Junior Project Manager
Viber is one of the world’s most popular messaging apps, connecting people everyday and facilitating creative self-expression with stickers, doodles and even self-destructing photo and video messages – for FREE. With such a massive user base – over 1 billion users around the globe! – we take tremendous pride in the fact that Viber is localized to 40 languages and available to so many people in their native tongue.
