Location: Toronto, Ontario
The Role Purpose
The Chief Curation Officer works directly with our CEO and will have full ownership for defining and significantly growing all the products that Mama Earth sells.
There are essentially 3 core pillars of work in the organization – what we curate/sell to our customers, how we sell it, and how we execute. This position will play a vital role in the ambitious growth plans for Mama Earth, as it will lead all things related to ‘what we sell’. This will be a balance between highly refined food curation and innovation, as well as P&L ownership for all product categories including driving sales, gross margin, and performance metrics. This general management role includes a broad and growing range of Mama Earth product categories, including leadership of the Mama Earth Kitchen, all Produce, all Packaged Products, and all New Categories we choose to enter. The role is also an opportunity for an entrepreneurial thinker to help redefine the subscription-based ecommerce experience.
The Chief Curation Officer will lead a team of 15-20 people, including a Head Chef and a full Kitchen team, a Produce Purchasing team, a Packaged Products team, an analytics role, plus lead innovation/new products. This leader will also oversee all relationships with key vendors (current and future), and guide the teams who work directly with local farms.
Experience / Knowledge / Leadership Skills Required
This is a full-time position. This position will work from our Toronto location (19 Waterman Ave) and will have bi-weekly meetings at our Peterborough location.
Perks & Compensation
Includes a competitive salary (based on experience level), excellent benefits program, staff pricing on organic food and produce, four weeks vacation time. In addition, you’ll be working towards building something that you’re passionate about and proud of with really nice, smart people.
We’re building a local food movement in Toronto. The next few years will be the most exciting, changing and fastest moving that we’ve ever had.
Our main headquarters are located in East Toronto and is around 20,000+ square feet. We are a progressive organization and we’re focused on the overall happiness, health and balance/mindfulness of our staff.
