Description

Indigo has a number of open roles for software engineers to build the transportation platform we use for moving grain after purchase on the marketplace. Software engineering tasks range from modeling the logic for a truck workflow, designing interfaces against design mockups, to writing form validation logic supporting a network of tens of thousands of carriers.

We look for a track record of the following:

  • Experience designing, implementing, and shipping production UI code (not necessarily related to logistics or shipping)
  • Having built the wrong system enough times to avoid the common pitfalls, whether building something personally or advising others
  • Willingness to debug problems across the stack, such as networking issues, performance problems, or memory leaks

You might be a good fit if you:

  • Know your way around a Unix shell
  • Are self-directed and enjoy designing great mobile experiences, as well as figuring out the most important problem to work on
  • Own problems end-to-end, and are willing to pick up whatever knowledge you're missing to get the job done
  • Are detail oriented, and like to get the system working but know when to cut corners versus getting it exactly right
  • Are interested in leading a team of engineers with future managerial responsibilities
In this role, you will work on a team with a mix of web and mobile developers towards a common goal.

I love the lab culture of Indigo. It's great being surrounded by both hard-working and fun-loving people. Most of our experiments are challenging and having the support of coworkers throughout the day really makes it fun for me.

From the early days when the whole company consisted of less than 20 people, I remember EVERYONE would gather for lively brainstorming sessions, the founder of the company, bench scientists, data scientists, lab techs, an attorney - everyone participated and listened and learned from each other's experiences and opinions. Today Indigo is much larger, but this spirit of open communication and collaboration is still strong. We collaborate through our everyday work, through software like our online innovation exchange where we bounce ideas off each other, and through "hands-on" brainstorming sessions where we learn a new assay and some of the points which are most challenging and can share ideas about how to make it more efficient.
