LuminFire is looking for a Project Coordinator to join our Minneapolis based team. This role is perfect for a person with multi-disciplinary knowledge of business, marketing, and project management. This role requires a combination of business acumen and strong communication skills. It also helps if you also really love technology.
This is a highly cross-functional role in which you’ll get to work closely with directors in marketing, project management, and technical client services.

You are a problem solver; an obstacle remover. You can see the big picture as well as what it takes to get there. Ideas about how to make the business better excites you, and you want to lean in and learn more. You recognize that while some tasks may be routine, the processes around them can be continually improved and are vital to business success. You are very detail-oriented and you like to take notes and make lists, and you love how satisfying it feels when you get to cross things off those lists!
You are intrinsically motivated to help others find solutions to their challenges to make their world better, because people matter to you. Because of this, you have good people skills, and feel comfortable communicating both face-to-face, via online video calls, and through written communication.
You enjoy working with people in a culture that is both friendly and fast paced (because technology is always advancing). You are a listener, a learner, and a leader who helps those around you be their very best.
