Job Description:

Join us at Verdant Robotics as we revolutionize agriculture via robotics and AI. We use computer vision and machine learning to understand every part of every plant at a massive scale - and with automated robotics, we close the loop and act on that information in real-time. Our unique digital-twin and mm-accurate spraying technology unlocks phenomenal increases in productivity and efficiency - helping farmers grow more profitability with less inputs, realizing savings from day one.
Our office is located in Hayward, CA about a 25-30 minute average commute from most places in the Bay Area. We offer competitive pay and a great team environment.

You will own and make decisions about infrastructure. Most importantly, you should be driven to make an impact with your work by rapidly reaching the market with a new robotic system doing useful work for paying customers.
