Extend the capabilities of our robotic fleet and greenhouse control systems.
In a world increasingly impacted by climate change, pollution, and population growth, conventional production of fresh vegetables is unsustainable. Compared to field production, greenhouse hydroponic methods use 90% less water, increase yields, reduce food waste, use fewer pesticides, eliminate fertilizer runoff, and allow crops to be grown locally. However, greenhouse producers make up only a small part of today’s market due to high capital/labor costs and operational complexity. To close this gap, Hippo Harvest designs hydroponic grow systems from the ground up for simplicity, robotic automation, and machine learning to build sustainable, economical, and scalable production systems of the future.
As a Roboticist for Hippo Harvest your job is to design, implement, deploy, and maintain software/systems for all things related to robotics/automation at our 150,000 square foot greenhouse in Pescadero, CA. You’ll be responsible for employing a wide range of technologies and techniques to improve the efficiency of our greenhouses covering everything from autonomous navigation to smarter environmental controls.
