Job Description

Who We Are

Agritecture is a leading urban agriculture consulting and technology firm, formerly based in NYC and now working remotely, with team members spread across the US and Europe. We are a mission-driven company that aims to accelerate and empower the transition to smarter, more resilient agriculture. We envision - and are working to create - a new era where farming is economically feasible, resilient to climate change, and powered by data-driven strategies.

The Position

Agritecture is seeking an individual to lead the user research, design, and conversion optimization of our digital platform, Agritecture Designer. In this role, you will work closely with our Product Manager, Nadim - who oversees the development of new platform features - and our Sr Digital Marketing Manager, Isabelle - who oversees messaging and driving traffic to the platform. Your primary goal will be to deliver a seamless user experience for our digital clients in their quest to plan the farms of the future.

The position reports to our Director of Digital Strategy, with the goal of reporting directly into our Founder & CEO as performance expectations are met.

Core responsibilities include:

  • Conducting user research, utilizing automated tools/data capture as well as user interviews (20%)
  • Leading the product design process, including updates to existing pages and the creation of new features, from wireframes through to high-fidelity designs (50%)
  • Owning conversion optimization - working with our marketing team to implement tracking, analyze data, and then designing and implementing tests to improve user subscription and retention rates (30%)

You must have the following:

  • 3+ years experience in a product design or UI-UX role
  • Superb attention to detail
  • Strong communication and critical thinking skills
  • Experience implementing conversion optimization best practices and measurement tools

An ideal candidate also has:

  • An understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript to be able to make rudimentary website tweaks
  • An understanding of SEO best practices as they relate specifically to website performance (i.e. page load speed)
  • Experience with product growth marketing tactics - such as: audience segmentation, A/B split tests, website goal tracking & optimization
  • Experience with Agile methodologies and/or product launches

Who You Are

You embody most if not all of the following core characteristics we look for in any candidate:

  • Entrepreneurial mindset - willingness to step outside your comfort zone and embrace challenges & new ideas with a positive mindset
  • Team-first mentality - you think about what’s best for the team and company first
  • Intellectual curiosity - you ask challenging questions and naturally seek out solutions
  • Bias toward action - ability to be decisive even when opinions differ, data is incomplete, etc.
  • Mission-driven - you want your work to have a bigger purpose and positive impact

Why This Matters

Urban and controlled environment agriculture is growing worldwide - and for good reason, given conventional agriculture’s multitude of negative externalities. Through our popular blog & social media, digital platform, and consulting services, Agritecture has contributed key thought leadership to the industry over the years.

Looking toward the future, we believe Agritecture has an opportunity to be one of the most impactful global sources for gaining knowledge, accessing data, and making connections within sustainable agriculture. By helping us further this vision, you will be helping us accelerate the success rate of modern farming endeavors so that entrepreneurs in any corner of the world can grow healthier food with dramatically fewer resources.
