"I love the lab culture of Indigo. It's great being surrounded by both hard-working and fun-loving people. Most of our experiments are challenging and having the support of coworkers throughout the day really makes it fun for me."

Trudi Baker
Trudi Baker
Senior Manager

"From the early days when the whole company consisted of less than 20 people, I remember EVERYONE would gather for lively brainstorming sessions, the founder of the company, bench scientists, data scientists, lab techs, an attorney - everyone participated and listened and learned from each other's experiences and opinions. Today Indigo is much larger, but this spirit of open communication and collaboration is still strong. We collaborate through our everyday work, through software like our online innovation exchange where we bounce ideas off each other, and through "hands-on" brainstorming sessions where we learn a new assay and some of the points which are most challenging and can share ideas about how to make it more efficient."

Lisa Hoopes
Sr. Software Product Manager

"I'm psyched to be building products that will help Growers sustainably feed the planet and put healthy food on people's plates. Working alongside genuine, kind, smart individuals I get the chance to combine my passion for health, nutrition and technology every day... and that's awesome."

Rachel Raymond
COO, North America

"I've spent my whole career in agriculture and always have been interested in the way technology can change farmers' lives. For US farmers, better technology might mean more profitability and the chance to keep the farm in the family for another generation. For farmers in many places in the world, like Central America or Southeast Asia, technology can mean the opportunity to send the next generation to school rather than keeping them home to help on the farm. We all count on farmers to be there for us, and bringing technology to the market that can make their lives easier is the most rewarding facet of Indigo's mission and my role within it."

Eda Reinot
VP, Regulatory

I find the most rewarding part of my job at Indigo is the opportunity to work with colleagues who have extraordinary talent and passion for what we are trying to accomplish as a company.
