Passionate to eat better, Infarm was founded in Berlin in 2013 by Osnat Michaeli and the brothers Erez and Guy Galonska. With the aim to share the goodness of own-grown produce with everyone, they developed a smart modular farming system, that allows distribution of farms throughout the urban environment, growing fresh produce in any available space and fulfilling any market demand.
Today, with cutting edge R&D, patented technologies, and a leading multi-disciplinary team, Infarm is growing a global farming network helping cities become self-sufficient in their food production while significantly improving the safety, quality, and environmental footprint of our food.
Be part of the Infarm (r)evolution and help people to take back ownership of their food.
At Infarm we grow a smart worldwide Infarm network that brings farming to the people. As the Maintenance/Installation Specialist, you will be responsible for the installation, maintenance and care of our hydroponic farms both at our plant hub and our customer locations across Halifax. You’ll follow clearly defined processes and quality standards to ensure both the physical farm itself and the software are working correctly. You will also work as part of the Installation team responsible for managing the successful installation and testing of Infarm’s unique farm systems at our clients’ locations, from local venues to large scale international roll-outs. The Installation team travels extensively to keep up with Infarm’s ambitious expansion plans in Canada and the US.
Practical maintenance experience is required as you’ll be solving a variety of technical problems related to pipes, pumps, valves, radiators, irrigation systems, LED lamp units and fans. You’ll also need to combine this, with great communication skills and the basic skills to maintain the smooth running of our software, ‘the brains’ of our urban farms. Previous software/coding skills are not required as training will be provided.
You appreciate diversity. You love to be challenged. You are passionate.
