Bring the Future to Fruit Farming.


Vivid Machines is an innovative startup that helps fruit farmers produce more food and less waste with our proprietary sensor and computer vision system. We are extremely passionate about supporting growers with the tools they need, as we continue pursuing our dream of taking farming to new heights.


Our teammates never have to feel like they are cogs in a machine because they have the freedom to experiment with their ideas and own everything that they do. On this team, leadership doesn’t micromanage and smother inspiration – in fact, they nurture and promote it.


We value excellence, determination, curiosity, innovation, and most importantly, passion. We pride ourselves on being open-minded and decisive, with a keen ability to iterate quickly and deliver. We exist to help make farming easier and contribute to solving global food security. We are here to bring the future to fruit farming.

By leveraging advanced vision sensors and state-of-the-art machine learning, we provide fruit farmers with plant-specific insights, capturing previously unobserved and invisible features to improve yield and product quality.
