Working at Observant
We are part of a global company dedicated to the design and delivery of world-class solutions to help farmers sustainably improve yield. Our customers use our platform to make informed decisions about how to efficiently use natural resources to help feed & clothe the world. Call it AgTech, call it the internet of things, that's what we're into. We design and manufacture our own hardware platform, along with an entire suite of cloud-based software that collects and visualises the information. We are located in Fitzroy, Victoria, and love providing a place for talented and enthusiastic people to develop, grow and help us build high quality products.
Observant's Melbourne office (in the suburb of Fitzroy) is where all our hardware and software design and development takes place. It's a custom designed office, featuring an amazing indoor garden, monitored and irrigated by our own products of course.
Inner city Melbourne has many charms and some challenges. Abundant food, great coffee and fashion abound; but it can get a bit noisy. Some like the hubbub, others like to use good headphones. The neighbourhood is constantly changing, development and street art are a regular part of life. Traffic can be hectic, so many chose to bike to work. The office also has a low carbon footprint -- 90%+ of our electricity is generated on site.
If you have a passion for technology and want to help global agriculture meet the food and fibre production needs of our growing population, then this could be your new workplace.
Our Fitzroy office is a showcase for our products, and the indoor gardens and abundant natural light make it an ideal testing ground.
