Bowery Farming - New York, NY

Founded in 2015, Bowery Farming is on a mission to democratize access to high-quality, local, safe and sustainable produce. We build smart indoor farms near cities, growing fresher, pesticide-free Protected Produce with bold flavor in precisely controlled environments, 365 days a year. At the heart of each farm is the proprietary BoweryOS, which integrates software, hardware, sensors, AI, computer vision systems, machine learning models, and robotics to orchestrate and automate the entirety of its operations. As a result, each farm creates far less waste and uses a fraction of the water and land compared to traditional agriculture.

  • You are a strategic thinker, both technically and for Bowery.
  • You have strong people management, coaching, developing, mentoring skills.
  • You have experience & focus on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion while hiring and retaining staff.
  • You love to collaborate with both internal and external teams for building better solutions.
  • You have experience building excellent engineering processes that adapt to scale.

  • We share a passion for giving back more to the planet than we take, growing deliciously abundant food without abundant harm
  • We are excited to hear from you!
