TellusLabs Company Overview

Who are we?

TellusLabs is a 14 person company based in Davis Square, Somerville. We’re using satellites and machine learning to build a dynamic map of the world’s natural resources. 

Why and how are we doing this?

The Planet Earth is an amazing, living thing. Its environment is a dynamic set of systems that provide abundant resources. Human civilization exists because of our ability to understand these systems and harvest their fruit. At TellusLabs, we’re building a map of the planet’s resources that is just as dynamic as the planet itself. We’re creating technology that not only monitors changes, but anticipates them.

To succeed as scientists and entrepreneurs, we need to make really good choices in the tools we use, the problems we want to solve, and the people we collaborate with.

“It’s a really small team, so you get to know everyone. There are no work politics, because everyone knows everyone really well. I definitely feel like the team dynamics are different from regular industries, where you have a larger team but might not work as closely.”

“Everyone, especially Ophir but also all the other engineers, are really willing to help teach me stuff. Ophir is working hard to give me projects that are just a little bit too hard for me, but not way too hard, and I feel like that is really unique when I compare my experience to other junior software engineers.”

The future we imagine…Consider for a moment a Bloomberg Terminal — a nexus for hundreds and thousands of signals that collectively paint an accurate, near real-time portrait of global financial markets. These signals are delivered reliably to hundreds of thousands of professionals, helping them create opportunity, hedge risk, and find efficiency. So, why isn’t there a Bloomberg terminal for Earth?What would we do differently if we could trace even small changes in plant health across...

Many of us are familiar with the conflict in Syria: we have seen photos of buildings leveled by bombs and refugees displaced by violence. Pro-democracy protests in 2011 escalated quickly into a civil war within a year, when rebel brigades formed to fight government forces. By June 2015, over 250,000 people had been killed in the conflict. As of July 2018, over 5.6 million Syrians have fled due to the civil war.The conflict in Syria has devastated its natural resources.

Over the past several months, we’ve been teasing a massive expansion in the geographic and agricultural scope of our flagship Kernel product…We championed the need for a global scoreboard for food supply and shared some of our newer techniques for filling in gaps to provide 15-year continuous crop records.More recently, we shared long-term trend estimates for corn, soy and wheat throughout the Northern Hemisphere. In mid-May, we published the first forecasts of live wheat models in five co...
