Apollo Agriculture is the commercial farming platform for small-scale farmers that helps farmers maximize their profits. Apollo uses agronomic machine learning, remote sensing, and mobile phones to deliver financing, high-quality farm products, and optimized advice that can more than double farm profitability, starting in Kenya. Our team brings together technology and operations experience from The Climate Corporation (acquired for USD ~$1 Billion), ACRE, Google, and One Acre Fund. We value the evangelical pursuit of mission with a pragmatic approach, humility in the face of challenge, active discussion of disagreements, and considerate listening.
Reporting to the Repayments lead, the Malipo Recovery Call Center Agent’s primary responsibility is to ensure effective and efficient collection of outstanding debts from farmers. You will also be customers’ primary point of contact throughout the season and you will therefore need to strike the appropriate balance of toughness and compassion to ensure that customers return to the farm with Apollo year after year. To succeed, you will need to work hard, quickly incorporate constructive feedback, seek opportunities to learn new skills, collaborate with your teammates, and effectively use dashboards to analyze and improve your own performance.
