Position: Head Grower & Jack of Many Trades
Organization: Big Clear Farms
Location: Ottawa, Ontario
Big Clear Farms is looking for a part time or full time grower for a farming automation startup in the Ottawa area. We are growing amazing, delicious food close to where it's consumed using a controlled environment vertical growing model, and in the long term, we will develop a robotics and software platform to automate much of the labour involved, which is traditionally 30% of the cost of indoor production. We're excited about giving the people in our community a delicious, safe, and reasonably priced product that we can be proud of, and really excited about developing technology that makes that easier everywhere. We're in the prototype stage now for our leafy green and herb farm, and have secured some funding.
Here are the skills that would be useful, but none are strict requirements:
Responsibilities would include:
This is a startup position, so it is worth mentioning this is a risky business. We're trying to do something hard and that hasn't been done successfully before (robots) in an already young and contested grow system (indoor vertical farming), so there's no guarantee of success. That said, the journey will be an amazing one with plenty of ups and down, and if you are interested in rising to the challenge, please reach out!
