Farmers’ Business Network: Data Scientist Position
San Carlos, CA
How can we sustainably feed the world? With the population set to reach nine billion by 2050 and available farmland decreasing, the odds are stacked against us. This problem falls squarely on the shoulders of farmers, who are increasingly working harder for less. FBN helps farmers to solve these problems.
Farmers are often forced to make key decisions in the face of significant uncertainty about their impact. FBN applies technology and data science to this challenge. We’re building the world’s largest agronomic dataset – made up of billions of data points, gathered from sophisticated sensors on farm equipment. The network effect of farmers sharing their data allows us to deliver unprecedented analyses that help farmers make data-driven decisions – we’re not just building new technology, we’re also making new agricultural scientific discoveries.
We’re looking for data scientists who are enthusiastic about applying big data to help farmers!
