Data Analyst - Internship

The agricultural industry is undergoing a profound change. Data and technology give farmers the opportunity to reverse the long-term decline in profitability, safeguard the environment, and open a new era of smart professional farming.

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 the farming industry to make more profitable and sustainable business decisions.

We are the industry’s trusted innovators in data. 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?

We have a great problem to solve: we have partnered with leading farm advisory companies to drive adoption of our technology across UK farms, and unlock ever greater value from data. We need to rapidly scale our data capacity to reach these Partners and farming costumers demands – that’s where you come in.

We are looking for a smart, driven individual to join us. You will be a key part of our team from day one, working with our large data sets to feed and improve our services. 

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 push the boundaries of our automated data processing and insights creation, using the latest database tools including machine learning.

You will be in a position to shape the future of our services and the company, we want to hear your ideas.
The role is flexible, and we will tailor it around your skills and preferences, ensuring you get the best possible experience for your continuing career. For the right person, there is rapid opportunity for development in YAGRO. We will happily offer you all the responsibilities you can handle.

  • 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.
  • You’re interested in software and technology, even though you might not have specific experience in this area.
