About Nofence

Managing livestock has always been a challenge. Humanity has tried everything from herding with dogs to walling the animals in with barbed wire, electric, and wooden fences, but these are costly and time-consuming solutions and often in conflict with the local wildlife. It has also left vast areas of potential pasture overgrown and underutilized.

Until now.

Enter virtual fences. What started as a small group of farmers and engineers with a big idea has become Nofence – the world’s first virtual fencing solution for livestock. Curious about how it works? Find out more here.


About Us

As a company still in our early stages, our way of working is continuously evolving, and you will have the opportunity to make an impact on how we do things. We are passionate about product development, animal welfare, farmer welfare and sustainable agriculture. We genuinely believe our grazing technology is the biggest technological change in agriculture since the tractor!

So far, our clients have used Nofence in a range of creative ways, including regenerative cattle farming, conservation grazing with goats, regenerative grazing with sheep, and even government work! Yet we have only just scratched the surface, and already have 250 million hours of operation on animals with recorded behaviour data to explore.

The Product team is currently a team of 15 employees working with Product development, UX Design and Global Customer Support. We're excited to add a Senior User Experience Designer to our team who's not only skilled in interaction design but also embodies the collaborative and friendly spirit of Nofence. We believe in cooperation, adaptiveness, and a fun and relaxed working environment!

With offices in Oslo and Trondheim for the city strollers and our Molde office surrounded by nature for the outdoor enthusiasts, we've got the best of both worlds.

We believe in seeing results fast. As an UX Designer in our team, your work won't be lost in the bureaucratic shuffle. You'll witness the immediate impact of your contributions in real-time, influencing the evolution of our cutting-edge virtual fencing solution for livestock.

Join us, where ambition meets reality, and let's keep pushing the boundaries in the world of agri-tech!
