ste­non GmbH - AgTech Star­tup

We are deve­lo­ping a labo­ra­tory inde­pen­dent real-time soil ana­ly­sis. Enab­ling pre­cision agri­cul­ture by making data acces­si­ble.

Paid intern­ship (3 to 6 months) in the field of envir­on­ment / Greentech / Soil-Sci­ence

Work­ing field:

As part of the devel­op­ment of a soil sensor for agri­cul­ture, we are look­ing for sup­port in the field of soil sci­ence / envir­on­mental sci­ence / pro­to­type test­ing (Gen­eral inform­a­tion about us: see

Stenon is a start-up that is devel­op­ing a mobile soil labor­at­ory for the real-time meas­ure­ment of soil para­met­ers. We are cur­rently test­ing the first pro­to­types before the product is ready for the mar­ket. There­fore, we are cur­rently in an Inter­est­ing phase where we need fur­ther sup­port to pre­pare and con­duct ground exper­i­ments to val­id­ate the pro­to­types.

The cur­rent main tasks are

1. sci­entific work in the soil labor­at­ory
  • Pot exper­i­ments
  • Cal­ib­ra­tion of the sensors
  • Sampling and pre­par­a­tion
  • Mois­ture ana­lyzes
  • Real time meas­ure­ment data com­par­ison
  • Pre­par­a­tion and mix­ing of dif­fer­ent soils
Place of work: Hauptstr. 36b, 14476 Pots­dam - OT Marquardt: Research sta­tion of the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Agri­cul­tural Engin­eer­ing and Bioeco­nom­ics e.V. (ATB). A pick-up from Marquardt sta­tion is pos­sible.

2. Field exper­i­ments:
Meas­ur­ing cam­paigns are con­tinu­ously being con­duc­ted on trial fields of the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Veget­able and Orna­mental Crops (IGZ) as well as on other agri­cul­tural areas.
Activ­it­ies dur­ing the field exper­i­ments:
  • Oper­a­tion of our newly developed pro­to­type under real con­di­tions
  • Assist­ance in the design and exe­cu­tion of exper­i­ments
  • Doc­u­ment­a­tion of the run­ning exper­i­ments
Work­place: Groß­beeren (Theodor-Echter­meyer-Weg 1), on a nearby exper­i­mental field or chan­ging loc­a­tions in dif­fer­ent fields. Trans­port to and from Pots­dam or pick-up from the train sta­tion in Groß­beeren is guar­an­teed

3. In the office:
The doc­u­ment­a­tion of meas­ure­ment data, the ana­lysis of ana­lysis data and the research on cur­rent envir­on­mental sci­ence issues are tasks that are car­ried out con­tinu­ously as needed. It is also often an oppor­tun­ity to gain insights into the other areas of stenon. In our hard­ware lab you can learn how the devices are assembled and improved. In the soft­ware depart­ment, you gain insights into the IT struc­tures and pro­cesses that make it pos­sible to save, pro­cess, for­ward and visu­al­ize the data. In the data sci­ence depart­ment, you can learn how to model soil para­met­ers using the sensor data meas­ured in the field.


A back­ground in envir­on­mental sci­ence is desir­able but not a must.
The field exper­i­ments take place out­side, which is why you should like to work in the open air. Fur­ther­more, you should be able to work con­scien­tiously, goal-ori­ented and struc­tured.
If you enjoy a mix of phys­ical and cog­nit­ive work and are motiv­ated to work in a mul­tidiscip­lin­ary and innov­at­ive team, then you've come to the right place.
