After years of working together as partners to deliver astonishing digital products, we are pleased to announce that Presence has been acquired by the award-winning global firm Work & Co.
“Since our founding, we’ve aimed to be the leader in bringing transformative digital products and experiences to market - and to be able to support our clients from concept through launch,” said Mohan Ramaswamy, Founding Partner at Work & Co. “The Presence team will help us further this mission and support our clients across the full product lifecycle.”
Work & Co is known for strategy and execution of digital transformation projects for many of the world's most admired organizations, including Fortune 500 firms, early stage companies, and nonprofits. Among those that have entrusted Work & Co are Apple, IKEA, PepsiCo, GoFundMe, Mercedes, Nike, Epic Games, Givenchy, Audacy, Panera Bread, and Goldman Sachs and several nonprofits including Planned Parenthood, Giving Gap, Woke Vote, and Ameelio. Work & Co has a team of nearly 470 team members across eight offices globaly. Presence currently has 80+ team members– and is steadily growing. Presence has one office in San Francisco and plans to open an office in Mexico.
“We opened the same year as Work & Co, in 2013, focused on helping our clients develop, release, and support sophisticated digital products, while also helping them build organizations for those products,” said Presence founder and CEO, Jason Monberg. “After partnering with Work & Co, this is a natural step towards our mutual goal of being widely known– to both talent and clients – as the premier product design and development company in the world. Through Presence joining Work & Co, our clients will gain access to a broader pool of talent and resources and our team will have exciting opportunities to expand their expertise. We feel a great deal of alignment in terms of the type of projects Work & Co undertakes, their commitment to work that matters, and how highly they value their team members.”
Presence is excited to bring our deep expertise in product management, full-stack development, and emerging technologies– including machine learning, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, and microservices– to Work & Co. “With our senior global team that has delivered hundreds of digital products, we will help scale the Work & Co technical team, provide expertise in emerging technologies, and help establish additional service models to uphold the quality of digital product experiences,” said Monberg.
Presence will continue to operate as an independent entity with the same leadership team. We remain focused on the work we’re known for: creating digital products in a collaborative and innovative manner, creative problem solving, and shipping successful products.
This is an exciting new chapter in the Presence story. We are grateful to you – our staff, clients, partners, and friends – for your continued support through the years.
Onward and upward!
