Summary

Why Aerobotics

Farming is a risky business with pests and disease often reducing a farmer’s yields. Over the past few years, we have built solutions that enable drones to do the work in minutes that used to take farmers hours.

Our vision: To provide intelligent tools to feed the world

Our mission: We are a data analytics company using aerial imagery and machine learning algorithms to optimise crop performance for farmers around the world. We make it possible for farmers to interact with this data through our mobile and web applications

History: Since founded in 2014 by James Paterson (CEO) and Benji Meltzer (CTO) we have grown to a 85+ people team

Our impact to date: We have helped farmers manage over 65 million trees with clients in 18 countries, including Africa, USA, Spain, and Australia.

Where we are based: Right now we have 2 main offices in Cape Town and Los Angeles, in addition to this we have Business Development Managers and Sales people on the ground across the world - working remotely and mostly spending their days with our farmers.

What we do

We are a data analytics company that uses aerial imagery and machine learning algorithms to optimise crop performance for farmers around the world. Farmers are able to interact with this data through our mobile and web apps.

How we work

Our teams are split into what we call “squads”, each with a focus on a particular area of the business. Squads are cross-functional, typically consisting of frontend (web/mobile) and backend engineers, data scientists and data engineers. We are agile and use CI/CD to often deploy into production multiple times per day.

The two main items we try to help farmers with are early problem detection and yield management.
