Development Engineering Internship


Phinite is a startup dedicated to making agriculture sustainable. Our novel waste drying system transforms animal waste into renewable fertilizer which is exported off animal farms and sold. Revenues are shared between Phinite and farmers – offering farmers a profitable model for waste recycling. Our system is an automated waste dryer, which uses air and mechanical agitation of waste material to achieve drying. Drying systems are built on individual farms, and the final dry material is collected and sold through centralized fertilizer sales channels.


Experience in hardware, machinery development and low-energy drying systems (eg. Solar drying) is useful. Experience in dredging, concrete or other high-solids pumping is also interesting. Experience in Arduino and Raspberry Pi’s is also useful. Aptitude and resourcefulness will trump specifics though in our competencies so please include any demonstration of past projects, professional or private.
