Ripe berries rot in the fields with nobody to pick them. Desperate farmers scour the streets for more labor, and come away empty-handed. Grocery stores respond with ever-higher prices. Only you can rescue us!

  • Do you care about direct impact on a fundamental industry?

  • Are you ready to unleash your creativity and technical excellence in a safe and healthy environment?

If so, we need you.

At Traptic, we build farming robots. We are a venture-backed Bay Area startup that is saving US fruit and vegetable growers from a critical labor shortage. We deploy robotics, computer vision, and custom graspers in a novel machine that will harvest delicate crops quickly, cost effectively and at extremely high quality. Your contributions will play a pivotal role in our growing team, and you will have serious social impact by helping humanity to grow food more cheaply and sustainably. Come join our team as we feed the world.

We are engineers and industry professionals passionate about achieving technical breakthroughs at the intersection of robotics and agriculture. We rely on rapid prototyping and experimentation and continually discover new ways to test and iterate faster. We insist on a respectful atmosphere and healthy communication, and we make time for personal growth even with ambitious timelines. You will help us grow our team while maintaining an extraordinary level of effectiveness.
