Group Product Manager
Imperfect Foods was founded in 2015 with a mission to reduce food waste and build a better food system for everyone. We offer imperfect (yet delicious) produce, affordable pantry items, and quality meat and dairy. We deliver them conveniently to our customers’ doorsteps and pride ourselves on offering up to a 30% discount compared to grocery store prices. Our customers can get the healthy, seasonal produce they want alongside the grocery staples they rely on, without having to compromise their budget or values. We’re proving that doing the right thing for the planet doesn’t have to cost more, and that shopping for quality ingredients can support the people and resources that it takes to grow our favorite foods.
We’re headquartered in San Francisco with operations all over the country. Checkto see if there is an Imperfect near you!

About the Role:
To build a better food system, we make conscious grocery shopping as effortless as subscribing to your favorite magazine. Busy shoppers navigate the trade-offs between convenience, price, and sustainability on a weekly basis. Your job will be to show them they don’t have to.

As the Group Product Manager responsible for our core customer experience teams you will lead a small team of robust product managers to ensure a consistent vision for the entire customer journey across our platforms. As a player-coach you will also lead the creation of a new, native mobile experience by thinking deeply about how consumers buy food – from pre-planning throughout the week, to shopping, to post-purchase.
