My name is Netta. I moved to California 6 years ago from Israel, where I was a creative producer for corporate and cultural events. When I moved to the bay area, I was drawn into the fast startup world. I love being a part of small teams trying to do something huge! It means I get to wear various ops related hats It's helped me become sort of a jack-of-all-ops :) Long before joining Agwa I had been a plant-based nutrition advocate and lover of salads, so combining my love for small teams and big missions with my passion for veggies has been all the more fun!
My name is Yoav, I live in Moshav Shezor in the north of Israel. I'm an experienced software engineer and my areas of expertise are mobile, web and backend development. Growing in a Moshav, to a family of traditional agricultures, I'm thrilled to be part of a company that advances agricultural technology.
