90 jobs to be added at tech company's Sioux Falls operations center


Farmers Business Network (FBNSM), a California-based technology company, is adding more than 90 jobs at its national operations center in Sioux Falls. The positions will be added over the next two years, with 40 new positions this year, tripling its current employee count.
           
FBN is an independent and trusted farmer-to-farmer network, connecting ag producers so they can share farm data and gain insights to help make the best agronomic and financial decisions. FBN members receive comprehensive yield benchmarking, seed performance analysis and agronomic analytics based on over 55 million acre-events of real world data from the FBN community.
           
FBN’s growth in South Dakota comes at a time of unprecedented growth for the company, which has grown to more than 8.5 million acres held by thousands of member farmers in 30 states since the network’s launch in 2015.
           
 “The core business model of Farmers Business Network is firmly rooted in two of Sioux Falls’ most critical industries, information technology and 21st century agriculture,” said Sioux Falls Development Foundation vice president Dean Dziedzic. “The addition of 90 new employees to the company’s proven Sioux Falls location will make FBN a vital resource to ag producers throughout the Midwest. We congratulate FBN on their growing South Dakota operation.”
