We are Mirum

The story

We are a global digital agency of makers, believers and make-believers.

We create experiences that people want and businesses need. We are for those who embrace the transformative power of digital.  We guide brands through our three offering platforms: business transformation, experience development and commerce activation.

We are Mirum. Let’s make what’s next.

Mirum Shopper is part of Mirum’s commerce activation platform offering, changing the way brands engage with consumers and shoppers. The platform combines tech, analytics, data, campaign planning, and creative services with social shopper, shopper engagement services, and the creation of original content – from branded videos to events, mobile and in-store platforms – to influence shoppers in new ways.

The culture

Mirum offices around the world share a common culture and way of thinking: our passions and expertise are in innovation, design, data, marketing and technology that drives business transformation in a world of constantly evolving behaviors and expectations.

We never stop looking for new answers. When someone questions if it can be done, we think ‘yes’. We are constantly wondering about the world around us. That is what makes us agile and open-minded for what is yet to be discovered.

We are explorers.
