Introduction

At Flashfood, we are on a mission to reduce the environmental impact of food waste and affordably feed people. We are tackling this gigantic problem together, with a team that believes in authenticity, perseverance, and humility. Flashfood is a mobile platform connecting surplus food directly to its users at massive discounts to reduce food waste. Users see deals on surplus food through their phone, pay through their phone and pick it up in the store. Flashfood is currently partnered with Loblaw in Canada and a series of additional grocery partners in the U.S. Our team comes from a variety of different industries and backgrounds such as management consulting, finance, and emerging technology, however, we decided it was time to do something different - something that would create a better world for future generations! Our casual and collaborative culture makes us who we are. We have a passion for supporting our community and that starts with our ability to empower our people. We are ambitious and hard working, and are extremely proud of the culture we have created. We communicate openly, and are not afraid to push boundaries. We are a small but mighty team of nearly 50, and you will be trusted to work independently a lot of the time as this role can be done remotely most days of the week (pre-COVID, fully remote currently and potentially into the future). This doesn’t mean you’ll have trouble keeping up though! You will have lots of guidance and full training on exactly what to do. We’ll always be available to answer your questions and provide feedback


Position

A proven leader who’s been successfully running a team under different growth scenarios with metrics to back up why you’re the right person. Ideally with experience running campaigns that are consumer-focused (consumer app, D2C) with some background in B2B. You’re driven, you aren’t afraid to say what you think, you’re respectful and you don’t have an ego. You can take constructive feedback well and action on it, or question it in a respectful way. You understand that your perspective might not always be the right one but you’re not afraid to share it. You’re empathetic but you expect results from yourself. Throughout your life, you have a history of exceeding expectations - whatever that may look like. You’re a hell of a teammate and you look out for and lift up your other teammates. You understand that winning takes a team and it makes you happy to lift others up in your organization.


Responsibilities

A good attitude and an optimistic outlook.  A desire to solve problems and use data to improve new market expansion while optimizing existing markets. Ideally, some meaningful experience as it relates to a consumer app, D2C brand or B2B2C business. You understand the consumer side of a marketplace.  You have experience, 7-10 years, maybe less, maybe more? Something meaningful.  You may also have less years of experience but have accomplished a lot that would satisfy the year requirements.  


Your communication and professionalism to deal with fortune 100 partners is excellent. You have a strong desire for your team to win.  You say ‘we’ instead of ‘I’.  The underlying ‘want’ to take your experience in your field and help expand a business model proven to make companies greater profit while feeding families more affordably and collectively reducing the harmful environmental effects of food waste.

Qualifications

You’ll be a member of the executive team, owning the consumer marketing side of the business (and some parts of the B2B side).  Leading demand generation, shopper insights and using data to inform decision-making for your team turning on new markets and ensuring success.  Paid acquisition channels, paid social, press, referrals/credits and all areas of shopper growth will fall under your watchful eye. You’re going to own the entire marketing business and manage a growing team (of 4).
