VP of Growth and Customer Care

There are 2.7B deskless workers globally, and one-third work in agriculture.. Software tools built for white-collar workers just don’t work for agricultural workers who are often lower literacy, migrant, unbanked, and not accustomed to using email and apps. That’s where we come in. 

Ganaz is the workforce management platform for the $1+ trillion North American agriculture and food manufacturing industry. We help create safer, fairer and more profitable workplaces while providing the financial services needed to help workers forge a path out of poverty.  Our software currently helps employers onboard, train, communicate with, and retain their multilingual, deskless workforce. We will soon be launching paycards with integrated remittances, saving money for both workers and employers in this large and underserved market. We’re working with some of the largest and best brands in the industry, and our product offering and customer base is growing fast.

The Role

The VP of Growth and Customer Care will lead our sales, marketing, customer success and customer support functions, with primary responsibility for revenue growth, customer retention and customer satisfaction. At Ganaz, our customers are both business (farms & food manufacturers), and the workers who use our financial services, so this role will lead the strategy and teams that grow our revenue and fulfill our mission by serving both businesses and agriculture workers. This role reports directly to the CEO and will have a huge impact on the success of our company and the impact we can make in our industries and in the lives of workers.
