Lettuce Introduce Ourselves
Jose was born and raised in Valencia, Venezuela, where he spent his childhood days in the back of his parents’ hardware store, learning how to use every tool on the shelf. This led him to earn a degree in Civil Engineering from Jose Antonio Paez University, Valencia, Venezuela; with a concentration in both Autocad and Solidworks. After working as a Assistant Civil Drafter and Field Inspector Engineer in Venezuela, Jose moved to Florida in 2019 to join a box-making machine company as a Machinist, focused on basic CNC programming and operation.
In 2021, Jose saw a job listing that brought back memories of his home country and its strong tradition of homegrown local cuisine. He knew he could use his knowledge of Mechanical Engineering and Automation to change the way we grow our food, with low impact on our ecosystem, to produce large quantities of the fresh delicious produce he remembers from his childhood. We are thrilled to have Jose on our team at Imagine Farms as the Maintenance Supervisor.
