We engineer our farms to operate as advanced manufacturing lines. As a Senior Mechanical Engineer, you will be responsible for the design, simulation, and building of our industrial machinery. The machines you create will autonomously handle millions of pounds of produce. Your work will be the foundation of our robots that work with each other to grow, process, and package fresh produce.

Day in the Life

You will design machines that move and process food. You will work at our flagship farm with on-site labs and fabrication facilities to rapidly prototype your designs.

On a typical day, you will:

  • Work in a small team with electrical and software engineers to rapidly design and prototype machines
  • Design automation cells to increase the throughput and expand the capabilities of our processing
  • Develop new concepts and perform analysis on designs while considering constraints from multiple disciplines (electrical design, manufacturing, business needs)
  • Create CAD models, drawings, and specifications for parts and assemblies
  • Collaborate in component selection and integration (materials, power trains, actuators, etc)
  • Oversee the assembly and fabrication of machines
  • Collaborate with internal teams to integrate new systems into the production facility
  • Troubleshoot and repair production systems


  • B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering, or related field
  • 5+ years of experience in a professional environment
  • Development of complex products through trade studies or system design and analysis
  • Advanced Inventor user or equivalent (NX, Solidworks, etc.), including finite element analysis
  • Expertise in mechanism design, electro-mechanical actuators, high-performance hydraulics, sensors, or data analysis
  • Plastic and steel design and materials knowledge
  • Design for manufacturing and design for assembly experience
  • C++ or Python programming experience
