As a Software Engineer, you are responsible for the development and maintenance of our automated farming solutions.

You help translate requirements to a solid software design. You play a proactive role in designing, improving, and guarding the software architecture.

  • Optimizing data structures and algorithms used in production.

  • You have working knowledge of Linux and Git. 
  • You approach problems from a system point of view. 
  • You can produce well-written documentation.

What do we offer you?

We offer..
