Reporting to the Head of Marketing, we are looking for a talented and ambitious PR gun to manage our media communications strategy. Your clear, consistent, breakthrough storytelling with the most impactful hospo and tech reporters will unleash the power of press for our business.
Marketing and PR is an integral part of growth at Mr Yum - early stories with publications like Broadsheet and Smart Company, and more recent Good Food and Channel 7 features have been invaluable to cement our role in the industry. Despite a successful pilot with a PR agency, we've made the call to bring this high visibility and high impact role in-house so PR is closer to the business and can move at super speed! Our marketing function is 100% in-house, so you’ll be running the show when it comes to PR (read: no marketing or PR agency!) This role's scope will initially be focused on key Australian markets (hence why local reporter connections are key!), but will grow into an international role. 🚀
Hi, we’re Mr Yum 👋
Hospitality & entertainment are tough industries where margins are slim and even more challenging now through COVID. We started Mr Yum at the end of 2018 to help venues make the numbers work.
Our product is a QR code visual menu, ordering & payment platform with options for dine-in orders, pickup takeaway and delivery. Mr Yum empowers businesses to own and understand their customers, increase spend and allow their staff to focus on meaningful interactions rather than transactional ones.
In 2020, we grew 25x, found product market fit, built a trusted brand and proved out strong unit economics. bitly.com/mryum-2020
With your help, we have ambitious goals to scale the business (locally & internationally!) this year by building the most beautiful, powerful tools for our customers. Our B2B customers range from national venue groups including Australian Venue Co, airports, stadiums all the way to boutique hotels and family-run cafes and restaurants.
Our team is made up of over 40 kind and driven humans working out of Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and The Philippines. We’re hiring this role for our beautiful Melbourne HQ — where we’re enjoying a mix of WFH and time collaborating in the office. Mr Yum is made with love in Melbourne, so this role will sit on the ‘Global’ HQ marketing team as we expand internationally.
We’re looking for the person in this role to:
You (might be) a journalist 🖋
You care deeply about the hospitality and entertainment industry 🤝
You are excited about new product development 📱
You’re well connected in both the hospo AND start-up community (a unicorn 🦄, we know, but it might just be you!)
You eat data for breakfast 🍳
You’re a do-er and accountable teammate ✅
This depends on your experience, but we’re proud to offer competitive salary with ESOP (employee share option plan) to all new hires. Our sunny Collingwood office is home to a gym, rooftop, 4 cute office dogs, stocked drinks fridge and the best new equipment to set you up for success. Expect autonomy and responsibility, solving problems you've never imagined even existed, at high pace.
Mr Yum provides 4 weeks paid vacation, flexibility to take extra unpaid leave, and day-to-day work times to suit your routine (most people start around 10am).
