Ceres Imaging is a venture-backed agriculture technology company with a mission to help farmers be better stewards of the land while increasing farmer profitability. At Ceres Imaging, we are changing the way farmers manage their crops. We acquire, process, and analyze multispectral aerial imagery of farms, to monitor crop variables such as plant nutrient and water content. Our large (and growing) customer base throughout California, the Pacific Northwest, the Midwest, Canada, Australia, South America, and Portugal use our insights to improve crop management practices like fertilizer application, irrigation schedules, and stress/disease detection.

Founded out of Stanford in 2013, Ceres Imaging has grown into the market leader in imagery  and analytics for agriculture. The 60+ person Ceres Imaging team is defined by a passion for science and agriculture, the belief that diverse companies are better companies, and a shared desire to help solve major environmental issues at a global scale.


As a GIS project intern, you will work closely with the Operations R&D team, as well as our sales, marketing, and science teams to help identify customer-driven projects, further ongoing research collaborations, and contribute to research to develop new products and analyses from the imagery we acquire. You will help investigate and assess feasibility of projects based on geographical constraints, costs, and data availability. Additionally, you may be involved in improving the quality of our automated image processing pipeline and assisting with operationalizing our internal workflows.
