About the role...

We are looking for a GIS/Spacial Data Systems Engineer to join our growing team. The Engineering team works closely with crop scientists, data scientists, bioinformaticians, and quantitative geneticists to solve problems at the intersection of breeding, gene editing and agronomy. You will help us develop and scale our computational/data science, data processing, storage and overall software platforms. The role will be based at the company headquarters in Cambridge, MA or at our office in West Lafayette, IN.

As a GIS/Spacial Data Systems Engineer, you will

  • Develop applications that operate on GIS and/or spatial data
  • Work with breeders, scientists, and other engineers to develop tools to enable our crops team to make decisions
  • Build APIs to make data, models and general system functionality accessible to data scientists for model development and analytics
  • Partner with data scientists, plant breeders and agronomists to develop, scale and manage pipelines, applications, and analysis projects
  • Develop and productionalize data pipelines or other custom applications that integrate with and extend our breeding, phenotyping, field trial analytics, and overall agronomic data platforms to process spatial and environmental data sets
  • Develop robust integrations with strategic third party tools, platforms and models
  • Contribute to design and roadmap for overall computational platform

You bring

  • Experience with working with GIS/spatial datasets and interested in developing applications that are data-driven
  • Experience with visualization tools such as tableau, carto, descartes, or D3.
  • Solid foundation in computer science, including algorithms and data structures
  • Significant experience with professional software engineering, including automated testing, agile methodologies, pair programming, refactoring, relational databases, and microservices
  • Extensive experience extracting, modeling, and manipulating data: sql / nosql
  • Extensive experience with object oriented programming: Python, Go, Scala, or Java

Software Engineer

I never saw myself in agriculture, but when talking to the scientists here I could see the opportunity to help build computational platforms that supports a company mission that feeds the world. When I started interviewing I saw the potential for building new things at the intersection of engineering & data science -- that is what interested me most
