About DAS – Digital Agriculture Services

Our mission at Digital Agriculture Services (DAS) is to put science into the hands of decision makers. We are a technology company that delivers location intelligence for financial services and agri-enterprises, with a unified system of data, workflow, CRM and integration tools.

We’re not agtech – we’re a fintech focused on agriculture that’s working to create a strategic advantage for some of the world’s leading financial services and agri-enterprises. We’re accelerating innovation across the entire agri-enterprise ecosystem – with decision makers using DAS’ unique ecosystem of products and services to get the multi-dimensional intelligence they need to lend, insure, invest and sell better.

DAS is the location intelligence leader in Australia with a rural intelligence and risk platform that leading agri-financial and enterprises depend on. DAS was established in 2017 in partnership with CSIRO, Australia’s national science and research agency, the company’s founding equity partner.

We are a diverse and driven team of highly experienced people who love what they do and are excited about this next stage of the DAS journey – which will see us expand and go global – with work that is at the intersection of finance and climate. If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of, get in touch or apply now.
