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.

Since we were founded in 2014, we have helped farmers manage more than 40 million trees and expanded from 2 to a 70+ people team. We have offices in Cape Town and Los Angeles, with clients in 18 countries, including Africa, USA, Spain and Australia.

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 (handled by the orchard management squad) and yield management (handled by yield squad).

What it’s like to work at Aerobotics

We are a fun loving output-driven team who believes in and values:

  • Delivery > Activity
  • Ideas > Hierarchy
  • Transparency > Ambiguity
  • Meaningful Interactions > Individualism

We have bi-weekly learning sessions where someone shares about something they are doing in the company, as well as monthly sessions talking through our company goals and metrics - where we are versus where we want to be.

Working at Aerobotics you will feel the impact you make on our internal and external clients.

We hang at coffee shops around the area, go to meetups and events, host meetups and for fun we go for team drinks, compete for our 5-a-side soccer team and play board games at the office.
