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.

We help farmers/industry manage and market grain leveraging the latest in sensing, analytics and automation.

A bit about us…

And are based and building in Chicago

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.

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.
