About Indigo

Indigo Ag is a mission-driven company dedicated to harnessing nature to help farmers sustainably feed the planet. We innovate across a breadth of technology and science disciplines to help enhance agriculture's long-term sustainability and profitability and mitigate the climate crisis. We seek to positively impact the world through the digital and biological solutions we bring to the market, creating a more resilient earth, healthier economies, and thriving communities. Our people build partnerships, explore the science, and engineer the technology to help grow the future of sustainable agriculture. The only way to achieve it is through a unique combination of expertise – from Fortune 500 to academia, soil science and agriculture, to tech start-ups.

As a Director of Engineering, you will guide a large part of our Engineering team to build the best Software for our Users in a scalable and reliable way, while creating delightful product experiences. The work of your team will span the entirety of the Carbon Farming user journey, Front End and Back End.

The specific mission of Indigo Carbon is to facilitate removing Carbon Dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere through helping farmers transition to “regenerative” practices, which have been shown to draw carbon from the air into the soil as well as reduce emissions of things like Methane and Nitrous Oxide (this is often called Carbon Farming). Applying this globally at scale is by some margin the single most powerful decarbonization mechanism currently known.

Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with Product, Design, Research, and other functional experts to shape a shared, data-driven engineering vision for your Team
  • Cultivate a culture of execution excellence and rigor
  • Support, develop and grow a healthy Engineering team
  • Provide technical leadership and mentorship to Software Engineers across Carbon and Indigo overall
  • Partner with Product, Design, and cross-functional teams to inform, influence, support, and execute product strategy and investments

Competencies:

  • Have successfully run one or more engineering teams from architecture through release, maintenance, and support
  • Are self-directed and enjoy building server-side & client-side applications, as well as figuring out the most important problem to work on
  • Own problems end-to-end, and are willing to pick up whatever knowledge you're missing to get the job done
  • Enjoy collaborating across multiple disciplines, including product, design, and data science
  • Know how to communicate in a remote-first environment
  • Believe in the model of servant leadership and extreme ownership
  • You are passionate about creating good user experiences

Qualifications:

  • 7+ years of experience in Software Engineering or a similar role
  • 3+ years managing software engineering teams
  • Experience Managing Managers
  • Track record of shipping consumer web applications with end-to-end ownership (Front End and Back End)
  • Experience initiating and driving projects to completion with minimal guidance
  • Demonstrated experience in hiring, retaining, and scaling high-performing teams

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Ph.D or Masters or a Graduate Degree in Computer Science, Math, Statistics, Physics, Engineering, or related quantitative field 
  • Experience in a startup environment
  • Experience with Agriculture in some form is a big plus

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.

Jyoti

Principal Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since joining Indigo in 2018, I’ve launched our agronomist drone program, program managed an international soil health innovation competition, evangelized for our geospatial data analytics team, and built a decision-making tool to help growers begin their regenerative journey. The only thing that limits your career at Indigo, is your own curiosity.

Alison

Sr. Product Manager

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.
