Join the Ag
At FluroSat, we help agricultural businesses produce more with minimal environmental footprint by making better decisions. Our cloud-based analytics and recommendations engine FluroSense aggregates data across farm equipment, farm recording keeping platforms, satellite imagery, and weather stations, and be feeding this data through agronomic and ML models detects issues with the crop, and recommends precision fixes before the crop stress is visible to a naked eye. “Great tool!” you say? Definitely!
FluroSense engine won AgTech Data Analytics Solution of the Year 2020, and we are always on the lookout for great engineers to grow FluroSense further!
We monitor farmland in more than 15 countries, from wheat and cotton to almonds and apples. In this Computer Vision engineer position we are looking for someone who is equally skilled with “old-shool” morphological approaches to computer vision, as well as knows training of ML models on non-trivial features.
In this position, we are looking for someone to take our “Tree Health” product to the next level. The pipeline includes such CV tasks as identifying locations of individual trees (no matter orchard layout or presence of other vegetation), calculating their radius and health (biomass and chlorophyll), benchmarking these parameters across the orchard, and for each specific variety of trees separately. Some more advanced applications of the “Tree Health” product include yield modeling using a combination of remotely-sensed, weather and ground-truth data collected on the farm.
We are looking for a dynamic individual with strong expertise in Computer Vision and Python, and a passion for meaningful work.
