Pre-Series A

Seso provides web-based software solutions for agriculture employers and farmworkers. Immigration, transportation, workforce management, and HR - we eliminate those headaches.

The farm labor shortage has reached a crisis point. Every year, billions of dollars in crops rot in fields because agricultural employers simply cannot find labor - Seso is attacking this problem head on. Additionally, the industry is held back using telephones, spreadsheets, and fax machines - sound familiar?

Seso's people-to-people platform is rapidly transforming how farms and farm workers do business by unlocking the labor market - we are one of those rare companies that don't not merely satisfy a market, we grow it.

Active Roles

Why join us?

  • We have product market fit. Our revenue and customer base are growing rapidly. We are growing rapidly. We recently raised $6 million in funding and are just getting started. Year over year, revenue and company size has doubled.

  • We are in a huge market that no one has been able to dominate yet — agriculture accounts for ~2% of all employment (equal to $90b in payroll!). The service providers for recruiting, onboarding, managing, and paying farmworkers are antiquated and highly fragmented.

  • It's still early! Our product/engineering team is lean, (head of product, product designer, and six software engineers). We are looking to double our engineering team this year and there is tremendous opportunity to own entire initiatives and manage a team.

  • Our code is very - very - clean. Seriously. Well tested and typed (Typescript) - building features in our codebase is a breeze (and fast).

    Our engineering processes are battle tested and ruthlessly tuned to maintain developer velocity and happiness - it doesn't get better than this.

  • Our team is passionate about a mission that impacts real people every day. Our customers are desperately looking for viable sources of labor and tools to help them manage workers and a complicated regulatory environment.

    On the worker side, we are providing employment opportunities and eventually banking services to thousands of migrant workers.

  • We have outstanding investors and experienced founders. We are backed by Founders Fund, NfX, executives at DoorDash, Trulia, Plaid (CTO), AutoDesk, WorkRise, OpenDoor & More.


Engineering at Seso Inc.

Engineering team and processes

We have 'Maker Standup' every day at 10am PT where engineers, designers, and product teams have a touch-base and discuss on going projects and any blockers/issues.

Engineers work very closely with designers and other teams frequently - working alone is the worst! Don't do it!

All engineers are full-stack - we own our features from planning, to implementation, to delivery.

We use Pull Requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews. All engineers are also empowered to push code to production - and we do it all the time (we are doing it right now).

Technical Challenges

We develop technology so farmers can connect with farm laborer - we facilitate economic opportunities and help local communities.

For us, technology is a way to empower people economically, not exploit or replace them. The global agriculture industry operates using paper, spreadsheets and fax machines. We need to map all of this complexity and automate it using software.

The industry we're in is very complicated and building a simple user experience is hard. One of our 'super powers' is our seamless approach to making users feel like they work in our office - it makes our feedback loop exceptionally short, which is extremely rewarding.

Our engineers have the opportunity to work on projects that touch every aspect of SESO and are seen and used by everyone in the industry. Whether you are building on our financial solutions stack, hardening our data security infrastructure, or directly coordinating the movement of laborers - you'll be surrounded by elite and motivated engineers supporting you along the way.

Projects you might work on
  • Workforce Management!

    We offer the world's only farm labor market place giving farmers the ability to coordinate laborers, harvests, and finances simply and efficiently. We enable farmers to manage and move farm workers and their data on a single platform.

  • SESO Financial Solutions!

    Build financial services products for the agriculture industry. Banking services, remittances - you name it, we are doing it. Let's save workers from getting charged excessive fees to cash paper checks at convenience stores.

  • Applicant Tracking and Onboarding!

    Build Applicant Tracking, Workforce Management, and HR Software to help agricultural employers attract and manage their workforce across the world in a humane and cost effective manner.

React
PostgreSQL

Working at Seso Inc.

We love to build software

To put it mildly - we are ruthlessly committed to maintaining developer happiness and velocity. We invest heavily in making the process of building software better, faster, and more fun - we literally joke about how pleasant our codebase is to work in. It doesn't get better than this.

On top of that, we love our impact - we are helping farmers and farm laborers feed people. How is this not awesome?

Perks & benefits
  • Generous Vacation

    Seso offers unlimited vacation to all full time employees. Most of us will at times work on weekends, respond to emails at odd hours, and take afternoons off for personal time. We don't track hours worked per day or week, so why would we track and limit the number of vacation days you can take per year?

    Unlimited Vacation starts from the top, and Seso's cofounders encourage employees to take as much time as needed.

  • Beautiful Office

    If you are based out of the Bay Area, you can work out of our Jackson Square office whenever you'd like.

  • Social impact driven
  • Work from Home

    Many of our engineers are remote, and those based in the bay area usually work from home 3x a week.

  • Flexible Hours

    We value output, not facetime (or slack online time).

  • Health Insurance
  • Team Activities

    We regularly enjoy team dinners at awesome SF restaurants, and do several team-wide retreats a year.

  • Maternal/Paternal Leave
  • Company Retreats
