Working at PPO
At PPO, we love what we do and the people we work with. We work hard every day to bring new and vital technology to an essential and complex industry: food processing.
Our vision is to transform this industry using a combination of sophisticated hardware, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Today, we’re proud to build systems for the meat processing industry. Our systems work on the line to ensure that our clients’ poultry, pork, and beef products are safe and of the highest quality.
We offer a friendly, diverse and respectful work environment. And we’re a small team that’s scaling fast. If you’re looking for an opportunity to tackle challenging problems that affect everyone on the planet, look no further.
You at PPO
PPO is a food information company. Today, PPO’s mission is to help food producers make safer, higher quality food while addressing one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions: food waste.
We achieve this through our patented Smart Imaging System, which assesses the chemical properties of food products and automates quality and safety inspections; and through machine learning, which ensures our system can operate on the line in real-time. Combining the data and the AI, PPO can generate insights that our clients can use to optimize their products and their production.
