Tech Lead Manager, Pricing Tools (Marketplace)

As a Tech Lead Manager of the Pricing Tools Team within our Grain Marketplace team, youll lead a team to create scalable, distributed systems that integrate with a rich ecosystem of services to power web and mobile applications.

Since grain is a commodity, farm profitability can be significantly impacted by how farmers time the market when they sell. Farmers typically get into farming to farm, not day trade. The Pricing Tools team is building a suite of products to help simplify this process, and help sellers manage risk. The team is building both the consumer-facing tools, as well as the internal tools necessary to build and manage these products.

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 Tech Lead Manager at Indigo, youll:

  • Manage a team using 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

“There are always going to be companies that think what worked in the past will work in the future, but this is a company that never wants to settle, in an industry that needs to refocus. What’s good for Indigo is what’s good for the grower, consumer, and the planet."

Manager, Engineering and Laboratory Operations

"Here, I have so much freedom—I get to really be creative. Not many companies do what Indigo does: It’s helping the farmer, it’s helping the planet. I really like the mission that the company stands by and the way they treat their employees. It doesn’t feel like you’re at work—this a very nice environment to be in. You want to work harder because you know they [other employees] have taken it so far. When you love what you’re doing, it doesn’t even feel like work."

Kelsey Steinbeck
Director, DevOps

"Working at Indigo allows me to make a positive impact on our Planet while also being part of industry disruption and innovation. I get to combine personal goals of doing positive things in the World while still getting to work on innovative technologies and solutions. It really can’t be beat!"
