Mimica is looking for a student to join our team to help us share our story with our existing loyal supporters and to build awareness of our mission to radically reduce food waste.

About us

At Mimica, we’ve created a label and other types of packaging that show the true freshness of food, according to the temperature conditions, as an alternative to overcautious fixed expiry dates that drive so much good food to be wasted. We are preparing to launch our first product, a bottle cap for juices, in the market. We’re looking for someone to join our team remotely to help us build momentum for our launch by creating and sharing content that is engaging, thought provoking and inspires discussion. You will be creating content that is cohesive with Mimica’s brand guidelines and tone of voice. We are currently a team of 10 diverse people and you would work directly with the founder of the company, as well as others in the team.
