Newgen is a global pre-press editorial and content production supplier. We have offices in India; Texas; UK; the Netherlands; Germany and Malaysia.

We are seeking a US-based project manager to join our team of domestic project managers supporting our university press clients.

Newgen project managers report to an onshore project management team; have direct contact with the production and editorial departments within our client base; manage projects across various disciplines; and carry a full load of titles (up to 15 at a time and 35–40 per year).

Project management responsibilities include:

  • manuscript assessment
  • scheduling
  • author management
  • copyedit review
  • art assessment
  • page proof review
  • problem solving
