Wefarm, the world’s largest farmer-to-farmer digital network, enables farmers to connect with one another over SMS to solve problems, share ideas and spread innovation, utilising the latest machine learning technology to enable this connection.
Small-scale agriculture is the biggest industry on earth, with more than a billion farmers globally supplying 70% of the world's food and commodities, yet remaining digitally unconnected. Until Wefarm, no other had built a digital platform for these farmers to share their vital insights, without having to go online!
Since our launch in 2015 we have grown to serve 1.9 million farmers across the world, who share more than 30,000 Qs & As a per day. Wefarm has raised investment from some of the world’s leading VCs, including True Ventures in Silicon Valley, and we are looking to add to a world-class team based across London, Nairobi, Kampala and Dar-es-Salaam.
Join us and be a part of our mission to build an ecosystem for global agriculture, with the farmer at the centre!
We are looking for an experienced brand expert who is able to lead on the overall development of the brand strategy for Wefarm across all channels and audiences. You will be excited about engaging deeply with Wefarm’s mission to build an ecosystem for small-scale farmers globally at one of the UK’s fastest-growing startups, and be able to build the brand playbook and campaigns to reach and inspire farmers, B2B partners and potential employees alike, in all markets in which we operate. While over time you will build a team at the company, you will also have to be comfortable initially building and executing the strategy directly yourself with support from in market teams and agencies.
Rewards package and remuneration
The total rewards package and remuneration will be based on experience and potential, but is highly competitive and will include share options. We believe in our team being not only the executors of Wefarm’s visions but the makers and owners of it!
As a global business, travel is essential to who we are, and will be a perk of the job. We also host an annual whole company offsite (Wecamp), previously held in Kenya and Uganda. In addition, we have a generous pension package, flexible working environment (within reason of course!), and we value spending time together - boarding the weekly lunch train, sharing some drinks on a Friday and frequent social events throughout the year.
N.B. You must have the right to work in the UK
We will review applicants on an ongoing basis, unfortunately we will only be able to respond to shortlisted candidates.
