Working at

Nordetect was founded with a vision of enabling farmers and growers around the world to produce quality food with the least amount of resources. Some might call this sustainable, we think it's inevitable! We need to grow more food to feed growing populations, and we need to do it in a way that does not destroy the planet in the process. But agriculture is a resource-heavy industry that depends on inputs such as water, seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides, many of which are overused, just to be safe. This has an impact on the economy of the farmer, the quality of soil and water in our environment, and the quality of food that we eat. Food cannot grow without water and nutrients, and this is exactly where we focus our attention. At our core, we are a biochemical analysis company that combines Lab-on-a-Chip technologies, computer vision, and a modern software stack to produce a rapid testing device and analytics tools. But our product has gained the nickname “The blood test for crops”. This lets our customers rapidly measure the levels of chemicals in soil, water, or plant sap so they can make better decisions on how they use their chemical inputs. As you can imagine, it's a tech-heavy product but we strive to make it look simple so it can scale to even the most low-tech customers. Culturally, we are diverse on all fronts. Gender, nationality, age, and academic background, to name a few. We believe that the modern workspace is a meeting of the minds and that collective intelligence is greater than the sum of the individuals. We're also huge fans of self-starters and believe that there are no passengers in a startup because we are all drivers of some form of growth. If you don't see a job posting from us, don't let that stop you from engaging. Get in touch!
