Flashfood is a start-up company that allows users to receive major discounts on foods with lower shelf life, resulting in money saved and food waste reduced! We have 405 stores in Canada currently and have recently launched a pilot in the US.
To accomplish our mission, we've created an approach that allows grocery stores to post foods before their best before date, to sell to shoppers for steep discounts. Our users can see how much they save on great food items and reduce the carbon footprint.
We are here to develop a great product and business, contributing to Flashfood's growth. In turn, that growth means that you'll have the opportunity to stretch yourself, make a meaningful impact and build a very bright future for your career.
By joining the product team as a Product Manager, you’ll be managing a pillar of our product, working closely with the product design and engineering team, and connect with our users in a meaningful way. You’ll help carve out the best product management practices with the rest of our team setting a solid foundation for future teammates.
You'll get a valuable working experience with our VP, Product & Design, and other members of the team. You'll get to help combat food waste and help make food more affordable for shoppers. How often do you get to learn at your job while helping a great cause?!
