At Apeel Sciences, we look to nature to help the global food system improve quality, reduce waste, and ensure an abundant future for our planet.

About This Role

Today, when we buy a piece of produce at the grocery store, we know very little about it. When will it be at peak ripeness? How long will it take to spoil? Can I expect it to be tasty, nutritious, fresh? Was it treated with optimal care and with the lowest environmental impact?

As Apeel has scaled, it has become clear that the fresh produce industry is ripe for technological innovation. Our Software and Data Science teams use cutting-edge technology to change the process of measuring produce freshness from an art to a science. We build platforms to revolutionize both the supply chain and marketplace for fresh fruits and vegetables – all in the pursuit of reducing waste and creating an abundant future for the planet.
