Wefarm is the world’s largest knowledge network and marketplace for small-scale farmers. Wefarm enables farmers to share and access vital info, products and services without requiring any access to the internet.
Small-scale agriculture is the biggest industry on earth, with more than a billion farmers globally supplying 80% 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.
Since our launch in 2015 we have grown to serve 1.5 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!
About the Role

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 get together (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.
Unfortunately, we will only be able to respond to shortlisted candidates.
