Business Development Associate

We are a relatively new start up in a very exciting phase of our business (launching our product!) looking to add some high energy and passionate people to our team.

Our business was developed to support local farming by creating a new online trading platform and marketing service for farmers everywhere. From the buying and selling of livestock, feed, goods, equipment and services, to the development of a consumer facing website with the ability to sell direct to the local community. Small farmers around the country, especially those in areas underserved by live auctions need faster and easier access to everything necessary for running a farm and selling what they produce.

Our vision for the future incorporates the continued expansion of the platform to provide our farmers with real solutions to the problems they face on a daily basis. From direct sale capability to distribution logistics solutions, we are dedicated to facilitating the ongoing revival of local farming and the local foods movement. This means making farming a more profitable venture, which is what is here to do.

We are ideally looking for people who are outgoing, personable and have experience with farming. We are a technology based company so experience with computers, the internet, social media marketing and anything else tech related is a must.

Your duties will vary widely and will always be changing. We need people to help with everything from social media marketing, customer outreach, promotion, sales, office organization and administrative duties. Being a team player is a must as one day you may be in the office organizing paperwork, developing new systems for office management and updating our Facebook page while the next you could be out in a field talking with a group of farmers.

We are looking for people with the following skill sets:
– Experience in Agriculture
– Experience utilizing social media
– Proficiency with the Microsoft Office Suite
– Strong communication skills
– Critical thinking and problem solving skills
– Diligence, passion for local food and farming, and a strong work ethic
– Ability to be a team player, changing roles and switching gears to accomplish organizational goals
