Farmer.Community is a peer-to-peer digital knowledge sharing network.

Unlocking the collective impact of climate-smart farming resources and mobile technology. Connecting farmers with one another and the power of knowledge

We are an early stage social enterprise startup, currently building a network prototype. The pilot launch for farmers in the Caribbean is scheduled for early 2023.

The problem we are currently facing is lack of human resources. In order to have a successful release of the upcoming Beta Community Launch we need a few more hands on deck in the following areas: digital marketing, project management, social media marketing, community engagement and content coordination.

The Community Engagement & Content involves the following:

  • provide assistance in the launch of a new digital P2P community
  • support with the planning, execution and content development for the digital Community.
  • apply user feedback, community listening and management - to grow and nurture the digital platform and ensure that everything we do is grounded in member's needs - applying understanding, feedback and insights.
  • provide engagement improvements and support for the community. Creating and implementing digital strategies to help scale community participation, connections and content sharing.

Some of the tasks needed are:

  • Review project content and user experience, recommend enhancements or new UX
  • Evaluate onboarding process for digital community and recommend new efficiencies
  • Develop digital welcome initiatives for new community members to increase member engagement and interaction. Including easy solutions to guide user on "how to" use the digital platform.
  • Suggest ways to more efficiently deliver community knowledge sharing partner's digital assets, events and information.
  • Devise enhanced methods to encourage member participation in member polls, Q&As, webinars, events and more as we scale the community

Good skills to have:

  • Passion for entrepreneurship and believe the world needs more change-makers and innovators.
  • UX and design thinking skills
  • Client relations skills
  • Innovative strategic thinking; able to identify gaps and potential solutions
  • Ability to create and revise project timelines and workflows
  • Up-to-date on the trends and technologies in digital communication
  • Ability to build strong working relationships across teams
  • Skills and/or experience copywriting; posts, reviews, emails and newsletters
  • Able to adapt UX and design thinking in a variety of formats - from written, to audio, to video
  • Able to handle ambiguity and flexible priorities working with a small social enterprise startup
