Vivobarefoot is not just a footwear company; we are a collective of dreamers and activists dedicated to improving human and planetary health through our innovative, minimalist shoes. As a brand that celebrates the outdoors and champions sustainability, we're looking for like-minded individuals to help us in our quest for full regeneration. Our dynamic work environment fosters fast-paced learning, creativity, and mutual support among a team of mates making a real difference.

  • Develop cutting-edge marketing strategies for the performance category and international markets.
  • Lead compelling, creative campaigns that integrate across product lines and storytelling moments.
  • Direct marketing for retail locations in London and Berlin and manage distributor partnerships globally.
  • Implement innovative digital marketing techniques to boost online engagement and brand visibility.
  • Balance creative marketing initiatives with commercial goals to drive company growth.
  • Analyze market trends, customer insights, and perform industry research to stay ahead of the curve.
  • Collaborate with various teams to ensure cohesive brand messaging and successful strategy implementation.
  • At least 7 years of senior marketing experience, with a record of innovation and disruptive marketing.
  • Experience in sustainability within the marketing realm is a plus.
  • Proven capability in crafting and executing successful marketing campaigns.
  • Strong leadership and interpersonal skills for cross-functional team management.
  • A proactive approach to market trends and strategic adaptability.
  • Interest in minimalist footwear or regenerative, ethical fashion is a major advantage.
  • Outstanding project management abilities and analytical skills.

This full-time, hybrid role is based in the UK, with a requirement of 62 in-person 'connection days' annually. Vivobarefoot is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity and creating an inclusive environment. We welcome candidates of all backgrounds and walks of life to join our journey to make a positive impact through our products and practices.

We have a core belief that our toxic, sedentary lifestyles are making humans, and the planet, sick. So we’re on a mission to change it.

We’re a bunch of outsiders, dreamers, entrepreneurs, rebels and activists who fight for full regeneration of our people and planet. We move furiously fast in an ever-changing ecosystem, and we also fail fast, learn, get back up and try again. To thrive in this slightly crazy atmosphere, we’re also a bunch of mates, doing cool things and supporting each other along the way.

Celebrating the outdoors isn’t just something we talk about - when the seasons change we’re out there to mark it. Exploring, sharing, workshopping, camping and enjoying local produce (and wine) is all part of it. Ideally you already love the natural world, or you are eager to get out there, learn and get involved. You’ll be supported and encouraged all the way.

We are a footwear company, a health and wellbeing company, and an evolving bunch of activists. And we’re searching for brilliant humans with exceptional skills and talent to help us make this dream into a reality.
