Our Mission at Scythe
Humanity has lost touch with nature - we’ve traded dirt and trees for asphalt, and we rely on loud, polluting, gas-powered machines to care for our limited natural spaces.

Scythe is forging a new future by building intelligent, all-electric machines that unlock a new superpower: the ability to care for the outdoors pollution-free at enormous scale. From today’s first steps in landscape maintenance to full-fledged re-terraforming in the future, Scythe is pioneering autonomous machinery that supports the ingenuity of humans, multiplying our power to nurture our planet.

At Scythe, you’ll work with a team of world-class experts in everything from computer vision to mechanical engineering, pushing the limits of possibility and growing by overcoming hurdles along the way. 

The world needs what we’re building—come join us in making it a reality.

You'll work in concert with teammates from across the company to build out our mobile offerings. We expect you to be broadly experienced, to be able to "see around corners", to thrive in a fast-paced, self-managed environment, and to be a collaborative teammate who enjoys helping Scythe realize its big mission.
