Interactive Project Manager

  • Princeton, NJ
  • Full-time

Company Description

Headquartered in the beautiful/vaguely academic town of Princeton NJ, Ripen is a full-service agency with a passion for eCommerce business. Our four departments (creative, marketing, development, technology) work closely on all projects, fueled by a passion for shared data, donuts, and sushi. Ripen has achieved incredible growth over our 10 year lifespan. We’re looking to boost our momentum even further with top professional talent. Hopefully, that’s you.

 

Our office working environment is rooted in a positive, collaborative spirit. This isn’t the kind of place where people pull rank… unless it’s to volunteer for buying lunch. You’ll find friendly banter is a daily mainstay, as are reasonable working hours. As such, employee satisfaction is high, efficiency is rising, and coffee flows in great abundance.
