Want to make a difference?
YAGRO is an award winning agritech company based in Cambridge. We are a tight team of farmers, technologists, and entrepreneurs. We enjoy working together. We do this first and foremost for the farmer. We are not afraid to speak the truth and challenge dogma.
In 2019 we were awarded a grant from Innovate UK, the government’s technology funding arm, to develop a comprehensive Commercial Intelligence System – a tool to bring all critical business information in one place for a farm. It is internationally groundbreaking. But the volume and complexity of data is significant, and we need the very best people to help us crack this for farmers.
That’s where you come in.
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 ambition.
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 be one of the core hires at Yagro, joining an experienced and ambitious team, and will play a leading role in shaping and delivering the company’s vision to 2021 and beyond.
We are looking for people who are keen to learn more about and gain practical experience with:
- Postgres database
- iOS and Android Apps
- Kubernetes, AWS and docker
We are creating meaningful, lasting software which delivers and immediate impact to our customers. We have ready demand for the next generation of our platform, which will focus on predictive data analytics and enterprise insights. Alongside this, our current core platform will be deployed across multiple instances including international, requiring sharp deployment management.
What makes you tick?
- You want to make an impact. You’re driven, entrepreneurial and not afraid to take responsibility.
- You care about the whole development process: with a small team we have to take the responsibility for design, research, testing, deployments and operations.
- You love delving into details, and finding truth and insight from data.
- You love learning.
Who are you?
- A student or early career professional, looking for a new experience in the agriculture tech industry.
- Eligible to work in the UK
- We don’t define anything else. We value all types of backgrounds and experience. It’s who they’ve made you today that we’re interested in.
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!
To apply, please email a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
