About AcreTrader

AcreTrader launched in 2018 and has established itself as a leader in the farmland investment industry. Our team and company have grown at an incredible pace, and to continue this growth, we must do so intentionally. We have very high expectations for ourselves, each other, and every new team member. We’re looking for high performers who go about their work with a sense of curiosity and a drive to make things better. If you would like to be a part of a fast-moving operation with an opportunity to make a massive impact at the intersection of finance, technology, and agriculture—then please, get in touch.

Acres aims to be the most comprehensive, accurate, and useful mapping tool for agriculture. There are over 50 million farmland owners in the world that require a better service to explore their land. That includes using satellite imagery to discover how land has evolved, pricing land at market values through valuation algorithms, and exploring many layers of underlying agronomic information. Our team solves complex computer science problems, designs beautiful and intuitive product experiences, and improves the accuracy of our data to set the industry standard for mapping. We support a desktop and mobile application, both of which which serve our growing customer base.

AcreTrader is a real estate investing platform that makes it easy to buy shares of farmland and earn passive income. United States farmland has historically outperformed most asset classes and other forms of real estate. Unfortunately, buying and maintaining farmland directly is extremely difficult without local knowledge and management, as well as large investment commitments. AcreTrader solves these issues by providing transparency, flexibility, and ease of use to people wanting to invest in farmland while handling all aspects of administration and property management, from insurance and accounting to working with local farmers and improving soil sustainability. At the same time, AcreTrader works to help farmers scale through innovative sales and leasing opportunities. See our How it Works page for more details.

We are dedicated to the growth of our platform and the growth of our people. In an effort to best support our employees, we offer (among other benefits) unlimited PTO, medical, vision, and dental insurance, a 401k plan, and generous stock options upon hire. Studies have shown that candidates from underrepresented backgrounds often do not apply for roles if all key competencies are not met. Acres is an equal opportunity employer and recognizes that diverse teams are the strongest teams. We encourage interested individuals of all backgrounds to apply.
We’re so excited to hear what excites you.
