Junior/Graduate Software Engineer  

The agricultural industry is undergoing a profound change. Tightening regulatory requirements, reduced subsidies and changing sustainability needs of the society. These are a few of the wider trends in the sector that require farmers to change their approach and sharpen their focus. Data and technology give farmers the insight and opportunity to reverse the long-term decline in profitability and optimise their businesses for the future.

Want to make a difference?

Yagro is on a mission to help farmers become more financially sustainable, by offering breakthrough software tools and commercial insight. We’re developing a trusted, independent data platform for farmers to gain visibility and control over their business and get the edge in the market.

The opportunity is massive. Come capture it with us. 

Up for a challenge? 

We are an established, award-winning leader in commercial AgTech software, with hundreds of UK farming customers, strong revenue since launch in 2016, and long term financial support to reach our mission: make farming profitable, sustainable and Net Zero. 

We are operating within an industry characterised by manual processes and poor information exchange. We need to distil a complex and opaque supply chain with multiple actors into a simple, elegant and scalable multi-user platform, with industry-leading analytics and data insight and a flawless user experience.

That’s where you come in. 

You’ll join the core engineering team at Yagro, an experienced and ambitious group of people, and will play a leading role in shaping and delivering the company’s vision to 2025 and beyond.
We are looking for people with some of the following skills that would like to develop other skills: 

  • Python/Django/SQLAlchemy
  • JavaScript & Vue.js framework
  • Postgres, relational databases
  • iOS and Android Apps
  • Kubernetes, AWS and Docker

We need you to create meaningful, lasting software which delivers and immediate impact to our customers. We have ready demand for the next generation of our plat-form, which will focus on predictive data analytics and enterprise insights. Along-side this, our current core platform will be deployed across multiple instances including international, requiring sharp deployment management.

What are we looking for? 

  • A smart developer who has experience delivering great quality products to customers.
  • This is a web service, so knowledge of databases, web frameworks, browsers, mobile apps, UI and UX.
  • Someone who cares about the whole development process: with a small team we have to take the responsibility for design, research, testing, deployments and operations.
  • Responsibility, as you will own projects.
  • An active participant in a learning environment and desire to iteratively improve yourself, the team and the company as a whole.
  • No time for nonsense – just love getting shit done.

Above all, you’re excited by our vision and share our core values: we’re always learning; always looking for new challenges; we inspire each other; we are open and honest; we trust each other and aren’t afraid to give or accept responsibility and autonomy; and we have fun! 

For the right person, there’s a strong salary, whatever equipment you need and a license to transform an industry and improve the lives of users across the globe. 

To apply, please email a CV to info@yagro.com together with a brief cover note. We’re interested in what you’ve done, but what we really care about is where you’re going.
