Job Description


Join the A.I. company tackling some of the most consequential problems facing the world today. Gro Intelligence is a fast-growing, mission-driven data and analytics company dedicated to understanding the interconnected global markets for all agricultural products. From the food we eat to the clothing we wear and the gasoline in millions of cars across the globe, agriculture touches our daily existence like few other industries.  And it’s being completely upended by climate change, trade wars, finite global resources, fickle public policies, a growing population and ever-changing human tastes (e.g. organic produce, plant-based proteins, etc).  Come help us understand the complex interplay of these various forces and their ripple effect on global markets. 

With offices in both New York and Nairobi, and the financial backing of prominent investors including TPG Growth and Data Collective, Gro is a diverse team of more than 70 technologists, scientists, and business professionals.  Our team is growing rapidly and we’re looking for highly motivated, intellectually curious individuals with a shared commitment to building software that impacts the world on the most basic level. 

Gro has been featured prominently alongside the company’s founder and CEO in several recent outlets including Recode Decode with Kara Swisher, Fast Company’s Most Creative People, Fortune’s Most Powerful Women in Business, and Vanity Fair’s Inside the Hive with Nick Bilton.  

We are looking for highly-motivated, intellectually curious problem solvers who are hungry for personal growth. Successful candidates are humble and eager to learn. They should also enjoy working in a fast-paced, demanding, and constantly evolving entrepreneurial environment. Importantly, they are also fun to work with and have on a team - we have a strict ‘no jerks’ policy at Gro.


What You'll Do:

  • Oversee all personnel files including creating and maintaining various databases and spreadsheet files relating to employee information for analysis.

  • Assist with the implementation of human resources policies and procedures.

  • Source candidates by using databases and social media

  • Manage communication with potential candidates.

  • Arrange and conduct phone interviews and schedule in-person interviews.

  • Participate in projects, duties, and other administrative tasks as assigned.

What You Have:

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.

  • Ability to maintain the confidentiality of highly sensitive HR information.

  • Ability to work well independently and in a team-oriented environment.

  • Ability to multi-task, prioritize, and work in a fast-paced environment.

Perks of working at Gro:

  • Corporate Seamless account – lunch paid for daily 

  • Flexible and fun start-up environment
