What is Benchmark Labs
Benchmark Labs is a venture-backed start-up working on improving weather forecasts for the agricultural and energy sectors. We are one of the six companies selected by Nextview’s Everyday Economy accelerator, we are part of The Maritime Alliance’s BlueTech Incubator, Plug and Play’s Insurtech Batch 8, and the Southern California Energy Innovation Network (SCEIN).
We work on providing tailored forecasts for specific locations around the globe by using publicly available datasets, information from IoT sensors, and novel machine learning techniques. We believe that we need to build upon traditional weather forecasting approaches that divide the world in grids but are not suited for making asset-specific decisions, as all the points inside of a grid receive the same information.
Our team is committed to helping growers feed the world while reducing water and energy waste. Our relationships with our customers and team members are governed by integrity, trust, honesty, professionalism, and open communication. We operate in an environment defined by collaboration and continuous improvement.
We are seeking an individual excited about bleeding-edge climate technology. You will be the bridge between customers and our technical team. You will work directly with the CEO and CPO to onboard new customers, communicate product improvements, and construct playbooks for product deployment and new hires.
