Product Manager

Product Manager

Remote, with ability to travel to Edinburgh City Centre 

Salary between £40,000 and £50,000, depending on experience 

Our Purpose 

At MRM Global, our purpose is to enable the world’s leading consumer brands to increase their sales and reduce wastage. 

Research shows that up to 30% of physical marketing materials in the consumer goods industry are never executed and are instead sent to landfill, incinerated, or recycled. This wastes time, resources, money and most importantly has a huge negative impact on the environment. 

At MRM Global, we believe there is a better way to support customers with physical marketing. We believe that the future is on-demand ordering, localised content, and distributed production. 

Global consumer brands such as Bacardi, Diageo, Carlsberg, and many others use our Brand Creator technology platform to create customised and brand compliant marketing materials that are produced 100% on-demand through our global cloud printing network. 

MRM Global is a high growth scale-up business with an ambition to become an industry leading marketing technology company. Since we launched our Brand Creator platform 5 years ago, we have grown rapidly (average year on year revenue growth of 41%) and have expanded into 35 countries. In 2020, we secured a £2.6m investment from the British Growth Fund (BGF) to fund our continued growth with a focus on expanding rapidly in North America. 

Our next phase of growth is the most exciting yet as we scale the business globally and we’re looking for brilliant people to join us on our mission to fundamentally change the way that global brands deliver their physical marketing.
