Mill is all about answering a simple question: how can we prevent waste? Less waste can save time, money, energy, maybe even our planet. And there’s no better place to start than food. Food waste is one of the most solvable climate problems facing us today. Plus, our trash really stinks. It’s gross, heavy, and our least favorite chore. At Mill we are striving to build a better environment for all, as we take on climate and kitchen change.
About the Role
As a product manager at Mill, you’ll own end-to-end experiences – from concept to execution. The Mill mobile app is at the center of the Mill membership, providing advanced controls for the Mill kitchen bin as well as conveniently bringing together key services, tools, and insights for our users.

To make it all happen, we’re looking for a PM with a range of skills like market and customer research, designing the product architecture, UI development, software and technology planning and execution, and product analytics.
