The Role

FoodMaven is seeking a Public Relations and Content Manager who is interested in getting in on the ground level of an exciting startup with a big mission. Being a startup, we are looking for a storyteller that can wear multiple hats – someone who feels equally comfortable developing content and communication strategies, working directly with the press, and writing long-form narratives that tell more nuanced stories. You’ll have a strong desire to truly understand our different audiences – restaurants, institutional kitchens, farmers, ranchers, distributors, manufacturers, non-profits and more – so your writing always hits the mark. Just as important, you’ll have a passion for a mission-based company that works hard to tell our story and make a real impact.

This role report’s to the VP of Government and Industry Affairs, but will also work closely with the CEO as a key PR asset.  The position will be based in Colorado, with a preference for our Colorado Springs office. NOTE: This is a full-time role based in Colorado.

  • Write copy for all aspects of our PR and corporate communications – website, emails, social media posts, blog content, white papers, press releases and more.
  • Assist in the development of concepts for social media in coordination with marketing.
  • Regularly contribute and manage content as part of the company social media / content marketing strategy and plans.
  • Develop a comprehensive communications strategy that targets a wide range of media.
  • Identify and research potential topics for the content calendar based on our strategy and objectives.
  • Work with various stakeholders – product marketing, demand generation, customer support/success, sales, government / industry affairs, and office of CEO – to help with communications and content needs.
