If you love working in a dynamic environment where the demands are high, where you will be challenged every day and where you will get to deliver solutions that positively impact millions of farmers in emerging markets, then this role is for you!
We are looking for an exceptional and best-in-class Accountant to build the finance and accounting systems to support our goal of building a billion dollar business that protects and advises rural farming communities across Africa and Asia.
Pula is an early stage insurance technology company with a radically different approach to insurance. We target people who have never bought insurance before, starting with farmers. Most of our customers are semi-literate so our products must be simple to understand, easy to access and distribute, and cost effective.
Most of the poor in developing countries rely on farming as their main source of income and food. Farmers experience risks every day as an inherent part of their livelihood, whether caused by climate shocks such as drought or flooding or pest and disease.
These risks currently prevent these farmers from investing in their farms, resulting in low yields, food insecurity and poverty. We look to provide technology enabled insurance products and related agronomy and climate advisory services that enable farmers to cover most of their production risks and ensure they maximize their harvest and hence secure their income.
In the last 4 years, Pula has developed insurance solutions that in 2016 reached over 600,000 farmers across 9 countries in Africa, we are on rapid growth path to reach one million farmers by the end of this year and are now looking to expand to Asia. For a brief on our work so far have a look at:
In the next 5 years we will further build on satellite and remote sensing technology to build our insurance and advisory products and look to leverage cutting edge technology solutions to deliver our product to millions of farmers across Africa and Asia.
