About Plenty

Plenty is on a mission to make fresh, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables more accessible to everyone.  Our cutting-edge indoor, vertical farms produce extraordinary yields using a fraction of the land and water outdoor farms need.  Nutrient-rich, mouth-watering and locally grown, our crops help people, communities and our planet to be healthier and more resilient.

The people and teams who make up Plenty are at the core of how we do this.  We are a collaborative and innovative bunch. We are passionate about our contributions to Plenty, the communities around us and our planet, but never take ourselves too seriously.  We’re down to Earth, we grow together, and we always find a way.  Most importantly, we’re here to improve the lives of plants, people and our planet.

About the Role

The Associate Manager, Business Operations will be a strategic thinker who is excited to execute and have an immediate day-to-day impact on the whole company. This individual will work on a variety of high impact initiatives to implement the company’s corporate strategy and keep us on-track to achieving our goals. This Associate Manager will develop insightful reporting tools that empower executives with the right information to make decisions, drive analysis and preparation for internal and external meetings, inform corporate strategy and decision making, manage and resource key internal projects requested by the CEO, and work directly with Plenty’s senior management team to do all of the above. 

The Associate Manager will join the Office of the CEO and report to the Chief of Staff, who works directly under the CEO. This is a high visibility role; the Associate Manager’s time will be spent across every team at Plenty, providing broad exposure to the entire business and thus creating an opportunity to develop a career in agriculture, technology, sustainability, and business.
