Working at TerrAvion

TerrAvion is the largest volume provider of aerial imagery to farms in the US. Each week or month, we map more than 100 times as much area as the whole electric drone industry combined.  We are able to do this because we have the best model, the best technology, and the best team for delivering imagery to growers. Our company is highly interdisciplinary, fast-paced, and focused on solving real problems for farmers.

Our work is changing the world for the better, especially for the people who grow our food and wine.  We have a culture of responsibility, accountability, and excellence.  We take these values seriously with respect to one another, our customers,  and partners, though we try not to take ourselves too seriously.  We strive to be a place where team members can perform their best.

If you share our values and believe in what TerrAvion is doing, we would love to have you join our team.  We offer a continuously improving basket of benefits to employees appropriate for a start-up including: competitive cash compensation, equity in TerrAvion, an open office, a fridge full of snacks and drinks, work from home, and discounts on flight training.  We are located in San Leandro, California,  three blocks from the BART station.

Open Positions

We are actively looking to hire for the specific roles listed below:

However, for the right kind of person we can always find a position on our team.  If you are a talented engineer who loves solving the problems we are working on, or you have passion for helping farmers adopt the technology we work with, please get in touch with us at hr@terravion.com.

How We Hire

We have a healthy respect for our inability to extract anything but the most basic qualifications from interviews and resumes.  What we are most concerned with, is whether you do good work as a part of the TerrAvion team and that is difficult to determine in one or two interviews.  To mitigate our lack of interview skills, we like to hire through a  paid internship or consult to hire arrangement.  We understand that this is not a possibility for everyone and work with each candidate to see what makes sense for your situation.   We want you to have a chance to work with us and see that we work well together and you’re actually going to like it here before you commit to the TerrAvion team.

Our team has gone from accomplishment to accomplishment, through many challenges, and still has a great time together.  We want to make sure that continues, for your sake and for ours because we work here too.

Seriously, if you’re not going to have fun working here, life is too short to waste your time.

Please send all resumes and inquires to hr@terravion.com.
