Communication & Marketing Lead

À propos

SOWIT leverages all the power of remote-sensing (drone & satellite), agronomy and AI to provide impact-driven decision support systems to African farmers.

We are filling the agronomic information gap in Africa and helping farmers to optimize most critical operations.

Our solutions allow farmers to acquire critical information such as water stress and nitrogen deficiency to sustainably improve their operations (sowing, fertilization, harvesting).

SOWIT is looking forward to recruting impact-driven talents that believe Africa is key to sustainably addressing the growing food & demographic challenges. Having a bias for action, thinking big and taking ownership are essential principles to SOWIT.

SOWIT is part of the FUTURE 40 aka the 40 most promising startups of Station F over 1000.

Descriptif du poste

Context
Started in 2017 and based in Paris (Station f), Casablanca and Dakar, SOWIT is providing decision support tools to African farmers to help them optimize their most critical operations. Farmers wonder everyday if they really need to fertilize, irrigate or if it is the right time to harvest. Thanks to its drone remote-sensing, statistics and agronomic technologies, SOWIT provides them with the right information at the right moment to decide and drive efficiently their operations.
Africa is the last growth frontier for the world food production as it holds almost 60% of arable available land while showing the lower yields worldwide. To meet the world (and especially African) demand, African farmers would need to increase their production by 70% by 2050 in a complex context of global warming. At SOWIT, we believe data-driven decision are a key component to drive the African green revolution in a sustainable and profitable way for African farmers and the World.
SOWIT is looking for a multitasking Marketing and Communication intern who will basically work across all the Marketing spectrum with a strong focus on operations to help improving SOWIT positioning on the market.
