Why you should join Beanstalk

Brothers, Michael and Jack, started Beanstalk as a solution to solve a local restaurant’s need for consistent, high-quality salad. In doing so, they created a new vertical farming technology capable of growing lettuces, spinach, basil, carrots, lavender, and more.

Beanstalk is at the nexus of industrial robotics, plant science, and the culinary arts. Our technology enables us to develop new products quickly, automate traditionally labor-intensive work, and connect consumers to fresh produce in ways not before seen.

We’re backed by top VCs and investors and looking for engineers, researchers, and operators that want to build the next generation of farms.
