Indigo Ag is working to harness nature to sustainably feed the planet. We have discovered a transformational opportunity to improve global crop yield and reduce the use of agricultural chemicals and fertilizers by utilizing the core microbiome inside plants to confer material yield and crop protection benefits across a variety of crops, geographies, and stresses. The challenge and opportunity for Indigo is to gain critical first mover advantages by scaling quickly.
Jobs at Indigo
At Indigo, we are committed to being a motivating and healthy place to work.
To create this culture, we empower employees to be innovative, creative, and to set and achieve big goals, linking each employee’s efforts to the company’s success. We create an inspiring and collegial work environment where everyone feels connected to one another. And throughout everything, we support the health and wellness of our employees.
Since our founding in 2014, we have stuck closely to a set of core values created and written with the input of all Indigo employees. Even as our company has evolved, these principles have remained relevant, continuing to inform our business practices.
Indigo's Core Values
We will always strive to do the right thing
We believe that the plant microbiome can fundamentally change agriculture for the better, and we are motivated to maximize that potential.
We are intensely focused on meeting the needs of four groups of stakeholders: growers, consumers, the environment, and shareholders.
We are committed to:
* Helping growers improve their profitability
* Improving the healthfulness of the food available to consumers
* Protecting the environment by introducing new products that improve sustainability
* Providing our shareholders with an above average return
When conflicts between our commitments to these stakeholders arise, we will work to find creative solutions that meet the needs of all four.
We are a science-based organization focused on innovations derived from nature. Identifying the microbes that are most beneficial to crops and applying them in the optimal way requires a deep understanding of science, and a tremendous investment in research and development.
We are committed to being a motivating and healthy place to work.
To this end, we:
* Clearly communicate the company priorities, link each employee’s efforts to the company’s success, and recognize and reward success
* Create an inspiring and collegial work environment where everyone feels connected to one another, collaborates well across functions, and has opportunities to learn and grow
* Empower employees to be innovative, creative, and to set and achieve big goals
* Support the health and wellness of our employees
We will interact with others with transparency, respect, honesty, and integrity. We apply this principle to employees, partners, investors, regulators, growers, and consumers. This behavior builds loyalty, garners trust, and establishes an impeccable reputation, and it’s just the right thing to do.
We aren’t perfect and will inevitably fall short of these values on occasion. When that happens, we will acknowledge our mistakes and learn from our experiences so we can do better in the future.
"What drew me to Indigo was the opportunity for growth. Not just personal growth, although that’s appealing too, but the growth of the whole product. There are a million paths to pursue and we’re not penned in by existing structure."
“There are always going to be companies that think what worked in the past will work in the future, but this is a company that never wants to settle, in an industry that needs to refocus. What’s good for Indigo is what’s good for the grower, consumer, and the planet."
"Here, I have so much freedom—I get to really be creative. Not many companies do what Indigo does: It’s helping the farmer, it’s helping the planet. I really like the mission that the company stands by and the way they treat their employees. It doesn’t feel like you’re at work—this a very nice environment to be in. You want to work harder because you know they [other employees] have taken it so far. When you love what you’re doing, it doesn’t even feel like work."
"Working at Indigo allows me to make a positive impact on our Planet while also being part of industry disruption and innovation. I get to combine personal goals of doing positive things in the World while still getting to work on innovative technologies and solutions. It really can’t be beat!"
