Apollo Agriculture is seeking a Software Engineer to help us change how African farmers access credit, customized advice, and farm inputs at radical scale. We are looking for someone with a strong understanding of computer science, excellent software engineering fundamentals and a genuine desire to grow. We're looking for a person who can not only own a project and drive it to completion but who can also grow into being a leader at our company.
The software engineer will be responsible for contributing to our core software systems. We use software throughout all the operations of our company. From marketing to lending, from repayment to credit rating, we’re constantly automating and improving pieces of our company. We use Scala and Postgresql on the backend and develop our frontends for Android and React.
Apollo Agriculture uses satellite data, machine learning, and mobile phones to help African farmers increase their production from current levels (~650 kg/acre) to U.S. levels (~4500 kg/acre). We are a team of software engineers, data scientists, economists, and operators with deep experience from The Climate Corporation, One Acre Fund, Google, and ACRE. We value evangelical pursuit of mission with a pragmatic approach, humility in the face of challenge, active discussion of disagreements, and considerate listening.
This position reports to the Head of Engineering.
