Looma exists to connect shoppers to the people and stories behind food & beverage products. Our first product, Loop™ At-Shelf Maker Stories, is a network of smart tablets in grocery stores that play short, human-centric films connecting producer to consumer. The data generated by Loop™ fuels our proprietary film production and optimization processes, forming a flywheel we believe will one day power the world’s most sophisticated platform for human-centric point-of-decision video.
The Production Coordinator is responsible for guiding the day-to-day project management, trafficking, and delivery of beautiful, impactful, data-optimized films for Loop™. This role reports directly to the Director of Story Development and will be primarily dedicated to managing the day-to-day production activities of a large portfolio of film projects. Candidates must be enthusiastic and adaptable project managers with acute attention to detail, eager to manage and continuously improve processes in a fast-moving environment.
The responsibilities for this role can be split into three primary categories:
- Film production pipeline management (70%)
