ABOUT OLOMBRIA:

Over 75% of agricultural crops worldwide rely on insects for pollination to ensure increased yields at harvest. However, the total demand for insect-pollinated crops is rising five times as fast as the available hives. Add to this that the number of wild pollinators is steadily declining, and there is an immediate risk to many crops that threatens food security.

Olombria uses specific species of flies to supplement bees as primary pollinators. Flies already do about 30% of the world’s pollination, but the Olombria technology substantially increases their effectiveness. We use advanced, natural chemical signalling and mapping technologies to choreograph their behaviour, placing them just where the crops need them to be.

We love candidates who have a passion for developing innovative solutions and have an entrepreneurial spirit. You will use your technical expertise to work with an interdisciplinary team of designers, scientists, and researchers to build the next generation of agricultural IoT solutions.
