About us

The Yield is hiring! Come join us as we change the face of Agtech and help feed the world without wrecking the planet.

We’re looking for a talented and passionate Senior Software Engineer who will be responsible for designing and delivering high quality code in a timely manner around all of our apps and data science models.

We’re an Australian agricultural technology company on a mission to transform food and farming practices with scalable digital technology.

We use real time data and AI to power our technology to solve real challenges at farm level and throughout the food chain.

We help commercial growers make faster, more informed decisions that impact yield and reduce their risks. We do this by providing an integrated set of Agtech solutions that sense, analyse and predict on-farm growing conditions, and then deliver information in a usable, insightful format.

The Yield technology combines hardware, data analytics and user-friendly apps. Our Agtech solutions can be applied across the food chain to help customers to drive profits and sustainability, scale faster and reduce risk. We help our customers to #growbetter.

Our Vision

We aim to be essential to 500 of the biggest agri-food corporates in intensive irrigated crops. We deliver scalable digital technology that is designed with and for growers, reducing uncertainty created by weather to optimize and de-risk production in the agri-food supply chain.

The world needs to produce 60% more food by 2050 to feed the planet at a time of unprecedented resource constraints. Our aim is to be a global leader in intelligent solutions in the food industry. We are developing our solutions in Australia and New Zealand before scaling globally.

The Yield has a highly-focused team combining leading engineers, data scientists, agriculturists and technologists.

We partner with some of the global giants of technology services like Bosch, Yamaha Motor Company and Microsoft. We have a deep commitment to open innovation, collaboration, and diversity. A core value is that we work with the best and share the rewards.

Our founder and Managing Director has spent her life time promoting inclusion and diversity at work. Our business is committed to creating the right culture, systems and flexibility for everyone regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation to thrive and reach their full potential. We were awarded the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) inaugural #TechDiversity award in 2016 in recognition of our achievements.


The Senior Software Engineer at The Yield will work with the CTO, Software Engineering and Data Science teams to deliver amazing new features and take our product to the next level. You will be a part of a highly creative, agile, human centred development team that values your happiness, growth and personal development.

You’ll be a highly motivated systems thinker who is exceptional at what you do. However, you're still eager to grow and hone in on your skills as a Senior Software Engineer. We place a heavy emphasis on leaning on your expertise to take on a high level of responsibility while being a role model and mentor to others on the team. You will also be someone who considers the customer impact when making decisions and has a real appetite for learning and growing, both as an individual and teammate.

We are a truly diverse company and actively strive to be an industry leader in building inclusive technology teams. We offer a supportive and flexible working environment, including giving our staff the tools needed to work remotely.
