Farmshelf is an early-stage high-growth startup that builds smart indoor farms. Our bookshelf-sized Farmshelfs provide leafy greens and herbs year-round to food halls, corporate cafeterias, schools and restaurants, including those of acclaimed chefs José Andrés, Marcus Samuelsson, and Claus Meyer. Together, our team of engineers, designers, fabricators, technicians and plant scientists take on the challenges of creating agricultural technology innovations to feed our growing urban populations.
As a Senior Mechanical Engineer, you will work closely with the engineering team to design the overall system and subsystems for the next generation of Farmshelf products. Your day to day work will include prototyping, testing, and implementing solutions. You will optimize designs for manufacturability and assembly. Other responsibilities include managing Bills of Materials and cost, creating specifications and drawings, completing regulatory testing, and engaging with CMs.
Due to the fast-paced nature of the organization, you will need to be able to work on many subsystems simultaneously. This position requires a motivated and enthusiastic individual who cares deeply about their own and their team’s work and can execute responsibilities with little supervision.
Farmshelf is based in Brooklyn, NY. This position requires you to work on-site.
