Urban populations are growing at an alarming rate (70-75% of the world’s population is projected to live in urban areas by 2050), placing pressure on an already fragile food system/economy.
With the power of pooled analytics and microclimate data, cities can target, measure and reframe their sustainability footprint in climate and food susceptible neighborhoods. Farmers can access synthesized crop and weather metrics to help increase growing efficiencies with fewer resources. The DirtSat network can deliver unparalleled visibility, access and insights into the entire smart city ecosystem.
"It's clear that agriculture, done right, is the best means the world has today to simultaneously tackle food security, poverty and environmental degradation." — Irene Rosenfeld

🌍 Our company is fully remote, and we're assembling a team of extraordinary talent to tackle urban food insecurity and climate resilience through smart city integration. That means three tech verticals covering AgTech-IoT, GeoAI and ML, and GIS-data analytics.
🔨 In true startup fashion, we're starting with small but notable building blocks for future development. We are evaluating deliverables and culture fit with an eye toward continued and recurring roles. If we like each other and what's produced, we'll find more opportunities to work together.
