IDEO Chicago is in search of a Project Coordinator who will coordinate the execution of multiple streams of Talent Programs in Chicago and across all of IDEO. This individual will be partnering with the Global Director of Recruiting and the Chicago Talent team to build strong internal and external relationships, creatively solve complex scheduling challenges, and ensure the completion of each project. The variety—and pace—is engaging , vast, and constantly evolving.
Project Coordinators make the biggest impact through organization, prioritization, empathy, and flexibility. They ensure that our teams, leaders, and designers are always prepared and meeting their deadlines. They set others up for success by juggling busy schedules and commitments. They spot and creatively tackle hurdles two steps ahead of those they support. This role is critical when it comes to keeping the team moving forward in a coordinated way. We count on them to bring clarity to chaos, whether problem solving with internal stakeholders or ensuring external client needs are met, and to always follow through.
IDEO is a place unlike any other where you can solve complex challenges alongside thoughtful individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. We work hard, but we also intentionally craft moments that allow our community to pause, create, and connect. We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process.
