Job Summary
You serve our Farmers and Market Agents directly, answering all questions they have, explaining how to use our Mobile App(s) and Farmer Platform, and driving all aspects of Farmer and Market Agent support services. Because we are a technology company, Lima Links will strive to develop innovative and relevant products and services for Farmers and those that want to serve Farmers well.
