Gramophone, the Indian full stack agri-tech company is gearing to double its team to be able to fulfil the growing demand over the next six to eight months. It is on the lookout for over 300 professionals across technology, product, operations and marketing.
Tauseef Khan, co-founder and CEO, Gramophone points out that “building a successful full-stack agritech business involves building intelligence in agronomy, an e-commerce venture, a logistics platform as well as P2P online marketplace”.
Therefore, there is need for “massive deployment of technology as well as a layer of data science that provides granular insights on how we can be more frugal and effective across these stacks”.
“Given the massive momentum being witnessed on the business front as well as our expansion plans, we are looking to hire top-of-the line talent across technology, product, and marketing teams,” says Khan.
Khan reveals that Gramophone is also looking for “senior industry leaders” for “key CXO/VP-level positions”.
Having witnessed 6X growth in its revenues over the last year, it is looking to onboard talent in key management positions in its growth and strategy teams as well. The Company will also hire data scientists, data engineers, product managers and technology professionals.
