Full Time
The #1 challenge facing our global food supply system (and incidentally the world’s largest industry, agriculture) is labor scarcity.  Based in Philadelphia and backed by top Agtech and autonomy investors, including S2G, Cibus, FPrime, Toyota Ventures, FFVC, Xplorer, and Radicle, Burro was created to solve the labor shortages facing farmers using robotics.  If pioneering vision-based commercial robots in dynamic unstructured outdoor environments sounds like a challenge that you are interested in, come join us.  We currently have units deployed and demand for our product is accelerating, so we are growing our team.
