Producers Direct is an award winning organisation led by farmers, for farmers. We operate globally with offices in Peru, Kenya and London, working through a network of producer organisations across East Africa and Latin America. We have been awarded grants by leading institutions such as the World Bank to bring together leaders in climate and agricultural data and help farmers respond to climate risks. Through this work we aim to collect and integrate multiple sources of data and present this back to farmers with a personalized, accessible perspective on how to adapt and respond to specific challenges.
We are seeking someone to help us develop our digital tools, Farm Direct and Croppie. Farm Direct is a system that supports farmers and producer organisations to gather and analyse on-farm business data and monitor performance, providing data visualisations via dashboards for farmers and producers organisations. Croppie is a native mobile app which uses AI to derive yield estimations and agronomic advice from photographs of coffee plants. This is a great opportunity to use your software development skills to help deliver vital information to smallholder farmers in a way that they can access, understand and interpret to make life changing decisions on their farms.
