InnerPlant is the place for curious people who want to create innovative traits that harness plant physiology and unlock data at scale to boost global agricultural yields and sustainability. We’re backed by industry giant John Deere and other veteran venture capitalists and are poised for growth as we develop crops that can tell us what they need by turning plants into living sensors.

If you’re a dreamer and an optimist, someone who believes they can change the world and want to take action to leave a positive lasting impact - this is the opportunity for you.

Job Description

Our company has made great strides in our work to create plants that generate an optical signal when stressed and detect that signal from various imaging platforms. We are now expanding our work to make that signal actionable for farmers. The successful candidate for this position will help design, build and maintain the digital infrastructure necessary to relay our plants’ signals as insights back to the farm.


  • Architect, build, and maintain the infrastructure that catalogs InnerPlant’s remotely sensed detections of plant fluorescence
  • Integrate our detection signals with third party data and APIs
  • Vet and source software vendors suppliers as needed, making build, buy, or partner decisions in partnership with Product and R&D
