Pula partnered with Rippleworks to define a world class CTO profile

Pula Advisors is an agricultural insurance and technology company that designs and delivers innovative agricultural insurance and digital products to help smallholder farmers endure yield risks, improve their farming practices, and bolster their incomes over time. To date, they’ve insured more than 4.49 million farmers across 10 countries.

Pula’s top priority was defining the profile of their next technology executive. Pula partnered with Rippleworks to create a job description for a high-impact CTO.

Rippleworks played a key role in helping us identify our first CTO through crafting a compelling JD, shortlisting candidates and designing interviews that helped us land on the right candidate.

We are very happy with the results of our collaboration.
