At VMLY&R, we create connected brands. We resist the usual ways of seeing, doing and thinking — harnessing creativity, technology and culture — to reimagine the entire connected consumer experience. Our goal? To create work that becomes part of people’s lives, to drive value for our clients and, in the best of cases, to impact the world.

A Project Manager plans, organizes and executes digital projects from start to finish. He or she estimates, scopes and creates project plans for internal and external teams and meets with clients to understand needs, determine specifications and coordinate planning.

This position may also be known as “project leader” or “interactive producer.”

As part of the WPP Group, VMLY&R offers one of the best overall compensation packages in the business.
