About Us

At INDG we develop technology that enables engaging, hyper-realistic digital product experiences. Our goal is to make “every product playable”, by combining the science of technology with the artistry of computer-generated content. Our offices are in Amsterdam, Bucharest and New York. Clients include Adidas, Yamaha, Ralph Lauren, Electrolux, and Philips. Our CG artists, interactive designers, and developers focus on creating virtual versions of our clients’ products, so lifelike it feels like you could reach out and touch them. Yes, at INDG we geek out to sexy technology like 3D modelling and AR, but behind the bits and bytes is an obsessive drive to design sophisticated technology and software solutions. INDG is experiencing exciting growth and expansion. To help us create the most beautiful and the best digital experiences, we are seeking a Bucharest based: Head of Project Management.

Visual content (CGI) plays an important role in all INDG projects. We believe we can exceed client expectations by providing the highest quality. In order to ensure projects, run smoothly, processes are followed well and client briefs are being translated into concrete input for the team. To make sure all digital assets are being delivered on time, we would like to add a Junior Project Manager to our Bucharest team. You will independently manage projects and will mainly work on projects that are visually focused. Therefore, you will work side by side with the highly skilled and well-performing Studio teams both in Bucharest and Amsterdam. Tracking CGI projects, reporting progress, steering on deliveries and keeping an overview of the asset creation process are part of your daily activities.

About The Role

Our projects combine technology and creativity and go alongside complex processes. To reach the desired outcome it is essential to fully understand the content of our projects so therefore a background in a software development or online environment is a must. As Head of Project Management you are responsible for the Project Management Team (8 FTE) and will enhance this department’s effectiveness and professionalism by reviewing current processes and by coaching your team in order for them to perform up to their maximum potential.

You lead by example and provide a structured approach of the project itself, ensure a well-scheduled project planning, manage expectations and provide a clear communication to the project stakeholders. Next to the management of the department you will be in charge of complex projects for major clients yourself. Working closely with members of the MT and sales, finance, you focus on steering healthy margins and great satisfaction scores.

What We Offer

If you join us you’ll be part of a young and creative team that is located in the center of Bucharest. The Bucharest team is part of INDG, a global CG- company with offices in Bucharest, Amsterdam, and New York. The CG teams work across three disciplines: VFX & Motion Graphics, Packshots & Illustrations, and real-time 3D assets. CG/VFX Artists and Art Directors are supported by Technical Directors who continuously work on improving our 3DsMax based workflows. Examples of challenges the teams are facing include: how to best integrate CG into live action footage, visualizing steam or fire in a CG oven, cloths in a washing machine, and efficiently using cutting edge technologies. We work for large, international clients and are currently involved in challenging projects in different domains (automotive, electronics, architecture, and fashion).

The past years the Bucharest office has become the main CG Studio where all our visual content is created. As mentioned, the head office is located in Amsterdam and as a firm believer of personal contact there regularly is scheduled back and forth traveling. Besides always striving to deliver the best qualitative output, we also believe that a great working environment and having fun is important for our crew to perform up to their best ability. In addition to an environment where passion for technology and creative thinking is rewarded, INDG offers a competitive salary and benefits package, including training and career-development perks.
