Marina Maher Communications Project Manager in New York, New York
MMC is not just a PR agency. We’re a data-driven, modern communications company that delivers scaled influence, cultural relevance and brand talkability to our Fortune 200 consumer and healthcare brands. We always drive business results for our clients. Innovators at heart, we love to build and challenge the status quo. That’s why The Holmes Report awarded us both 2018 North American Agency of the Year AND Campaign of the Year. For the entrepreneurially minded, working at MMC is an amazing opportunity to get people talking, thinking and behaving differently.
Our team is a deeply committed and somewhat quirky bunch of content creators, brand builders, growth hackers, storytellers, experientialists, artists, mad data scientists, tech junkies and trend sensors. All armed with powerful ideas and a strong point of view and drive to win. We’re relentlessly curious, always creating, innovating often, agile and responsive.
MMC is moving fast and we have doubled our business in the last 5 years. Can you keep up? If you fit our qualifications, we have a spot for you.
