Product Manager, Data

Product | Nairobi, Kenya | Full Time

Job Description

Join the A.I. company tackling some of the most consequential problems facing the world today. Gro Intelligence is a fast-growing, mission-driven data and analytics company dedicated to understanding the interconnected global markets for all agricultural products. From the food we eat to the clothing we wear and the gasoline in millions of cars across the globe, agriculture touches our daily existence like few other industries.  And it’s being completely upended by climate change, trade wars, finite global resources, fickle public policies, a growing population and ever-changing human tastes (e.g. organic produce, plant-based proteins, etc).  Come help us understand the complex interplay of these various forces and their ripple effect on global markets. 

With offices in both New York and Nairobi, and the financial backing of prominent investors including TPG Growth and Data Collective, Gro is a diverse team of more than 70 engineers, scientists, and business professionals.  Our team is growing rapidly and we’re looking for highly motivated, intellectually curious individuals with a shared commitment to building software that impacts the world on the most basic level. 

Gro has been featured prominently alongside the company’s founder and CEO in several recent outlets including Recode Decode with Kara Swisher, Fast Company’s Most Creative People, Fortune’s Most Powerful Women in Business, and Vanity Fair’s Inside the Hive with Nick Bilton.  

We’re looking for a seasoned Product Manager to work with our Data Integration team on enhancing Gro’s data asset and accelerating our ETL process.

What You'll Do:

  • Work with engineering to continuously improve Gro’s end-to-end data asset value chain.

  • Work closely with Gro’s industry analysts to identify and evaluate data sources in support of Gro platform use cases.

  • Oversee ingesting and mapping the data to Gro’s ontology.

  • Build new proprietary data streams

  • Support Gro’s engineering team throughout sprint cycles by proactively removing roadblocks that may impact quality of service and on-time delivery

  • Define, prioritize, and communicate short- and long-term product goals

What You Have:

  • 4+ years of experience in product management roles, ideally for companies building data-intensive products

  • Excellent communication skills and ability to build strong relationships across distinct stakeholders

  • Analytical chops and know-how in building data-driven decision and measurement systems

  • Strong attention to detail, with an ability take a step back and understand the bigger picture

  • Experience writing product requirements documents

  • Intermediate-level Python programming

  • Experience with SQL

Bonus Points for Experience with:

  • Big data processing systems 

  • Agricultural, climate and weather data
