As a Senior Engineering Manager of Marketplace, youll lead a team to create scalable, distributed systems that integrate with a rich ecosystem of services to power web and mobile applications.

Indigo Marketplace is changing how food is produced and soldin the U.S. now, and soon around the world. Today, growers dont have incentive to grow higher-quality crops. In fact, since grain is commoditized, growers main incentive is to simply grow as much volume as possible.

Our Marketplace flips the current model on its head by connecting growers directly with buyers and preserving crop identity. This means that growers get paid a premium for growing organic and similarly desirable crops.

Your expertise in building and leading high-performing engineering teams will help us deliver a world-class, scalable platform that secures Indigo as the leader in the agriculture technology space.

As a Senior Manager at Indigo, youll:

  • Manage teams that use modern tools - building apps in React, TypeScript, Node.js and GraphQL
  • Work closely with the PM team to define new projects and keep them moving from start to finish
  • Work cross-functionally with other Indigo Engineering groups such as Data Science Engineering, DevOps and GeoInnovation
  • Clarify priorities and goals for your team to ensure alignment with Indigos long-term objectives
  • Level up the engineers on your team by fostering a culture where people want to do their best work
  • Support career growth for team members in a fast-moving and rapidly scaling organization through active mentorship and coaching
  • Be part of the foundational group that puts Indigo on the map as one of the elite Engineering organizations

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.
