likes to test and learn. You will plan, organize, and lead our project roadmaps to ensure we meet our goals. This includes defining project scope, milestones and deadlines; as well as identifying resources, monitoring progress, and communicating statuses. And as we look to apply our test learnings to future campaigns, we will need a definitive resource on CRM best practices: past tests and results, case studies, and more.
  • Manage the execution of newly implemented mar-tech products. With a brand as strong as PlayStation, our media efforts play a huge role in the success of our marketing efforts. As we continue to integrate our marketing technology stack with our CRM database, you will help manage projects related to the execution of new marketing technologies and work across internal marketing, external agencies, and technology vendors.
  •  Organize CRM long-term test plans. What is the best way to use cross-channel communications along the customer journey? Perhaps we can figure it out together! You will brainstorm with us, identify hypothesis and test plans, and keep us on track through implementation and analysis.

What we are looking for:

  • 3+ years of PM experience and/or PM certification. Agile management is a plus
