We believe in a food system focused on people and passion and we're really excited by the innovation that's happening across the movement for better food. We think we've come up with a digital innovation that can help build this movement and empower small food businesses to compete.

We're looking for an inspirational leader to come on board, help turn a prototype into a brilliant product, build a coalition of the willing, craft a high impact launch and steer the business to profitability.


About You

If you have experience of tech product development that would be great – but actually the much more important thing is that you can be a champion of clarity, focus and delivering real value to each of the stakeholders.

A passion for food – market stalls, pop-ups, small producers, independent restaurants – is an absolute must. You'll need to build a network of these businesses and make them feel like the platform is theirs.

You'll also lead the development and implementation of strategies to grow users and revenue.

Inspirational leadership is the most important quality we're looking for, with P&L experience, product development, business development and understanding tech businesses all helpful to some degree.

We have some startup capital and good leads on raising the rest, but part of your role would be to help us complete the financing.


More details on salary


As you'll take charge of developing the commercial plan, it's up to you to suggest an appropriate salary. 

We believe in paying competitively, but also prize people with a wider set of motivations than money alone.

We're commercially ambitious, as we don't think the business is sustainable any other way, and we're very open to generous incentives for long term value creation and realisation.
