Many of us don’t realise that pathogens in shrimp production cause $6B of global loss per annum. We at Genics are a newly formed AgTech startup tackling global prawn farming biosecurity head on.
Via our proprietary smart detection system, we significantly cut testing costs for prawn farmers and transform how shrimp diseases are managed globally. Founded by veteran Australian scientists, we’re on a mission to create a new era in pathogen detection.
We have a tight knit and highly collaborative team and are looking for people as passionate as we are to grow our business and make impact on a global scale.
What we’re looking for
We are looking for a creative, resourceful, and organised communications pro to join our growing start-up. As our first communications hire, you will play a key role in defining our marketing strategy and promoting our brand.
You’re up with the latest digital marketing and media monitoring tools (we are heavy users of LinkedIn for marketing purposes), you’re not afraid of experimentation, and are just as happy drafting content as you are in strategic planning discussions.
You’re excited by the opportunity to build this part of our business from the ground up, and don’t mind rolling up your sleeves to make it happen. You will be reporting to our CEO, Melony Sellars.
Technical skills / qualifications
Our people and culture underpin our success in delivering excellent end to end solutions for our clients. We are guided by our values and seek to be global leaders in the delivery of high quality data and customised solutions.
Our people bring a diverse and creative mix of skills, and together we are motivated by our enthusiasm to deliver food security and sustainability to our world. We believe we can transform farming practices globally by helping farmers better understand and mitigate risks from pathogens in culture systems.
