Fruition Sciences, a vineyard information company, is seeking vineyard technicians for the 2019 vintage. We are looking for technicians in the Napa/Sonoma area.
Fruition Sciences is a precision agriculture/online software company which provides the most advanced vineyard-monitoring tools in the industry. Our system and protocols are designed to help winemakers link their fruit maturation with vineyard practices, in order to grow the best fruit quality. Fruit maturation is strongly dependent on climate, irrigation, canopy, soil, nutrients, etc., because of this we offer an expertise on data collection, connecting vineyard data, and visual observations.

Our Vineyard Technicians assist us with the collection of vineyard data. We provide many different services throughout the season at many different vineyards. You will be constantly learning and developing new skills. Each day will be spent visiting a number of clients and performing various tasks. Everyday will be different, depending on which project you are working on.
This is a challenging (both mentally and physically) but rewarding internship. It gives you the chance to see the wine industry from a less-common perspective, from the precision agriculture/technology driven side of the industry.
This is a vineyard internship, so you will be outside; rain or shine. Physical fitness is a factor of this job; we work with equipment in the field so you will be required to carry heavy materials in the vineyard (up and down hills). Because what we do is so unique, you will need to learn a lot of information in a short period of time and follow specific instructions very carefully with little supervision. Expectations for this internship are extremely high.
We are constantly growing so there is potential for this internship to turn into full-time employment.
For those that are more interested in the viticulture/winemaking side of the industry; this internship provides a great opportunity to get your foot-in-the-door with wine brands (including high-end, luxury wine brands). Our intern alumni have gone on to do many great things at many different companies around the world. If you do well for us we can provide you with recommendations to top wineries globally.
Key qualities to be successful in this position: honesty, strong attention to detail, and the aptitude to adapt to changing schedules/tasks/etc. with little notice.
Approximate 6 month internship (April-harvest). $16/hour, typically 40 hours/week, there may be some overtime.
