At Amber Agriculture, we’re fascinated with the trade of grain…
We are looking for our next key team members to join our ambitions in building industry-first technology for the world’s most important sector- Agriculture.
A bit about us…
Amber was cofounded by Lucas Frye (left) and Joey Varikooty (right). One had a farm upbringing the other a background at Fitbit.
We launched at the University of Illinois
Shoutout: @acesillinois, @illengineering, @giesbusiness, @tecenter Cozad, @iventure_uofi, @uiresearchpark
Accelerated in Shenzhen and Silicon Valley
We lived above the electronics markets in Shenzhen China for six months. Spent a six month stint in the Valley before returning to Illinois.
And are based and building in Chicago
The mecca of the grain markets.
Along the way, we’ve had a few fun highlights
Amber Agriculture was the kickoff story at the 150th birthday bash of the University of Illinois
Amber was named ‘Best Startup’ at the World’s Largest Tech Show- CES in Las Vegas
“Plenty of startups promise solutions to problems that are either overblown or don’t really exist, but we can’t say the same about Amber.” — Engadget
Our technology was talked about in a hearing of the United States Senate
It’s not often startup tech makes its way into congressional conversation. The reason for it- a grand global issue (not the feed the world one)… stay tuned.
And we’re working with folks across the globe
In our corner of agtech, we’ve done boots on the ground business in four continents and counting. Join a global startup from day one.
But most importantly, we’ve been advancing quietly, putting our technology in the hands of farmers
We’ve come a long way and have a lot of exciting work ahead.
The team is growing and we are looking for our next core contributors
You’ll be a key player to the launch and long term build out of new and novel industry technology. And get to work with Dean Ng, Will Conklin, and Drew Bell.
Are you looking for something new and challenging…
Intrigued by connecting hundreds/thousands of real-time data points or empowering farmers and those in food and agriculture?
