The Client Manager (CM) position at Virid is one of the eCommerce industry’s most exciting positions and offers the opportunity to work with some of the internet’s most respected retail brands.

For new development work, they will act as a Client advocate, clearly communicating internally the business requirements or concerns driving any request, enabling developers to design the best possible technical solution for our Client’s needs. The CM will manage technical and design resources for these projects to ensure on time and on budget delivery and keep Clients updated on progress.
