Your Mission:

Digital Marketing is critical to how Proximity Designs delivers impact, now and in the future. Whether it is communicating news about income-boosting products, bringing agronomy practices directly to farmers' fingertips or generating leads for our on-the-ground team to follow up on, it allows us to scale what we do efficiently and quickly. Notably, the function operationalizes and delivers farm practices to small farmers, bringing in a significant percentage of our customers, through our chatbot and Facebook outreach strategy.

You will have your finger on the pulse of the evolving digital landscape, and take action to pivot our plans as customer behaviors shift. 


You, along with your team, will expertly promote our free and paid products and services digitally and drive them to conversion. You will lead our efforts as we continue to test, learn and develop a digital marketing approach that truly makes a difference in the lives of small farm families in Myanmar.

About Proximity

Proximity Designs is tackling globally important issues at the nexus of climate change, deep poverty, food insecurity, inequality and political conflict. We do this by helping hundreds of thousands of rural people care for their soils, grow more food, earn better incomes and build resilience against climate change. We address a critical government and market failure, by designing and delivering products and services needed to make farming families more productive, profitable and environmentally sustainable. We offer our low-income customers a suite of innovative and affordable farm solutions such as micro-irrigation systems, bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides, soil health testing kits, on-call crop protection services and farm loans. 

Over the past 18 years, we’ve generated USD 782 million in additional income for 1.2 million poor farming households across rural Myanmar. With this income increase, farmers can invest in their future: education for their children, more nutritious food, better healthcare and investments in their farms or other village enterprises.
