Project Manager

Future Platforms, a multi award-winning digital agency based in central London. With a strong focus on mobile, we also work across web, wearables, and games consoles for some of the biggest brands in the world.

For over 20 years we’ve been helping our clients to define and build solutions that deliver better value to customers, and we believe in products that solve problems for users. It’s an approach that suits leading names like Domino’s Pizza, EE, the Premier League and The FA, and we build long-lasting relationships with the ambitious brands we work alongside.

We’re there at every step of the project lifecycle, from strategy, UX and design through to build, testing, release and maintenance. Digital is always shifting and changing, and we see it as an on-going investment; constantly seeking new and exciting ways to enhance our clients’ digital presence.

Based in a single central London office, our diverse, friendly and collaborative team of developers, designers, testers, and strategists bring knowledge and experience from across the globe with them. You won’t see us outsourcing your work though, and it’s this promise that guarantees a final solution that’s been crafted and considered by our most senior individuals.
