Job's description



We are seeking a talented engineer to join our Intelligent Agriculture team as a Machine Learning Engineer. We are working on ambitious projects to characterize plant and soil health across agricultural areas. 


Reporting to the Machine Learning Manager, the Machine Learning Engineer will work closely with our Robotics, Science, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Computational Chemistry, and Software teams to help analyze and model massive synthetic, laboratory, and field datasets, using them to gain insight into properties of plants and soil. 


To support our soil and plant health work using machine learning techniques on large datasets sourced from satellites, drones, field rovers, and lab measurements. 


  • Research and help develop innovative machine learning/deep learning models 
  • Support the implementation of automated processing pipelines for large datasets 
  • Research and help implement algorithms involving active learning, uncertainty modeling, and semi-supervised learning to improve sampling and model performance 
  • Collaborate with our Software and Machine Learning Engineers to put your models and algorithms into production 


  • M.Sc. or Ph.D. in Engineering/Computer Science, or an equivalent combination of experience and knowledge 
  • 3+ years of experience in applying machine learning and deep learning concepts to real-world problems 
  • Experience coding on a team and working collaboratively with other engineers 
  • Familiarity with deep learning network architectures (e.g. convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, single shot detectors) and frameworks (e.g. Tensorflow and PyTorch) 
  • Familiarity with classical and modern computer vision techniques 
  • Solid programming skills with a focus on writing clean/maintainable code with experience in Python (strongly preferred), Java, or C++ programming 
  • Strong analytical ability and mathematical skills 
  • Matured communication and critical thinking ability to influence and propose analytics strategies that challenge status quo thinking 


  • Portfolio of completed machine learning projects/papers available for review 
  • Experience in biology, chemistry, soil science, and/or remote sensing 
  • Experience with active learning, uncertainty modelling, and/or Bayesian neural networks 
  • Experience applying machine learning techniques to massive datasets 
  • Experience with MLOps and/or Data Engineering tools and frameworks 
  • Exposure to imaging system components (sensors, optics, lighting) 
  • Knowledge of the Agile project management methodology 


  • Aptitude for interdisciplinary collaboration 
  • Highly conscientious with strong follow-through 
  • Capable of performing research on best practices and communicating results to a non-expert audience 
  • Able to apply domain knowledge to ambiguous and novel situations 
  • Genuine interest in environmentalism, such as climate change and regenerative agriculture 


  • Remote based in Vancouver, BC.
