Product Manager

Website FarmlandFinder

FarmlandFinder is a high-growth, venture-backed startup that is bringing transparency to the agricultural real estate industry. Each year, $56 billion of farmland exchanges ownership, most of which is bought and sold entirely offline. This creates an opaque market, which makes it virtually impossible for buyers, sellers and land professionals to make data-driven decisions. FarmlandFinder solves these problems by providing real-time data and transparency through our market intelligence and data management tools. When you join FarmlandFinder, you will be starting on a fun, challenging and growth-filled career opportunity in our Des Moines, Iowa office.
