Software Engineer, UI

UI Software Engineer

As a UI Engineer on the Marketplace team, youll create web, mobile, and desktop applications that integrate with a rich ecosystem of services to power our Marketplace platform.

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 interface design and software architecture will help us deliver a world-class front-end to our growing suite of world-class marketplace products.

As a UI Engineer at Indigo youll:

  • Build user-facing features for our suite of applications. Today that means implementing React Components in Typescript, and integrating with our GraphQL APIs.
  • Contribute to our internal tools and libraries, looking to leverage shared components and infrastructure wherever possible.
  • Collaborate with product managers, back-end engineers, and data science engineers to spec, build, test and deploy high quality code in the cloud.
  • Learn applicable design patterns, refactoring code where necessary, to maintain organizational consistency.
  • Ensure that all applications are adequately tested in an automated framework, including functional and performance tests.
  • Review code, have your code reviewed, and learn from other engineers.

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.
