Job Information

Transperfect Translations International, Inc. Project Manager (Evening Shift) in NEW YORK, New York

TransPerfect Is More Than Just a Job… Our greatest asset is our people, and nothing is more important to us than ensuring that everyone knows that. Each of our 100+ offices has its own individual identity, and each also has its own unique rewards.

Who We Are: The TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS) electronic discovery division is responsible for managing the electronic & physical evidence relevant to legal matters originating from law firms and/or corporations who engage us directly. TLS can forensically collect source data (laptops, desktops, e-mail accounts, local servers, fileshares, message apps, mobile phones, etc), electronically process & standardize that data for searching, promote the “relevant” pool of documents to a review tool, establish review workflows (at times using data analytics), and help the customer determine what scope would be produced (or disclosed) to the opposing party in the matter.

TransPerfect Legal Solutions is a division part of the family of companies that form TransPerfect.

The TLS E-Discovery Project Management team is involved in all aspects of the matter. Project Managers are running searches in our processing environment, advising clients on complex data analytics workflows, conferring with government agencies on production specifications, and addressing problems as needed. Customer service is a cornerstone of success here. We work closely together as a tight knit team, pushing ego aside so that we can be agile in meeting our customers’ needs because no two days are alike here.

What You Will Be Doing: The Project Manager (Evening Shift) role will encompass supporting multiple PM teams on their cases during specified hours (1pm-9pm, 2pm-10pm, or 3pm-10pm EST on weekdays only - no weekend work). Responsibilities for this role are as follows:

Communication: helping to monitor client communications. We do not use a “ticketing system” when working with clients so it is up to us as a team to collectively manage requests as they arise in real-time. In addition, you will be communicating & coordinating tasks directly with several other internal departments (Digital Forensics, Data Processing, Hosting Support, etc.). Creative problem solving is a very important aspect of this position. Task Management: helping to ensure that deadlines are being monitored proactively and that clients are being given the perception that we are exceeding expectations. Because you will be working in shifts, it will be important to provide detailed pass-offs before signing off for the day. Learning & Creative Thinking: because no two days are alike here, as a PM you will be expected to be self-sufficient, think on your feet, and be solution-oriented. We do provide a full & engaging training curriculum (including group classes, 1 on 1 sessions, and a library of video documentation) to all members of the team which is administered by seasoned TLS Project Managers. Team Work: you will be in direct contact with the PM team in-person, over messaging apps, video-conferencing, or over e-mail to ensure that you have as many resources as possible at your fingertips. Quality Assurance: because of the complexity of the projects we handle, effective QC of our work product is absolutely necessary. We strive to creative an open environment where questions are encouraged so that we can address mistakes internally before they reach the client. That being said, we very much understand that human beings make mistakes! Who We Are Looking For: Must haves:

Minimum Bachelor’s Degree from a 4-year college or university; Business Administration, Computer Science, Mathematics majors are preferred but not mandatory 1-2 years experience working in the legal industry, e-discovery preferred Comfortable navigating basic MS Office applications (Excel, Word, PPT) Comfortable with learning new technology platforms Ability to work well under pressure and meet tight deadlines Excellent customer service & teamwork skills (restaurant & retail experience is great!) Must be a high-level problem solver and have high multi-tasking skills Where Your Career Is Going: At TransPerfect, we understand that plans can change. If after a few years you have established a reputation as a strong Project Manager and want to pursue an opportunity on another team (Consulting, Forensic Technology, Data Processing, etc) or in another location (domestically or internationally), we will absolutely work with you on it. All positions on our team offer opportunities for growth that can capitalize on your strengths & interests. As long as you are an employee in good standing and there is a business need for a new role, we can help you to make it happen!
