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!
As our key content creator, you will be shooting, producing and editing content for our website and social media – and we’re planning on making a lot of it! On top of shooting world-class recipes videos you’ll also have space to experiment with different styles of video format. We aim to be the go-to content platform for edible insects and your role will be core to driving this.
You will be working closely with the founders and the other members of the marketing team to plan the content schedule and deliver it.
