Creative Traffic Coordinator

Looma Background
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.

Position Summary

The Creative Traffic Coordinator is responsible for ensuring the work of Looma’s Communications & Creative department is executed on time with a high degree of polish, by effectively managing two primary pipelines — Design and Content Innovation — and connecting internal stakeholders with creatives as needed to keep projects on track. Content Innovation refers to experimental video content typically handled in-house rather than through our filmmaker network, and Design includes graphic and experiential work ranging from physical decor and sales decks to client-facing dashboards and brand assets. 

Reporting to the Chief Creative Officer, the CTC will oversee both Design and Content Innovation pipelines, setting a schedule of deadlines, assigning stakeholders to each necessary step of the process, and prioritizing work on the fly to ensure objectives are met. The CTC will also be responsible for organizing and managing our asset library, sourcing or curating content (i.e., photos, decks, design files) to support communications efforts org-wide, and supporting the Comms & Creative department as a whole.
