Job Description

With us, we’re transforming the $3 trillion agriculture industry with two products, our Farm Management Software (FMS) and AcreValue. Our typical customer is a multi-generational, large family farm looking for software to help them get more done and make better decisions. We collaborate closely with customers and industry experts to guide our efforts and build our products. We’ve had an exciting 3+ years of building product and growing our customer base (we have customers in over 40 states and help them manage over 1.5 million acres of farmland) and are looking to grow our team to continue our exciting trajectory.

We are a startup funded by Andreessen, Google Ventures, Khosla Ventures and Tao Capital.

We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join our team working on our FMS or AcreValue products.

WHAT YOU'LL BE WORKING ON

Work closely with other developers, product managers, data science and design to develop a high-performance, scalable web application for enterprise use.

Designing and building an application our farmers can use in the office and in the field.

Create an application that aggregates and analyzes terabytes of data about soils, climate, crop rotations, taxes, interest rates, and corn prices to calculate the estimated value of an individual field.

Work directly with the product and design team to create a compelling user experience that is easy to use, and fast to implement.

Build a workflow that is simple for our farmers to use, yet captures the complexity of managing a professional farm.

Scale the product and team. There is a need, and flexibility for, horizontal and upward mobility.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

No farming/agriculture knowledge required!

7+ years of experience developing user-friendly web applications in a fast-paced environment

Strong sense for high-quality user experience.

Significant experience with a variety of modern web application technologies.

Specific experience with or desire to learn technologies including Python (including Pyramid, Django), MongoDB and PostgreSQL. 

Experience building scalable web applications

Knowledge and experience with DevOps, monitoring, continuous integration, etc. a plus.

Excellent software design skills, code quality and attention to detail.

Background in analysis and visualization of geospatial data a plus.

Strong communication and collaboration skills.

The passion for revolutionizing the agriculture industry with your hard earned engineering skills!

B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent experience.

Start-up experience a plus.

PERKS

We value diversity and treat every employee with a high degree of autonomy and respect.

Have a big impact by joining a small, fast-paced, smart team. We are having fun building a great company and helping one of the most important industries in the world.

Competitive salary, commission program, and stock options.

Medical, dental, vision and 401(K) benefits.

With us, perks are more than free lunches and happy hour (which we have). We offer a team where you can grow, a professional development path, respect for life outside of work and a stipend for educational conferences.
