WANTED: Super Client Director

international-roll-out

At SuperHeroes we’re on a mission: to save the world from boring advertising.
And as our mission gets more traction throughout the world, we need more help.

 

SuperHeroes is an international, digitally native creative agency. We’ve got an awesome team of about 40 heroes – who span something like 12 nationalities – and an amazing international roster of clients (like Converse, MTV, Nike, Heineken, ASUS, ING and Coca Cola).

 

As an independent boutique agency our creative business approach and innovative set of weapons is attracting a lot of attention. We’ve opened up an New York office and are closely looking at Asia as well. We’ve got no shortage of ambition and entrepreneurship and let creativity be leading in everything we do.

 

We are looking for a ‘Super Client Director’: someone to foster client relationships, assess client business opportunities and also to manage new business. We want you to not just be a creative partner for our clients, but also to be a true business partner. This position is initially for our Amsterdam office, but regular travel is to be expected.

 

You have on-going communication with a number of selected clients to oversee all running projects. You make sure our service levels are top-notch and keep teams on client and hero side motivated and happy.

 

Responsibilities
•    Manage the client relationship, gain trust and happiness
•    Make sure that projects are on time, within budget and to international quality standards
•    Build the business, both on client side and agency side

 

Professional skills
•    Min of 5-7+ years of experience in client relationship management at an ad agency somewhere in the world
•    Very strong written and verbal communication skills (fluent or native English)
•    Service oriented, hands-on and a good understanding of business and commercial issues
•    A sociable and inspiring personality – people are genuinely happy to see you.
•    Able to work independently and balance multiple tasks
•    Love for innovation and non-traditional advertising

 

What we offer
•     You will get a fulltime job
•     You will become a Super Hero (isn’t that just awesome?)
•     You will work in one of the 30 most coolest offices in the world, in our hideout in the heart of Amsterdam
•          You’ll even get a decent salary.

 

Interested?
Please send your cv and motivation to airmail@hellosuperheroes.com before October 15th, or contact Django @ + 31 (0)20 846 38 06. Let’s fly!

Remastering the Internet

 

The giggle inducing viral Damn Daniel took over our damn lives in no time, despite being shot with vertical video, crackling audio and shaky camera work. In an ambitious move, our New York office and LG set out to improve the already awesome by remastering the Internet’s favorite homegrown virals with the new LG V20, starting with Damn Daniel Remastered.

 

“What better way to pay tribute to the virals we love, than to remaster them with modern technology?” says Rob Zuurbier, managing director of our Williamsburg based shop. The campaign is one smooth musical tribute, that aims at the heart of the Internet audience.

We kick off with a remastering of Damn Daniel, the viral film featuring two high school friends, one of which offers daily narration on his buddy Daniel’s fresh fashion skills. The film features the original creators alongside an over-the-top 90’s R&B group, who lovingly serenade the pair as they smoothly reenact the viral. To really prove the audio and video recording capabilities of the LG V20, the films and vocals were recorded with the device.

 

Can it get even smoother? Oooh yes it can.
Following up Damn Daniel, the campaign continues its remastering mission in the upcoming weeks with two other big viral hits. The device was also used to record a series of short tutorial videos with the R&B group highlighting the V20’s key features, like wide angle, steady recording and hi-fi audio.

 

You better keep ears out and eyes open for these fellows.

If we ran the Clinton campaign

screen-shot-2016-09-20-at-21-36-15

In the midst of the recent boom around Hillary Clinton’s health issues, the daily Dutch tv-show ‘De Wereld Draait Door’ asked us what we would do if we were Hillary’s campaign manager.

 

In no-time our Amsterdam headquarters turned into Hillary’s war room and we created a 30 second campaign commercial. It made the news and word on the street is, it even reached all the way to Clinton’s real campaign director.

 

 

Anytime Hill, anytime!

We are very happy to present to you our new SuperHeroes. In this blog series you get to know more details about every one of them. Let’s start with Camiel Bulder, strategist, who came over from KesselsKramer.

 

 

What are your superpowers?

“I have this rare condition my friends call Camielopedia, which sometimes causes me to blurt out random trivia about any given subject.”

What is your personal mission?

“To use data for inspiration instead of validation.”

 

What’s on your Spotify playlist?

“Under ‘Recently played artists’ are listed: Chassol, Hall & Oates, Frank Ocean, TLC, Charles Mingus and Fetty Wap.”

Which visual artist do you get inspired by?

“My life has never been the same since I walked into Mirosław Bałka’s installation ‘How it is’ in Tate Modern seven years ago.”

If your batmobile should be sponsored by one brand which one would it be and why?

“Sell it to the highest bidder, so probably GoldenPalace.com”

 

Which apps are in your iPhone’s bottom row?

“Phone, Safari, Gmail, Messages. Most frequently used apps in my first screen are Wunderlist, Instapaper, Downcast and the ING app.”

 

What would you ask Elon Musk when you sit next to him in the Hyperloop’s first ride?

“Did you know that a human head weighs eight pounds?”

Are you our next Dutch sidekick?

We love to put flags across the globe when it comes to joining our lunch table. At this point we work with a dozen nationalities. This includes a Norwegian design badass, a copywriter from Minnesota and a Swedish art-director. However, we need to balance out the cycling, liquorice treats and our knowledge on cheese.

 

That’s why we now call out to Dutch interns. Our creative department can use some Dutch skills. Copy, art, digital, ping pong. Whatever. You are a devoted creative who wants to earn its way into the creative industry.

 

As an intern you’ll be working on the same briefs as the rest of the team. This means you’ll be tasked with developing mind blowing ideas for our Dutch and international clients. You’ll learn to master your superpowers with the help of our senior creatives, developers, designers, strategists and creative directors.

 

Are you looking for a 6 month internship? Can’t wait to start at our hideout in Amsterdam? And do you know how to eat a tompouce? Then introduce yourself (and perhaps your teammate) in the best way possible at airmail@hellosuperheroes.com. Imposters will be judged too, honestly.
