Life is fun. So should be your vitamins

Stop reading this and go to your kitchen cabinet. Go ahead, we’ll wait… So? How many vitamins do you see in there that you don’t take? What a pity! Two years ago we set out to change this. We want to make sure that taking vitamins becomes easy, fun and tasty! In the US you can find vitamin gummies in every household, now let’s bring vitamin gummies to Europe!

Yummygums proves that working on a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be annoying or boring. No more big, fat pills, but all the vitamins you are looking for in one tasty gummy! Yummygums is shaking up the dusty old-fashioned vitamin industry with a new way to take your vitamins – fun, young and delicious! Yummygums are vegan, made with natural ingredients and sold through our own webshop, marketplaces and (online) resellers. But we don’t just sell vitamin gummies – we are building a brand from scratch. Let’s make vitamins fun again!

Life is fun. So should be your work.

As a rapid growing digital first consumer brand, we are in need of a superb Social Media & Community manager.

In addition, you will dive into and execute creative ideas for copy, photography and videos. In doing so, you are constantly aware of new media developments and know how to apply them. Next to content planning, you will also analyze the statistics of our channels and report the results to the Head of Brand in order to devise new strategies

The purpose of your job is to establish our social presence & community fitting to our brand values. And yes, with establish we mean all the way from the start. So don’t confuse this for a purely strategic role, your hands are itching to execute your vision too.

Just to have some pointers: 

  • You will manage and grow the Yummygums owned SoMe channels: Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, LinkedIn, TikTok – whatever the go to social platform of the moment is.
