Supply Chain Manager

Sioux Falls, United States

ABOUT FBN

 

Farmers Business Network (FBNSM) is a rapidly growing data and commerce platform for farmers. FBN brings data science, machine learning, and peer-to-peer networking to agriculture. We’re creating the fastest-growing network of farmers in America, who in turn have already built the largest geospatial farm dataset - nine million acres worth (and still growing). The data have proved to be incredibly potent and farmers have asked for other ways FBN can be an independent and unbiased business partner to their farms.

FBN works by gathering disparate data directly from its farmer members, then analyzes the data and converts it into insights and perspectives that can help farmers make better decisions, manage risk and ultimately increase the profitability of their farming operations.  FBN uses this information to empower farmers by creating network and data driven commerce opportunities for farmers that save them money on inputs, capital and marketing.

FBN is an advocate for the farmer and was created by farmers, for farmers. We are proudly Farmers FirstTM. We are well-capitalized by leading venture capital firms, including Google Ventures and Kleiner Perkins. Our work culture is dynamic and non-hierarchical (we need to be in order to operate effectively across 15 states), offering competitive compensation and benefits.
