We build robots for the next frontier of farming.

We are a venture-backed startup based in Davis, CA, and we build robots to address some of farming’s toughest tasks. Here’s what we can offer to you that you can’t get anywhere else:

✅ The chance to transform an industry and improve the lives of millions of farmworkers.

✅ First-hand exposure to an endless supply of incredibly challenging technical problems.

✅ The pressure to invent cutting-edge solutions to said problems (and mess up along the way).

✅ Limitless career upside: you grow as we grow.

✅ The chance to live in the ‘burbs of sunny California and ride your bike to a farm for work everyday.

✅ A workplace that encourages building, learning and deploying. See your work in the field!
