We’re an international agtech startup pioneering an ambitious mission in a high growth industry where agriculture meets technology to solve our toughest climate and economic challenges. Through the use of data-driven insights, natural microbiology, and innovative digital technologies, Indigo is partnering across the supply chain, ultimately cultivating a scalable climate solution and enhanced partner ecosystem that beneficially serves farmers, consumers, and the planet alike.

Our mission is unique, and therefore our teams are too: from multigenerational farming experts who understand the land as though it were an extension of themselves, to cutting-edge technologists and scientists on the frontier of innovation, our teams are a reflection of the range of the stakeholders we serve: the Earth, the Farmer, and the Consumer.

Director, Business Intelligence

We are currently seeking a director of Business Intelligence (BI) to drive analytic services and BI for the company. This is an opportunity to head a team of experienced analysts in lighting up one of the most diverse and fast-changing enterprise datasets in the world. Our teams daily interact with millions of bushels of grain transactions, thousands of miles of transportation services events, billions of satellite and on-farm agronomic data points, and millions of digital customer records and digital marketing events. BI at Indigo plays a critical role in translating all of that data into the stable, repeatable KPIs and metrics that drive our business decisions and operations.

When it comes to technology and tools, you should come with conviction and practical experience working with cutting-edge platforms that enable scale in the BI function. Close partnering with Indigo’s Data Platform team is essential, to generate the data marts and other database structures to make BI at scale possible. An obsession with delivering accurate, actionable, granular insights in support of Indigo’s mission is a must. Data has a big impact at Indigo, and the Director of BI plays a key role in the success of our mission to help farmers sustainably feed the planet.

  • Create connectivity to the Data Engineering group so that there's a shared understanding of what data needs to be added to our Data Platform and in what formats in order to make the data ready for business requirements.
  • Boost the efficiency of Indigo employees by maintaining a robust training and enablement program for ad hoc analytics and data analysis; identify the relevant generalist platform(s) for such analyses and enable early-stage or one-off analyses from the relevant operations, offering, commercial, or financial teams.

An Insider's view of Indigo

What projects are you most excited about?

Our mission is to provide agronomists with unbiased real-time data we are collecting across thousands of acres at the ground level and from space. It's such a thrill to be working on the data and analysis perspective of this massively cross-disciplinary team that helps agronomists initiate data-powered conversations to provide substantial results.

How does the company support your career growth?

Since joining Indigo in 2018, my manager has always provided me with great feedback and room to focus on growing my skills from a dedicated API Engineer to having a strong full stack foundation. Simultaneously I’ve been encouraged to pursue a Tech Lead Manager role; a position I now occupy thanks to my hard work and the company's trust and support.
