We have plenty of data to work with – across our R&D and production sites, every year we will seed and harvest billions of plants, we collect real-time climate and water conditions, measurements on plant growth, harvest weight, and post-harvest organoleptic and microbiological measurements. We now need to hire a Head of Data who can help build a team to tackle problems that are critical to the business and our growth, using the data that we have available.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for our first data hire. You’ll be joining the team and creating the tools to meet our business needs. You will need to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in to deliver value from the get-go, making the data we collect less error-prone and easier to analyse. We’ll need you to be hands-on with an eye to leading a world-class team.
You’ll need to:
You will report directly to Tom Webster, who co-founded GrowUp 9 years ago and is now Product Director. You’ll be working closely alongside the R&D and Operations teams.
The role will be based either out of London or Cambridge. You’ll be expected to spend at least 3 days a week at our Research Centre in Cambridge for the first 6 months, and 2 days a week thereafter.
We’re on a mission to apply knowledge and science to grow the right plants, in the right place, in the right way.
We’re a leading UK vertical farming company who have spent almost a decade growing salads at three vertical farms, bringing customers restaurant-quality leafy greens that stay fresher for longer. Salads are just the tip of the iceberg – our future is more farms, more crops, and the technology to make vertical farming the norm.
We’re passionate about getting people to rethink their salads and delivering healthy, affordable, British-grown food to more customers, with a lighter environmental footprint and a more resilient year-round supply chain. We bring purpose and impact to the fresh produce category and expect a transformational impact over the next decade as we add in new crops.
We are a fast-growing dynamic team, that cares passionately about what we’re doing. We’re interested in people who want to help turn food production on its head, who are naturally entrepreneurial, commercial and restless to make it happen.
We have developed industry-leading technology integrated with renewable energy to drive down the costs and carbon footprint of vertical farming while cutting down on food waste in the supply chain and at home. Our fourth farm, currently under construction in Sandwich, Kent, is expected to begin delivering its first harvest of ready-to-eat salad leaves to U.K. supermarket shelves in the 22/23 winter season.
Our team is the most valuable part of our business – our success is defined by the hard- working, brilliant and enthusiastic people we employ. Our recruitment process and employment decisions are based on our business needs, job requirements and individual qualifications. We provide equal employment opportunities to all applicants without regard to race, colour, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin or disability status. We don’t tolerate discrimination or harassment based on any of these characteristics and we encourage all suitable applicants to apply for open positions.
