Business Development Manager

Website Full Harvest

A VC-backed, high-growth food tech startup

Full Harvest, a VC-backed, high-growth food tech startup based in downtown San Francisco, seeks an experienced business development ‘hunter’ and relationship builder to increase sales for our B2B platform.

At Full Harvest, we are disrupting the agriculture space by solving farm food waste and bringing technology to a market where there was none.

We are the first B2B platform connecting farms with food businesses to sell discounted, yet perfectly good surplus and imperfectly shaped produce that would have otherwise gone to waste. A huge environmental problem as approximately 20 billion pounds of produce go to waste in the U.S. annually simply because they are not perfectly shaped for strict retailer standards.

You’ll be an integral member of our super friendly, upbeat, engaged, passionate team, excited about our mission of solving food waste.
