At Cloud Agronomics, our mission is to accelerate the adoption of sustainable agriculture in order to reduce emissions from the agriculture industry, restore global soils, and improve rural livelihoods. Powered by a breakthrough in remote sensing and machine learning, our AI solutions measure the impact that farming practices have on soil carbon and crop nutrients at scale, unlocking the path to net zero agriculture and a sustainable food supply chain. We give customers confidence in emission reductions on global farmland.

We are expanding our team by adding a Senior Data Scientist. The Senior Data Scientist will be responsible for researching and developing novel data-driven approaches to improve farm outcomes. They will leverage diverse geospatial data sources to architect deep learning models and pipelines, working closely with other Data Scientists, physical scientists, and product owners.
