Are you passionate about sustainable agriculture? Do you want to play a critical role in leading California’s major growers to adopt new methods of environmentally friendly farming?
Suterra is seeking a highly motivated person to lead our grower relations team and continue to accelerate the growth of the world’s leading biopesticide company. If you are enthusiastic about driving agricultural innovation, developing great people, and helping growers deliver a high-quality crop while phasing out the use of traditional insecticides – this is the role for you.
As a successful candidate, you will rely on your experience and skills to help deepen grower relationships and understand current trends, challenges and opportunities across a wide variety of crops. You will build a world-class team with a winning, can-do attitude. And you will become an integral part of a highly successful, cross-functional team that brings exciting new products and services to market.
The position can be located anywhere in California that provides good proximity to large commercial growers in nuts, citrus, vines and tree fruit. It is expected that travel may be as much as 80% during seasonal spikes, primarily to visit growers and provide oversight to your team in the field.
- Minimum 10 years’ experience working in agriculture or related field.
- PCA/CCA or similar accreditation in crop advisory roles, or agriculture is desired.
- Very strong interpersonal, oral and written communication skills – especially as a result of a strong track record in sales, business development or farm management.
- Experience recruiting, hiring, and developing people on high performing teams.
- Strong organizational and planning skills, and the ability to simultaneously manage multi-year strategic plans alongside day-to-day tactical activities.
