Role Description

We are looking for a full stack software engineer to join our team. Our mission is to enable fish and shrimp farms to improve their efficiency and sustainability so that in 50 years we still have bountiful, healthy seafood without emptying our oceans. While technology has revolutionized the other sectors of our food system, aquaculture has been left behind. We are bringing aquaculture up-to-date by enabling farmers to collect real-time, high-fidelity water quality data so they can feed more efficiently and reduce their high mortality rates. We’re doing this by combining optical sensing and computer vision in an innovative multi-parameter sensor that is simpler to maintain and costs 90% less than anything else out there.

Looking to use your engineering skills to build a more sustainable world? We encourage you to apply!

What You’ll Do: - Work with our team of engineers and scientists to: - Build and deploy our farm-monitoring web app frontend, backend, and APIs - Apply your expertise in architecture and framework choices - Build tools to support our R&D team as we expand our sensor’s capabilities - Travel to national and international sites to gain better understanding of users and use cases - Actively shape our product development and the future of our company

Role Requirements: - Expertise in at least one modern language: Python, Javascript, Ruby, C#, Java, etc - Knowledge of the elements of modern web architecture and the ability to help decide when to use them, e.g. GraphQL vs. REST, relational vs. document stores - 2+ years professional programming experience - Excellent problem-solving, analytical, and troubleshooting skills. Attention to detail. - Strong communication: superb speaking, listening, and writing skills - Ability to engage in and contribute to productive discussions on complex topics - Ability to build shared understanding, and to commit in the face of unresolved ambiguity - Willingness to engage with real-time online collaboration tools - Knack for understanding how business requirements drive technical solutions - Drive to use your engineering skills to make a positive impact in the world

Qualities That Will Stand Out to Us: You have demonstrated in your career multiple examples of: - Technical capability: You are technically curious and tackle problems without giving up. You produce solutions that less-experienced folks can use, maintain, and learn from. - Collaboration: You are driven by the collective output of your team. You work hard to reach a level of trust with your teammates where candid feedback can flow freely. - Leadership: You know how to develop and follow a sense of purpose in yourself and in others. You are willing to point out, own, and fix things that are broken. - Intellectual Curiosity: You are broadly curious across multiple disciplines. This curiosity has led you to contribute beyond your area of expertise to advance your team toward reaching its goals.

Competitive Perks: - Option to work 80% time - Option to work remotely - Technology purchase stipend (laptops, headphones, etc.) - The office is one block from 19th St BART in Oakland (and next to a rock climbing gym) - Seed-stage salary + equity package - Health + dental insurance (company pays 70%) - 18 days PTO + 18 days unpaid time off per year + 11 paid holidays - Free breakfast & lunch (cook your own!). We have a full kitchen and the company will provide whatever vegetarian groceries you want to cook for yourself (within reason). - Learn and grow in ways that you only can at an early stage startup

Company Culture

We strive to always do the right work and do it well. We believe most decisions should be made collaboratively and are firm believers in scrum. While we're working on tackling a very serious problem (overfishing), we generally don't take ourselves too seriously. We love board games and traveling as a team.
