Job title: Co-Founder/Advisor
Location: Based in London/Cambridge
Company: Croptimise, a fast-growing agritech start-up
Who are we?
Croptimise is an early stage start-up looking at using computer vision and machine learning to give insight on crop pests and diseases to farmers and agronomists. We are a team with strong technical backgrounds that have successfully raised pre-seed investment from the Carbon13 accelerator program in Cambridge, and also won a position in the third cohort on the Greenhouse accelerator at Imperial College London. Agriculture is responsible for up to 15% of all GHG emissions and every year up to 40% of crop production is lost to pests worth around $300billion. We believe better pest insight on farms and a decrease in crop waste can bring about a positive Carbon impact
What are we looking for in this role?
We are looking for an advisor or a co-Founder depending on your circumstances / ambition. For an ideal candidate we are looking for the following:
You might have connections in agriculture or regenerative agriculture
Experience working with soft fruit or/and arable farmers
Most definitely an interest in using technology to innovate in this space
Previous experience in scaling up and start-up fundraising is highly desirable
Business development experience and experience within the agricultural sector
This role can also be potentially remote

For the advisor role, it will be a small equity vested over time. For a co-Founder role, it will be equity plus a salary once the company has raised its seed funding in the summer this year.
