About the Role

You want to change the way people think about and experience food, not only creating a new food category but catalyzing a global movement that drives consumer demand for cleaner, more delicious food. 

You thrive operating in a fast-paced environment in a very collaborative and entrepreneurial manner, and you have a passion for creating joy for partners while driving a high quality bar.

  • Demonstrated experience and leadership in managing comprehensive, global strategic communications and content programs that advance an organization's mission and goals. 
  • Ability to drive and effect change - at both a people and process level.
  • Bias for action - you are proactive and play an offensive game of PR.
  • Ability to anticipate and effectively manage change and ambiguity in a fast-paced environment.
  • Endless curiosity, quick wit, thoughtfulness and tenacity.
  • High judgment and great instincts.
  • Must be willing to get your hands dirty – we’re a small team, and no job is too big or too small for any of us.
