Want to make a difference?
YAGRO is an award winning agritech company based in Cambridge. Since 2015, we have developed software and data tools for farmers to make more profitable and environmentally sustainable business decisions.
In this short time we have worked with farmers covering over a million hectares of arable land, helping them unlock better performance in this challenging environment.
We are a tight team of farmers, technologists, and entrepreneurs. We enjoy working together. We do this first and foremost for the farmer. We are not afraid to speak the truth and challenge dogma.
Up for a challenge?
In 2019 we were awarded grant funding from Innovate UK, the government’s technology funding arm, to develop a comprehensive Commercial Intelligence System – a tool to bring all critical business information in one place for a farm. It is internationally groundbreaking. In 2021 we have started partnerships with leading advisory companies to radically scale our reach and impact to farmers. But the volume and complexity of data is significant, and we need the very best people to help us crack this for farmers.
That’s where you come in.
We are looking for a smart, energetic individual to join us. You will be a key part of our team from day one, working with our large data sets to improve our service.
This will include helping to process and analyse farm business data, and using the gathered data to generate trends and insights, through statistical manipulation.
You will work directly with our customers – some of the UK’s most progressive professional farms and leading farm advisors – and help them uncover insights, and improve their experience of our tools.
You will be in a position to shape the future of our services and the company, we want to hear your ideas.
We will ensure you get the best possible and most complete experience for your continuing career. We will happily offer you all the responsibility you can handle.
What makes you tick?
- You want to make an impact. You’re driven, take initiative and not afraid to take responsibility.
- You have a background in and passion for agriculture.
- You love delving into details, and finding truth and insight from data.
- You have a solid grasp of data tools and statistical analysis.
- You love learning, and sharing your insights.
- You’re interested in software and technology, even though you might not have specific experience in this area.
Who are you?
- A student or early career professional, looking for a new experience in the agriculture industry.
- Eligible to work in the UK
- We don’t define anything else. We value all types of backgrounds and experience. It’s who they’ve made you today that we’re interested in.
Above all, you’re excited by our vision and share our core values: we’re always learning; always looking for new challenges; we inspire each other; we are open and honest; we trust each other and aren’t afraid to give or accept responsibility and autonomy; and we have fun!
To apply, please email your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org together with a brief cover note. We’re interested in what you’ve done, but what we really care about is where you’re going.
