User Experience (UX) Specialist

Who are we?

Aerobotics is a South African Ag-tech startup focused on providing tree crop protection to farmers through early problem detection and alerts. Our Aeroview platform combines weekly satellite data, drone imagery and scout information to track farm performance on a per-tree basis allowing farmers to take a data-driven approach when optimising the health of their farm.

Our software uses machine learning to identify early stage problems, automatically detect pests and diseases, and guide farmers to these locations. Farmers validate our algorithms in-field and diagnose the specific problems, ultimately advancing the algorithms’ intelligence and benefiting our grower community.
