At Plenty, we’re on a mission to give people in local communities everywhere access to the freshest, most amazing tasting produce possible. And to do so in a way that’s better for the planet.
The engineering team at Plenty is on a mission to completely redesign the way humanity grows food in order to satisfy the nutritional needs of the world by making the highest quality produce available to everyone. Doing so requires us to reimagine farms, and the supporting equipment, as highly integrated and aggressively optimized engineered systems. To that end, we are seeking a Mechanical Design Engineer to conceptualize, design, integrate, and deploy the Nutrient System and Thermal System skids. These skids are the size of shipping containers, comprised of pumps, fans, sensors, valves, piping, ducting, filtration, electrical, and structural components.
Ideal candidates for this role are exceptionally creative and fundamentally strong engineers who may come from either the design of large products or the design of pump skids and HVAC skids. In this role, you will play a central role in our broad and vertically integrated engineering team, closely collaborating with structural, thermal, electrical, controls, automation and software teams. Your design in collaboration with these teams will enable us to build the most efficient farms ever created and deploy them quickly and inexpensively throughout the world, accelerating humanity’s progression toward a perpetual food system scaled to meet the needs of our growing and changing world.
Plenty is here to change the way people eat, making extraordinary flavor and nutrition more available in a way that's better for people and the planet. We build farms that can put craveable flavor first while delivering exceptional yields. And our produce is always pesticide-free and grown using less than 1% of the land and 5% of the water of outdoor farming.Read Full Description
