Chief of Staff / Founders Associate (f/m/d)

Germany, Berlin, BerlinBackbone

Job description

Climate change and biodiversity loss are accelerating and threatening the foundations of our lives. Food, especially meat, is a major cause of greenhouse gas emissions. We know it, yet all too often we give in to our cravings and choose meat instead of sustainable alternatives. And did you know: global meat consumption is growing massively!
We are convinced that irresistible pleasures, not compromise, are key to changing people’s ways. What the world needs is new food, so delicious that billions of people indulge in eating it, saving the planet as a beneficial side effect.
There’s no time to lose. Join us now and let’s build this positive future together!

As our Founder's Associate you will work directly with us founders and get a unique insight into the opportunities and challenges of our company. Like a multi-functional “Swiss Army Knife” you manage critical projects from different areas of the organisation, help resolve some of the challenges that come with building a business, and implement a smooth flow of information across the whole team and key external partners. Thereby, you make us founders and the team more effective, and Project Eaden more successful.

💌 Why you should apply now

  1. We have just started. We can build everything from scratch without any legacy or constraints!
  2. Some of the brightest minds believe in us. We are backed by top tier VCs and awesome angels (happy to share details once we talk)
  3. The time is now! It’s the beginning of a new era. Food is undergoing a massive transformation. Let’s make sustainable food so irresistible that millions of consumers switch away from meat, fast!

🦄 A word on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We believe in equal opportunities for all. We embrace diversity in every respect. The most important thing is that we all share the same basic values and can align on Eaden’s purpose. We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, irrespective of age, colour, national origin, race, religion, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or marital status.

🏯 Workspace and culture

We’re about to build something massive – a gentle giant. In around two to three years’ time we’ll have an internationally distributed team, which is why everything has to work remotely. For starters, though, we strongly believe that our culture and team spirit will benefit from spending most of our time together at one workplace, our beautiful office and kitchen-laboratory.
