We’re Proximity Designs, an award-winning social enterprise based in Yangon, Myanmar. We design, make and deliver affordable, income-boosting products and services that can double smallholder farmers’ income. Our products and services—irrigation and farm technologies, farm finance, and advisory services—are accessible to 80 percent of Myanmar’s rural population in more than 10,000 villages.

Your Mission

We’re deepening and expanding our impact across rural Myanmar.

We’re seeking a marketing guru to help up share updates with our global investor network, necessary to securing funding critical to our growth.

Meet your team

Primarily based in our marketing team, you’ll be collaborating with creative individuals who are experimenting with multi-media channels to keep our customers, potential employees, and global investors and design partners informed. You’ll also be immersed in our multi-disciplinary, forward-thinking team that manages relationships with our global investor network. Both of these teams collaborate closely with energetic individuals across our entire business, including traveling to villages with our dedicated rural staff, who are passionate about impact and have a strong empathy for our customers.

You will:

•       Empathy. You can put yourself in other’s shoes. You’re passionate about the social enterprise model and want to support innovative ventures that improve the lives of thousands of farmers across Myanmar.
•       Team Player. You work and play well with others, and enjoy seeing the impact of our work as a team.
