Interested in jumping the fence and see what’s on the other side? Are your looking for a change of scenery? Perhaps you will be our new Product Manager Software? At Nofence the grass is greener, and animal welfare and advanced technology is the core of our mission.
A pretty new thing to the world is virtual fencing, and we, a company from the small Batnfjordsøra is leading the race.
We are looking to revolutionize the global agriculture.
Out of only three key players in the world we are first out commercializing our product. Join us keeping us at the top of the podium!
Many believes that Nofence is the biggest invention for agriculture since the tractor.
We are strongly passionate about product development, animal welfare and sustainable agriculture. On the premises of the animals. On the premises of the planet.
We work for more sustainable food production and a better usage of land resources worldwide.
And last but not least, a “kjøle go” costumer experience!
Our technology is based on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) implemented in a solar panel driven connected device (IoT). The device is used by grazing animals and in a magic way these animals can be kept within a grazing area, and that completely without physical fences. With super advanced electronics, circuits, algorithms, product design, and materials we can access this magic and makes it possible.
With Nofence the farmer holds a tool making grazing more flexible and smarter, and Nofence is, and will become, a key tool to how we work with and drive agriculture. The possibilities of development are at the level of the mobile cellphone, whereas the first generation was used to only speak with each other. Now we use the cellphones in everything we do. Nofence has a very comparable potential, and we allow us selves to have huge ambitions. Not only in relation to volume and extent, but also when it comes to further development of the concept which will work as a platform where new concepts can be developed.
