Iron Ox is reimagining the modern farm, utilizing robotics and AI to grow fresh, consistent, and responsibly farmed produce for everyone. Our experienced team of growers, plant scientists, engineers, and innovators are passionate about deeply understanding and developing this new wave of technology to feed an ever-growing population.
Our mission at Iron Ox is dedicated to addressing some of the most significant issues in food security, now and in the future. We’re focused on sustainable, scalable food production for a changing climate and an ever-growing population.
As Iron Ox increases the autonomy of both our mobile and stationary robotic systems, ensuring a safe environment for those working around these machines is a top priority. The Robot Safety team is made up of Robot Safety Operators (RSOs), and these individuals are in charge of validating our safety systems in a production greenhouse environment, monitoring robot performance, and assisting in the Root Cause Corrective Action process.
As a Lead Robot Safety Operator, you will manage the day to day operations of our RSO team, ensuring we maintain a stellar safety record and ensure the team is reporting anomalous behavior. You will be responsible for empowering and mentoring your RSOs as they onboard and grow in their role, as well as being the go to person to ensure cross functional projects with operations, engineering, plant science and data science are properly supported. This is an opportunity to grow your leadership and technical skills while being a part of making an incredible vision come to life. We believe at Iron Ox that clean local produce could one day be carbon negative, affordable, and grown fully autonomously to impact climate change and food insecurity around the world. You are a critical team member to make this happen.
