Who we are
MRM is an Edinburgh based technology company providing cutting edge marketing software to the drinks industry. Our software is used globally by clients such as Bacardi, Carlsberg, Diageo, Molson Coors and Pernod Ricard. Our innovative Brand Creator platform enables sales people to quickly and easily create customised drinks menus and point of sale materials for their customers. Our software is proven to save time and reduce admin, increasing productivity across entire sales teams. Our mission is to make the lives of sales reps better.
At MRM, our business model relies on users regularly submitting orders rather than paying monthly subscriptions. Therefore, the success of our business is directly linked to user engagement and in particular how quick, easy and enjoyable the software is to use.

The ideal candidate will need to identify strongly with our core values:
Integrity - do what you say you are going to do
Responsibility - take ownership and get stuff done
Customer Focus - understand our customer’s needs and exceed their expectations
Adventure – Take calculated risks and be comfortable exploring the unknown
Simplicity - Keep it simple
