Interpersonal Frequency (I.F.) is seeking a Senior Project Manager to add to our growing team.

At I.F., we’re putting the government in the cloud. We design, build, maintain, and grow sites on our open web stack for some of the largest cities, public libraries, and government agencies in the country.
