About Ambrook

What we do

Ambrook’s mission is to help farmers and ranchers be more profitable and more sustainable. We're building a financial management platform for agriculture, starting with tools that help farmers and ranchers automatically discover and apply for farm assistance (e.g. disaster relief, conservation programs, and climate incentives). In just a few months, we have helped our users successfully apply for millions of dollars in farm assistance.

We’re backed by top seed investors (Homebrew, Designer Fund, BoxGroup, and more) and are looking for values-aligned individuals to join our fully remote founding team.

Learn more about our mission and what it’s like to work with us.

The problem

Billions of dollars in farm assistance is allocated by Congress every year to help farmers and ranchers become more profitable by using more climate-friendly and sustainable practices.

However, due to short funding windows, confusing forms, and inconsistent government marketing, most farmers and ranchers find themselves overwhelmed by the paperwork or don't hear about the funding in time to apply. We’re fixing that.

The opportunity

Ambrook is building a world-class founding team. As one of our first Ambrook engineers, you’ll help drive our technical decisions and influence our product direction for years to come, with the goal of making agriculture more sustainable and profitable.

You’ll report directly to Ambrook’s co-founder and eng lead, Dan Schlosser.
