The Agoro Carbon Alliance is creating a new solution to our planet’s carbon challenge that’s grounded in the soil. Agoro Carbon addresses a key global problem, the impact of agriculture’s global greenhouse gas emissions on our climate and the implementation of sustainable carbon capturing potential at farm while providing a new income stream to farmers worldwide. Our passion lies in developing a global carbon alliance built around a portfolio of carbon smart farming practices that help farmers reduce their environmental footprint. As one of the early movers in this market, we are using our knowledge on carbon practices, our global presence, our digital and data capabilities and our strong relationships with the food value chain to pioneer an industry shaping business.

  • Oversee the over-arching solution design and ensure coherence in the design across different teams

  • Drive building up a passionate and entrepreneurial team of product designers who work collaboratively on the different components of the product eco-system to help growers transition to carbon farming practices

  • You enjoy pioneering new solutions and have experience in leading the design of a product from early concept testing to launch

  • Comfortable leading the over-arching design vision with a team of product designers, and also playing the role of mentor and career coach.

  • Strong result orientation, personal drive and pro-activeness

  • You can articulate design decisions and trade-offs to other team members

  • Aligned with our principles: agile, customer-centric, lean, service-oriented architecture, self-organization, transparency.

  • You are passionate for sustainability, climate smart actions and agriculture

Why us?


  • Be a key member of a fully cross functional team, where you and your team define your own objectives, which align with your mission and the business strategy, shape your own roadmap and work to deliver value each and every step along the way 

  • Be a key contributor in sustainable global change, reducing carbon emissions while financially supporting growers and enabling the global transformation of farming and its impact on the environment. 

  • You would be working with a globally dispersed and diverse team.  We adopt a virtual-first approach, where we encourage face-to-face collaboration, but are focused on recruiting the best talent. 

  • Support for personal development with internal knowledge sharing via a Udemy subscription to support learning and continuous improvement.
