Chef Product Manager 🍔

We are looking for a highly motivated Product Manager to develop our next generation products and help us win big restaurant accounts with delicious samples!
About Yum Bug

At Yum Bug we turn insects into delicious foods people love and recognise like burgers, mince and nuggets. Our bug-based foods aren't just great for the planet but are also great for you with about 30% more protein than beef.

We have had backing from the likes of Holly Branson (Virgin), Peter Norris (Virgin), Carl Pei (Nothing, One Plus), James Frost (Gay Times).


We’re on a mission to change perceptions and take edible insects mainstream. To do this Yum Bug is building a world-class team of fun-loving, ambitious people, and we’d love you to be one of them!
