Overview

We are:

Rogo, an agri-technology company that is delivering true, scalable innovation to agricultural soil fertility management, one soil sample at a time.  We use self-driving robots to eliminate human error and improve the accuracy of soil sampling to increase fertilizer placement ROI for growers. True to our name, Rogo, which means “to ask”, our relentless truth-seeking has enabled legitimate, tested value at scale as the largest commercial row-crop robotics operation, and fostered a unique team culture of humility as we grow with each other on this adventure.

 

We are looking for someone to:

  • 1-Liner: Transform Rogo’s operations arm and then scale it rapidly across the US
  • Manage ops team (field, backoffice, maintenance, support) to deliver service at scale
  • Manage all tangible assets: fleet, inventory, property
  • Hire, train, evaluate, coach, fire in order to succeed (team size growing from 30 to 200+)
  • Execute service according to customer expectations, while maximizing profit & safety
  • Solve all operational problems and support/enable other teams to solve theirs 

 

What you get to do:

  • enable delivery of true soil fertility management innovation to US Agriculture
  • transform a viable model’s effectiveness and scale it from 300k to 2M+ acres
  • Build an operations organization from the ground up
  • work directly with leadership to shape culture and growth (reports to President)

 

You should have:

  • ~15+ years of experience in business, operations & people management
  • a track record of solving complex operational problems
  • Bonus experience: distributed crews, hourly/seasonal workforce, Ag, Startups
  • Bonus experience: financial analysis & reporting, equipment maintenance

 

This is for you if you love and excel at:

  • making things more effective & efficient
  • solving big problems, and thinking out-of-the-box if necessary
  • building teams & culture to help our operators succeed
  • building process & accountability
  • using numbers & logic to measure, improve results, and size opportunities & investment
  • communicating effectively with other teams (like engineering) when their help is needed

 

This might not be for you if you:

  • can’t thrive in a startup, navigating messiness and focusing on controllables
  • don’t like getting dirt on your hands (we are a soil sampling company after all)
  • don’t embrace seasonality of Agriculture and its inherent intensity 
  • don’t embrace ~20-40% seasonal travel as needed to scale across the Midwest
