Now Hiring: Project Coordinator / Dynamic Jack-Of-All-Trades

We’re hiring a dynamic project coordinator to help us create amazing, custom innovative educational software for K-12 clients.

We are looking for a Chicago-based freelance project coordinator / jack-of-all-trades to work part-time coordinating day-to-day administration of several design projects. Your primary responsibility will be keeping our projects on track and humming smoothly.

Inquirium is a nimble, three-person, company celebrating our 12th anniversary successfully designing & developing custom educational software and web applications for K-12, museums, zoos, and other non-profits.

Here’s who we’re looking for:

You are an independent self-starter with unsurpassable communication and organization skills, in both face-to-face and remote settings. You are completely fluent and happy using online collaboration tools with remote teams, have an eye for details, and don’t need a lot of hand holding to get the job done. You are easy to work with and have a sense of humor.

If you were working for us, here are some of the things you would have done last month:

  • Participated in design meetings for 6 different client products that promote innovative learning and teaching in K-12 classrooms
  • Contributed to a weekly call discussing the redesign of our product website
  • Documented several project planning meetings
  • Helped write and copy edit company blog posts
  • Maintained a Basecamp record of meeting summaries, action items, and project resources
  • Organized an internal Dropbox of design documents
  • Triaged incoming client feature requests & curated feature backlogs in Trello

Required skills:

  • A willingness and ability to be a jack of all trades, wear many hats, learn new skills, and do whatever needs to be done
  • Experience with software design projects (familiarity with Agile design & development practices is a plus)
  • Strong writing, copy-editing & word-processing skills; Able to polish and format professional-looking deliverables


Applicants must be based in Chicago and willing to work at our offices near Halsted & North Ave. At the same time, the ability to work remotely with staff not based in Chicago is a must.

What we offer:

  • Intellectually stimulating and socially beneficial education projects
  • Work with nimble, fun, distributed teams
  • Opportunity to learn more and grow with us — if you have a particular skill set or interest, we want to put it to use
  • No bureaucracy — you have the chance to make an impact
  • Established — we’ve been around for 12 years and have a proven track record of success & longevity.

Should you turn out a good fit, there’s room for greater involvement and expanded roles on a more full-time basis, including participation in social media, branding & customer support for one of our Inquirium-made products.

Application Requirements:

To apply, send an email, with resumé, to telling us why you’re the one. Get our attention and show us how you communicate. If you catch our interest, we’ll contact you to follow-up.
