Job Description

Presence Product Group creates innovative digital products for global brands and businesses of every size. We love what we do and are looking for others who share this passion.

Presence approaches every project from a holistic point of view. This way, we make sure our decisions align with the business goals of our clients and the realities of their market.

For us, product development models come in all shapes and sizes. We’re model agnostic. We break development down into its constituent parts and, from those parts, build a process tailored to our clients. We stay flexible and create products that are as unique as the companies we serve.
