Plenty is on a mission to make fresh, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables more accessible to everyone. Our cutting-edge indoor, vertical farms produce extraordinary yields using a fraction of the land and water outdoor farms need. Nutrient-rich, mouth-watering and locally grown, our crops help people, communities and our planet to be healthier and more resilient.
The people and teams who make up Plenty are at the core of how we do this. We are a collaborative and innovative bunch. We are passionate about our contributions to Plenty, the communities around us and our planet, but never take ourselves too seriously. We’re down to Earth, we grow together, and we always find a way. Most importantly, we’re here to improve the lives of plants, people and our planet.

- Track record of being adaptable to changing priorities - things can change quickly here and we can't miss a beet (we like veggie puns and all puns really)
- Eagerness to dive into business priorities to ensure that hiring priorities are aligned
- Experience using an Applicant Tracking System -- we use Greenhouse, but we know that if you’ve used any ATS, you’ll be up to speed in no time
- A lifelong learner, you love digging into the roles you recruit for and getting to know the teams you partner with
- You communicate well both verbally and in writing, meaning your follow up is timely and your point is communicated effectively and respectfully
