We’re on a mission to eliminate all single use plastics for a more sustainable future. We’re starting by tackling disposable coffee cups, by providing a reusable digital coffee cup service for businesses.
We are looking for an experienced Technical Product Manager with a passion for making the world a better place. The role is to build, lead and manage the product vision, create a roadmap and bring to life returnable food packaging (starting with cups and lids) for some of the UK’s biggest food and beverage businesses. You’ll need to be the perfect mix of technical, creative, practical and personable.

We’ve had some attention from the press already. Check out : BBC, Sky, Y-Food, Design Week, Core77, Disrupt Innovation Festival, Dwell, Design Indaba and Ogilvy.

Cupclub culture
You’ll be given the freedom to make decisions and you’ll be empowered to design and implement effective and efficient systems. You’ll receive the support and the opportunity to learn from those around you. We are currently a growing team of four plus a wide network of contractors with specialist skills. We fund a monthly team outing where we check out one of the capital’s cultural highlights.

Our (soon to be) clients
One of the key reasons for working here is that you get to work with some of the most important sustainability driven clients in the UK. Happy clients and ongoing relationships are our most important indicator of success, and the cornerstone of our business. We can’t publically name our soon-to-be clients just yet. So far they range all the way from high street coffee brands through to policy and government bodies.
