About the company:

At Bowery Farming, we dream of a world where agriculture gives back to the people and the planet more than it takes. But to achieve this, we need more than incremental change. 

We need to reimagine farming from the ground up. 

Everyday, Bowery’s purpose-driven team works toward this mission. Right outside of cities, we build indoor farms that grow wildly flavorful produce that’s defiantly free from pollutants, all while using less finite resources like space and water. Our smart farms are powered by our proprietary farm operating system, BoweryOS, creating a simplified, agile food system that’s focused on flavor, freshness, and safety. 

At Bowery, we’re farming efficiently so we can feed effectively, democratizing access to fresh, local food in our communities. Join us: https://boweryfarming.com/careers/


At Bowery, we’re making wildly delicious food more accessible to everyone. Driven by our proprietary end-to-end technology, our farms are transforming the entire fresh food supply chain to be simpler, safer, and vastly more sustainable.

We have 5 farms in operation (including state-of-the-art R&D and innovation farms) and we’re just getting started. We’re backed by tech and agriculture industry leaders with $647M in equity and debt capital, and our products are sold in over 1,400 locations.

Working at Bowery is more than just a job. It’s a chance to make a global impact with first-of-its-kind technology and ridiculously good food. We’re always looking for passionate minds to grow (and eat) with us! Ready to make a real difference? Join us. We’d love to have you here.

About the Role:
As a Sr. Product Manager at Bowery, you’ll be responsible for creating and executing technology strategies that support our vision of building and operating a network of smart indoor farms. This is a once-in-a-career opportunity to revolutionize a multi-millennium-old institution and tackle some of the toughest challenges facing our planet – water scarcity, food security, and pesticide overuse among them.

You’ll steer our Software, Robotics, Automation, Hardware, Operations Engineering, and Data technology teams to bring priorities to life. You’ll dig deeply to understand root causes and recommend solutions. Your planning cycles will be continuous, and represent the evolving needs of Bowery’s dynamic business as well as your stakeholders. You’ll play a key role in helping Bowery scale from a local community of farms to a technology-powered network that operates and optimizes autonomously.

The Sr. Product Manager role will support Bowery’s agricultural and operational goals across existing and future farms. This will involve defining technology solutions that enhance our agricultural, operational, and commercial performance. You'll play a key role in expanding our proprietary technology platform, BoweryOS, developing data products to monitor farm and crop health, and facilitating the introduction of new crops into our product line.

This is a hybrid role. While we offer flexibility to work from home during the week, you’ll also be expected to join us at our headquarters in NYC part time (2-3days/week), as well as occasionally visit our farms in Baltimore, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey to get to know your end users and product opportunity space.

The salary for this role will be $185,000. If this role is of interest to you, we encourage you to apply no matter what so we can see your profile and background. You can trust us to make a leveling assessment based on your unique skills and experience and communicate that with you. 

Bowery is an equal opportunity employer - a place that celebrates unique backgrounds, qualities, and cultures that will enrich the workplace. We are attempting to redefine what a sustainable agricultural supply chain can look like. We cannot achieve this mission without a team that reflects the diversity of people who want fresh, locally grown food in regard to race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, national origin, religion, family status, disability, military status, and experience. We strongly encourage people from marginalized communities to apply to join our team.

What You'll Do:

  • Develop technology strategies aligned with our goals for crop yield, throughput, cost management, and loss reduction.
  • Define solutions to meet the needs of Bowery's agricultural and operations functions, including the development and operationalization of new crops and products.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional stakeholders, particularly in Operations, Supply Chain, and Agricultural Science, to identify and prioritize roadmap initiatives.
  • Work closely with technology teams, including Software, Infrastructure, Robotics, Operations Engineering, and Data, to flawlessly execute roadmap priorities.
  • Establish success metrics for your solutions, closely track them, and leverage them to inform future iterations.
  • Anticipate the evolving needs of Bowery as we rapidly expand our farm network and adjust your solutions accordingly.
  • Who You Are:

  • Data-driven decision-maker who focuses on solving root causes rather than symptoms.
  • Demonstrate empathy for users and stakeholders throughout the product development process.
  • View assumptions and constraints as inspiration rather than obstacles.
  • Drive successful outcomes by collaborating effectively with teams across functional areas and levels.
  • Make informed decisions for your product area while considering diverse perspectives, rather than relying solely on consensus.
  • Prioritize tasks based on urgency and importance.
  • Efficiently execute the product development lifecycle, delivering high-quality results.
  • Transparent about both successes and disappointments, fostering a culture of open communication.
  • Possess strong product intuition and system design thinking, with a passion for building scalable solutions.
  • Experienced in managing complex products and excited to innovate with new technologies.
  • These qualities will empower you to excel as a Sr. Product Manager at Bowery and contribute to our mission of transforming the future of indoor farming.
  • Benefits as Good as Our Greens

  • To support you and your family, we offer health, dental, and vision insurance; mental health resources; family forming support; long-term and short-term disability insurance; FSA; HSA and commuter benefits
  • Company stock options so that you can reap the benefits of every Bowery win
