Job description

Who we are

myota are on a mission to prevent and reverse the 1 billion cases of chronic disease that exist globally. Founded by a team of leading microbiome researchers and fibre fermentation experts, we are at the cutting edge of innovation in the gut-health field.

Leveraging our own proprietary research (conducted at Cambridge, MIT and the University of Geneva), we have created the world’s first precision fibre mixes, that can help to not only reduce the symptoms and incidences of chronic disease, but also promote overall physical and mental health.

We are backed by world-class investors and in beta as of January 2022, so this is an exciting opportunity to join myota from the very start of our journey.

The role

We are looking for somebody to form an integral part of our founding team by building out, and owning, our Growth function. While the science behind myota has been in development for a decade, our D2C business is brand new, so you will be instrumental in helping us to deliver on our ambitious plans for the coming year (and beyond!).

This means working closely with the CCO to develop our marketing strategy, and owning metrics across customer acquisition, retention and engagement. You will have full autonomy in how to deploy our Marketing budget, and will be expected to optimise performance by using best-in-class tools and frameworks to quickly test, learn and iterate on our channel mix.

Being data driven is in myota’s DNA, and so we are looking for someone who is comfortable in leveraging data to inform decisions and create the best possible customer experience.

As a new company in an emerging category, you will also, along with the CCO, take responsibility for building our brand and ensuring that myota creatives can cut through the noise.

Most importantly though, you will be someone who is passionate about making a positive impact on the world. We truly believe that myota has potential not only to define a category, but help millions of people across the globe live longer, healthier lives. As a founding member of the myota team, you will play a critical role in helping to turn that vision into reality.
