Who We Are
Since launching in 2018, Flashfood has become a game-changer for millions of North American families, bringing abundance and variety to the dinner table despite rising grocery prices. We are on a mission to make healthy, delicious food affordable for everyone while reducing the environmental impact of food waste.
Flashfood is well-financed for growth and powered by an incredible team of mission-driven people from all over the globe. Our shared commitment to a sustainable future keeps us motivated to push through the challenges we face together.
We are purposeful about inclusion and are committed to building a blame-free remote culture where people are empowered to learn and grow. Our current team is over 51% women, and we’re proud to say we have over 47% female representation within leadership positions.
At an incredibly exciting time of growth for Flashfood, we’re looking for a driven VP Marketing to lead our high-performing marketing team on a 12-month contract (March 2023 - February 2024) with the possibility of extension. Reporting to the CMO, the successful candidate will add strategic depth to our team, accelerate our growth trajectory, and provide interim leadership of the marketing function while the CMO steps away for parental leave.
Part art and part science, the VP Marketing will work closely with the CMO to deliver on a broad marketing and comms mandate that includes the consumer side of the business: acquisition, lifecycle, and brand marketing, as well as supporting B2B sales and partner engagement. You’ll oversee all campaigns, content, and outgoing communications. Building Flashfood’s international profile, successfully launching new markets, evolving our internal workflows, and making the brand famous in culture, will all be part of your scope. You’ll lead a team of eight marketers, specialists, and brand designers, along with two embedded insights analysts.
Who You Are
A brand marketer. A comms leader. A growth marketer. The truth is, we really need it all. You bring proven experience growing a $10M+ B2C business in a mid to senior leadership position and are eager to develop a high-performing team. If you’ve got marketplace or mobile app experience, we’ll consider it a bonus. Although it’s not the bulk of your resumé, you’ve worked on the B2B side and are a master at building key relationships with vendors and customers alike.
You’re a polished communicator who understands the power of creativity. You have a way with words: you don’t hesitate to jump in on an edit and you write a killer brief. Data-driven decision-making is second nature to you – when faced with a tough problem, you turn to Tableau, Data Studio, or a good old-fashioned spreadsheet. You’ve got a passion for tech and a heart for our mission.
You’re an experienced people manager. A problem solver who knows when to lean in and when to empower your team. You’ve got years of experience identifying and developing top talent. You can convey urgency and energy to teams and direct reports and can leverage on-your-feet brainstorming skills to help others get unblocked.
Throughout your life, you have a history of exceeding expectations - whatever that may look like. You’re a hell of a teammate and care deeply about building a high-performance culture that lifts others up.
