Virtual Fencing Specialist



Morrisville, PA, USA
Posted on Thursday, June 13, 2024
About the role
Want to be on the cutting edge of technology within the agricultural sector? This role is not a traditional role as we are pioneering the future of farming. We’re looking for someone eager to take Virtual Fencing to the next level in New Zealand and overseas.
You will be a part of our multidisciplinary Farm Research & Development team composed of engineers, farmers, and everything in between. Our days never look the same; we find ourselves doing anything from working with the animals to sitting in our AKL-HQ working on the next big endeavour. We focus on designing and developing new features that benefit our animals and our customers in their day-to-day operations using Halter.
We believe that team culture is vital for our success as a team and as a company and as a result, we work hard to maintain a fun and casual atmosphere in which you can thrive and develop. From the first day you join, you'll be able to have a direct impact on what our product looks like and how farmers use it. Your point of view, support and input will be vital to the success of Halter. You will be heavily involved in all the tests we run; from the designing phase all the way through the testing and interpreting of data.

What your day could look like

  • Running trials to enable continuous invocation and expansion of the Virtual Fencing product, from design to execution to conclusion.
  • Critically thinking about the dynamic between animals and our collar to proactively start initiatives valuable for our farmers and their animals.
  • Analysing data, results and learnings to monitor/support virtual fencing in the field to proactively and reactively solve challenges to maintain high levels of performance.
  • Leading timely and high-quality cross-functional projects across Halter: working with our Engineering team to provide input into new and existing product features; to our Customer Success team to ensure our products are meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations.
  • Sharing in-depth knowledge and context about farming, animals and virtual fencing throughout Halter.

Who we’re looking for

  • 3 years experience in the rural sector (farming, rural businesses, animal behaviour etc)
  • Interest in agri-tech, being tech-savvy and not afraid of learning our product's inner details and functionality.
  • Experience in leading cross-functional projects or running research trials
  • Passion for animals, farmers and the future of farming
  • Proven ability to think critically about a problem and reach strong, innovative conclusions
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Thrive in a fast-paced environment and resilient & comfortable with ambiguity
  • Fast learner who is motivated to work hard and learn with a team doing things that have never been done before
  • Willing to travel for work (domestic and international) as well as weekends
  • A 'get stuff done' attitude!

Why our team loves working at Halter

Halter is an incredible technology transforming an essential industry. We have a genuine and shared connection to our mission to make a difference in the world.
  • Our product changes the lives of our customers, directly improving their livelihoods and their lifestyle. Your work matters.

  • Work where it all began on our test farm in Morrinsville where you’ll get to interact with our product on a daily basis. Did we mention dogs and cows?
  • Healthy body, healthy mind. We’re partnered with Southern Cross Health Insurance to support your well-being.
  • We offer 6 months of fully paid parental leave for primary caregivers, 4 weeks of fully paid secondary caregiver leave and many other parental benefits that support you and your family.
