As a Digital Project Manager for Grapefruit, a digital agency, you will have the chance to make things different and meaningful. You’re going to be part of a senior-coordinated team where together you push the limits to deliver innovative experiences for high profile clients.
What will you gain with this new opportunity?
Your focus will be on coordinating a super team and be the ally that our client needs. Therefore you’ll have the liberty (and risks) to experiment, pitch new processes and procedures, propose over-the-top (but tangible) solutions while staying ahead of the competition.
You will coordinate the implementation of various digital platforms, starting with understanding the business’ problems of our current/new clients and actively contribute to new business efforts by making proposals for specific features/improvements. Your focus will be on project delivery and requirements management for the entire product life cycle.
You will be part of Grapefruit’s Customer Success Team and will work closely with Account Managers and with the delivery team (designers, software developers, testers, content editors) and will be reporting to the Customer Success Manager.
Professional and Personal Growth
We continuously invest in the professional growth of our team. Our wish is that each team member gets visibility when it comes to their expertise and constantly grows. We encourage people to take courses and we pay for them if they are useful for present or future projects.
Company and team size
We have two offices in Iasi & Bucharest. At this moment we are 50+ people in the company, with a Customer Success team of 8 colleagues with both Account Manager and Digital Project Manager colleagues.
We have cross-specialty teams. This means you will work together with other digital project manager colleagues, designers, marketing specialists & other developers. The team sizes range from 3 to 9 colleagues.
Leadership Opportunities & Domain Experts
The majority of our team leaders come from within the organization. We encourage colleagues to develop their leadership potential. To do this we have shadowing programs for people that want to learn how to become a team leader. We encourage people to learn so they become domain experts on the technologies they like. This way they become the go to person when it comes to that specific technology and can practice leadership skills.
Remote work, Flexible schedule & we don’t encourage overtime
You can work remotely, or from the office. We usually work from 9:00 to 18:00 with one hour of break. If you need, you can take time off during the day and either catch-up later or take it from your vacation days. If you need a different schedule we can also accommodate this. Just mention it at the interview and we will find a solution that suits everyone.
We don’t like overtime and we don’t encourage it. If the needs appear though, you are always asked if you want to do it and it is always paid. If you don’t want to do overtime, there are no hard feelings.
We believe in fairness so all our salaries are set to seniority levels. We check seniority levels twice a year. You get support from your team leader to advance to the next seniority levels. If you advance to the next seniority level, you automatically get a raise.
If you have the same seniority level as a colleague, you both have the same salary, so there are no hard feelings. We also research and participate in salary studies to remain competitive in the market.
