Senior Project Manager

Job description

Our Grip team is looking for a Senior Project Manager who takes ownership for the delivery of all projects we run for L’Oréal. At its core this means you will work closely with our Asset Producers and Project Coordinators to assure spotless delivery. At times you step in as Senior Project Manager yourself. In this role you work onsite at our client, working for Grip (www.grip.tools).


Representing Grip at L’Oréal means that you are well aligned with the internal Grip- and L’Oréal teams and have regular check-ins with the Development Team to understand the product with all its details.

As a Senior Project Manager, you will work with a range of clients in the FMCG industry, acting as a trusted advisor on all project related topics. You create, communicate, and execute the planning, track all deliverables, make sure we have all the input we need to start production, and match project progress with the agreed deadlines. You will be the interface between our clients (some of the world’s biggest brands) and our internal team that makes the “magic” happen: 3D-Artists, Developers, Artwork Specialists and more. You are the person who manages all programs for your key account. 


What’s Grip?

Grip is web-based solution that automatically generates visual content. It’s based on photorealistic 3D, capitalizing on INDG’s twenty-year-long experience in that field. 3D is good because once your beer or your juicer or your rocket is on Grip, it can be used and re-used for multiple media: images, videos, iOS apps, and such.


This vision has worked quite well with clients: in less than two years, Grip won Coca-Cola, Nivea, Heineken, L'Oréal and others. As you can imagine, working with these companies requires knowing why, when and how they produce the thousands of visuals we've been trying to automate. Now, Grip is changing every day to accommodate the things we learn.
