• You manage the production schedule & coordinate the communication with internal stakeholders and/or external freelancers (photographers, graphic designers, 3D designers): prepare briefs, check their work and give them feedback to comply with clients’ briefs.
• You handle the content integration to IWD tools.
• You are proactive in improving the existing processes.

Clients’ relations:
• You are part of our support team and are responsible for answering users’ questions.
• You organize and train users on IWD solutions (face to face or web call).
• You do an administrative follow-up of clients.
• You assist the account managers in creating documentation for the clients.

• Ability to initiate new ideas and adapt easily.

Essential qualities:
