Let’s change the face of agriculture!

Who We Are

At FarmWise, we are building autonomous farming robots to help agriculture become more sustainable.  With our current team of 25, we've already deployed our first wave of robots, generating revenue and completing valuable work for farmers.   

After the tremendous success of our first deployment on farms in California, we raised a Series A round of funding, led by Calibrate Ventures, to accelerate our engineering development and operations in the US and abroad.  

Come work on technology that will change food production forever!
