The requirements do not mention that you need to be a "manager" grade.

From PMI PMP page

A secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree, or the global equivalent) with at least five years of project management experience, with 7,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.

OR
A four-year degree (bachelor’s degree or the global equivalent) and at least three years of project management experience, with 4,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.


The key is the number of hours "leading and directing" projects.

You may want to look into the handbook for exact definition of "leading" and "directing".
