Enables farmers to share and access information using Clojure!
Wefarm is the world’s largest platform connecting the small-scale farming community 🌾Millions of farmers, retailers, and brands come together on Wefarm to grow their businesses 🚜
Small-scale farming is one of the largest and most important industries in the world, with over one billion people globally involved in it 🌍We’re working towards connecting this community so small-scale farmers can gain a better position in global agricultural supply chains. Some of the world’s leading VCs are backing us on this mission, including True Ventures in Silicon Valley.
Since our launch in 2015, we’ve grown to serve over two million farmers across Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. Our platform has facilitated the (free) exchange of over 18 million messages to share knowledge, generated over $5 million in marketplace sales, and sold nearly half a million products.
So far, we’ve partnered with 100+ brands to give our members fair prices on the quality products they are looking for.
Our next milestone is to have 100 million farmers benefiting from Wefarm 📈Join us and be part of our mission to build an ecosystem for global agriculture, with the farmer at the centre.
Operating at the cross-section between technical feasibility, business viability and user value, the Tech Lead is a pivotal role for Wefarm's product development workflow. You operate within a cross-functional squad and work very closely with a Product Manager and Designer to make sure we're solving challenges that will bring the greatest value to our members. You help design tests that give us the data we need to bring learnings into our scalable solutions and are held accountable for the success of the technology and the quality of the engineering behind the products being developed. You propose innovative solutions, help steer the squad to the most impactful solutions and work with the other Engineers to drive their implementation, maintenance and support.
You will be held accountable for the success of the technology and the quality of the engineering behind the products being developed and focuses on the following outcomes

Over 1 billion smallholder farmers produce 80% of the world's food, and four of the five most traded commodities on earth, yet the vast majority lack access to the internet and even basic information to help them solve problems or share ideas. No one has built a platform for these farmers. Until Wefarm. Wefarm is already the world’s largest farmer-to-farmer digital network, with more than 1 million farmers using our ecosystem in Kenya and Uganda alone. Our farmers share more than 40,000 questions and answers every day. Farmers connect with one another to solve problems, share ideas, and spread innovation, for free, and without needing an internet connection (Wefarm works even through SMS). Utilising the latest machine learning technology, Wefarm’s service gets bespoke, crowd- sourced information to help farmers increase yields, gain insight into pricing, tackle the effects of climate change, source the best quality seeds, fertiliser, and loans and diversify their agricultural interests. With the smallholder global agricultural market valued at over 400 billion USD, our vision is to create a digital online/ offline ecosystem for global smallholder agriculture. WeFarm has won Google’s prestigious Impact Challenge Award, the MEFFYS Award for Innovation in Technology, the Messaging and SMS World Awards’ Best SMS Solution, Business Rocks’ Global Startup Pitch Battle, Chivas Regal’s The Venture Competition’s UK prize, and 2nd place in their Global final and the European Union Commission’s Ideas from Europe Prize.
