Marketing Manager

Permanent employee, Full-time · München

Your mission

At Planet A Foods, we want to revolutionize the food industry to protect the planet we love. We believe that creating better food ingredients, done by perfecting centuries-old fermentation technology, leads to healthier alternatives for us all and can save up to 500 Mt of CO2 per year.

Our first product? Yummy chocolate! We created the world’s first 100% cocoa-free chocolate called Nocoa. Our Nocoa tastes amazing with a solid snap and smooth melt as well as roasty notes and a subtle sweetness. In addition it is completely natural, gluten-free, vegan and made with only seven ingredients. Nocoa doesn’t only deliver on taste and naturalness. It is also kind to the planet with a breathtaking low carbon and water footprint, plus a complete mitigation of deforestation and child slavery!

On our journey to protect our Planet A, we are looking for a world-class Marketing Manager. 


Your potential tasks at Planet A Foods:

  • Developing, implementing and executing strategic marketing plans.

  • Create and cultivate partnerships on experiential concepts and storytelling initiatives.

  • Create B2B marketing concepts to drive the Planet A Foods message in the B2B environment.

  • Tell our powerful story by collaborating with journalists, influencers, content creators and media. 

  • Develop and execute our social media and digital marketing strategy by creating inspiring content.

  • Work with Business Development, Product and R&D team to create integrated campaigns across functions.

  • Consult our b2b clients on Nocoa product launches (analyze target markets and objectives, develop marketing strategies and storytelling).

  • Develop a "cocoa-free marketing handbook": a handbook with standard guidelines in how to communicate cocoa-free chocolate.

  • Create and cultivate partnerships for product launches.

  • A lot more that you will be able to shape yourself. 
Your profile
  • You have some years of experience in marketing and communications and a proven track record, ideally consulting background and b2b experience.

  • You excel in getting things done and achieving results. Managing multiple projects simultaneously and keeping an eye on the budget is what you are really good at. 

  • You are a marketing allrounder with a hands on mentality. 

  • You have some years of relevant experience and a proven track record – or simply an incredible appetite – of working in marketing and communications and with people passionate about bringing progressive positive change to the world.

  • You are proficient – or willing to learn – with a variety of communication channels like websites, social media channels, PR – and tools like Microsoft Office and Slack.

  • You have experience in setting strategies, storytelling, building a community.

  • You know how to build your network of freelancers and agencies, best case you have a great network of freelancers and agencies you want to work with. 

  • You have a hands-on, pro-active, entrepreneurial attitude. 

  • You are a strong communicator (but what you say is relevant and not just a lot of words that make you sound smart). 

  • For this role, fluent in German and English is mandatory.

  • You are located in Munich or willing to relocate.

 

How we hire at Planet A Foods

Planet A Foods is committed to pursuing our values throughout our business. 

In the realm of recruitment and hiring, this means that we are not only an Equal Opportunity Employer, but also proactive in embedding fairness and equity into an inclusive recruitment and hiring process:

 

  • We value the knowledge, expertise, and skills that individuals bring based on their identities, life experiences, and backgrounds. We want people to bring their full selves to work and as a global company, we want to reflect the world. Our success relies on talented individuals who share our passion bringing innovation and insights that stem from their different perspectives to help us work as one team to accomplish ambitious global strategy goals. 

  • Our recruitment is inclusive. We recruit top talent that reflect the diversity of the world and global marketplace we inhabit. We conduct deliberate and purposeful recruitment that brings applicants to Planet A Foods that represent a broad range of identities, life experiences, backgrounds, and skill sets.

  • Our hiring process is transparent and consistent. We have high standards for ensuring a clear process is used consistently with every candidate. There are no side doors for bringing in people. We adhere to a hiring protocol that includes and recognizes differences rather than rule them out.

  • We recognize that one of the dynamics of meaningful inclusion is seeing that all people can succeed in our workplace. We know representation matters and that our values are not something we simply talk about, it’s something we work toward. It’s something we do. Our values must show up in who works on the Planet A Foods team, at every level. 

Our values: 

Fellowship

We share a great vision that can only be achieved as a team. We prefer enabling others to succeed instead of petting our egos.

On Discovery

We keep our eyes, hearts, and minds open, curious to explore, improve and create new realities beyond the ordinary.

Creating impact

We aim at building a better world. Science is at our hearts, and full of passion we progress on our journey.

Just do it

We rather take a lousy first step than standing still or losing ourselves in discussions. Smart words are worth nothing if they are not accompanied by smart actions.

 

Why us?

Our hierarchy is flat and communication direct, which means that we operate and learn fast, as a team. You can expect the following:

 

  • Competitive salary within the industry (incl. stock options)

  • Flexible working hours as we believe in ownership and trust

  • Learning & Development Program for all our team members

  • Regular team events

  • Free drinks & snacks

  • Remote work is possible, your “normal” place to work is our office/ lab (we believe in building a strong culture needs a place where we physically meet and interact) 

We are an equal-opportunity employer and value diversity. We consider all applications equally regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, or gender identity. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply.
