What if nature could be harnessed to help farmers sustainably feed the planet? Since 2014, Indigo has questioned agriculture's full value chain to improve grower profitability, environmental sustainability, and consumer health. The company’s scientific discoveries and digital innovations have amplified new value from soil to sale, benefiting more than 10,000 growers to date. Indigo is also the company behind The Terraton Initiative, a global effort to drawdown one trillion tons of atmospheric carbon dioxide by unlocking the potential of agricultural soils. In 2019, Indigo was ranked #1 on CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list. Headquartered in Boston, MA, Indigo has additional offices in Memphis, TN; Research Triangle Park, NC; Sydney, Australia; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Basel, Switzerland; and São Paulo, Brazil.

  • Determine causal effects of Indigo’s microbial and agronomic treatments in real world conditions to further our understanding of where, why, and how our products work
  • Build machine learning models that predict business and scientifically relevant field outcomes and simultaneously increase our understanding of real-world agricultural data and the drivers of the outcomes we observe

  • Collaborates effectively across diverse teams; passionate about teaching quantitative skills to laboratory and field scientists and continually increase the level of sophistication in experimental design and analysis
  • Strong desire to continue learning, identifying new techniques and technologies, and rapidly implementing them to keep Indigo at the cutting edge

  • 3+ years of industry experience in statistical and machine learning analysis of complex datasets
  • 2+ years experience leading teams and complex projects

What projects are you most excited about?

Our mission is to provide agronomists with unbiased real-time data we are collecting across thousands of acres at the ground level and from space.
