  • Be hands on during design processes and willing to get your “boots dirty”.
  • Accept failure as a part of innovation and rapidly transition to the next idea.
  • Work effectively within a small, high-performing team.
  • Provide good attitude, culture, and drive in order to create the best atmosphere for innovation.
  • Travel can be up to 20%.  Travel will be higher during testing/application seasons.


What You Will Bring

  • Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering degree, Robotics related degree, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, or other relevant technical degree.
  • Proven track record displaying extreme ownership in project success.
  • Proven ability to communicate clearly and openly.
  • Solid decision making skills, and the ability to make decisions with limited direction.
  • Experience with a computer aided drafting.


A Plus If You Have

  • One or more years of experience with the development of solutions for agricultural systems.
  • Experience with both mechanical and software technologies.
  • Agronomic training or background.
  • Experience with hands on work.  In field, shop work, welding, assembling, etc.
