Customer Support US

Join us in giving the best customer experience for the most exciting product in AgTech!

Nofence is a Norwegian scale up who has built the world’s first virtual fencing solution for livestock. The technology consists of a solar-powered collar that communicates with an app over the cellular network. Through the app, farmers can set up a new grazing area in seconds, and the long days of installing and moving fences are officially over! This creates better farmer welfare and increased animal welfare. The animals gain access to new areas that were previously impossible to fence in, and the farmer will always have visibility of their location.

Today, we have over 3000 customers in Norway and we are establishing ourselves in the UK, Spain & the US. Our US team is now seeking a Customer Support Advisor to join them at the office in Madison, Wisconsin.

Join us on the journey to revolutionize agriculture and create a better everyday life for farmers and animals!

    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.

    What can we offer?

    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. As our colleague you will be part of an exciting company with enormous ambitions for international growth. We genuinely believe our grazing technology can be the biggest technological change in agriculture since the tractor!

    The right candidate will get a competitive salary, contemporary office to work from, IT equipment, pension and a fun and rewarding environment which will enable you to thrive within a supportive team. We will also offer full product training and an onboarding process where you will get to travel and meet the whole global team and feel part of something special from day one!

    About the Application

    Are you ready to change pasture? After all, the grass is sometimes greener on the other side! Also, just like the soil needs a balanced diversity of nutrients to thrive, a company needs a diversity of hearts and minds. We are an equal-opportunity employer!

    The deadline for the application will be the 11th of August 2024.
