At FarmWise, we harness the power of AI to find solutions to combat food production challenges, and help growers thrive in this new farming era. We work hand in hand with growers to understand their constraints, address their priorities, and build products that are changing their lives for good.
We are driven by the desire to have a large impact on the way society operates. We are redefining the way food should be grown, and deploying robots that make it possible. We enjoy tackling challenges far beyond our own area of expertise, and learning new things. We value ownership of decisions, and keep ourselves and others accountable.
We come from different background, with different views of technology and the world. Yet, we work every day together toward the same goal, learning from each other, and enjoying interacting in an ego-free environment. We take our work extremely seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We challenge what "impossible" means. We get excited when facing new seemingly unsolvable problems, and we work hard to bring reality closer to our wildest dreams.
We’re a diverse team of analytical problem-solvers who are deeply motivated by challenges. We value open communication and a dedication to self-improvement.
