Job Description
We an Agriculture marketplace in Nigeria. Last year our platform fed Nigerians for 1 day – this year we target to feed Nigerians for 7 days and to take that to the rest of Africa from 2021. We have done this by building a marketplace platform that brings together key actors in the Agriculture market-place; Farmers, Community Aggregators, Warehousing companies, Logistics companies, Food Processors. The model is 24 months old, in 2018 our first yr we delivered 5,000MT of grains which increased Into 38,000MT. We fed Nigeria for 1 day in 2019.
We could have delivered double the MT but our key bottlenecks were ;
Logistics
:
The funnel of logistics is Dispatch, In-Transit, On-Queue at the site, Accepted. On average in the last 6 months of 2019, we dispatched from the Community Aggregators (who aggregate produce from the farmers). This funnel efficiency would need to be operating at 90% of dispatched versus delivered.
The optimal planning process to ensure a cadence of monthly to weekly to daily planning of optimal routes and eventual operating metrics reporting to allow critical insights to become clear for action.
Some critical functions of the model like pricing performed based on a not fully developed and not optimal process that was losing us margins In the last 2 months of the year we have worked with a top consulting firm to look at the bottlenecks and define ways of working, tools, frameworks to use to increase our logistics capacity, plan better to increase our delivery rate and price in a more optimal way. We have also established a control tower which ensures planning, performance analysis and reporting happens seamlessly.
We have started to operationalize these in the business and you as the successful Business Analyst would become part of this control tower team and work with Cellulant in Nigeria to blitz scale our model and feed Nigerians for 7 days in 2020.
What you do on a day to day ;
Business Analyst – Pricing & Trading desk
You are the custodian of the Market Asset Pricing Model and Logistics pricing and negotiation framework. You work closely with the Head of the control tower to ensure we are pricing monthly,
weekly and daily trades efficiently and guarding out margins to achieve our goals. Critical pricing floors and ceilings are determined here and escalations for dealing with outliers are clear with a smooth process of escalation to COO and CEO.
You are a key partner to the logistics manager to make sure the long term and short term contracting of logistics companies is well priced with the right routes and levels of profitability taking care of in those routes. This is in turn supported by triangulating your efforts with the Food Processors and Community
Aggregators teams for pricing ensuring that the BD teams have clarity on what to negotiate for.
You work with the Tech team which is working on our version 2 of the platform Agrikore 2.0 to automate the MAPM into the platform.
