ROWBOT, a Minneapolis (MN) based startup, is developing ground-based 
robotic systems to work in large-scale agricultural fields. We have an 
advanced prototype, developed in partnership with the team at Carnegie 
Robotics [1]. It has traveled over 50 miles in self-driving mode between 
rows on real corn fields. Check out videos and pictures on our website 
(below) for more info. Robotics in agriculture is a hot topic, and 
helping corn farmers manage their crop by doing work and collecting data 
is a multi-billion dollar market opportunity.

We are actively seeking a special person to come onboard as CTO and 
build our core robotics team. An advanced degree in a relevant 
discipline is required. Experience developing unmanned ground vehicles 
is essential. Expect that you will immediately have to explain to 
serious investors why you are the right one to take ROWBOT to the next 
level. Thus, you will be a robotics expert capable of making strategic 
decisions related to technology while also being able to dive into the 
details and iterate rapidly to improve on-field performance of our systems.

This is an unusual opportunity: join with co-founder status in a startup 
that has already substantially reduced risk and gained considerable 
interest in agricultural circles and beyond.

If you think you might fit this description, please contact me 
(kbares at rowbot.com) with a brief description of your background, career 
goals, and why ROWBOT sounds like the perfect opportunity for you.
