NXT Farm: Full Stack Django/React Developer

NXT Farm

This is a Full-time position in Waterloo, QC posted February 12, 2021.

About the jobOur company, H2O Geomatics, focuses on making the most cutting edge satellite data available to everyone.

We have developed a revolutionary precision agriculture platform called NXT Farm, which you will be working on.

We are the first in the agtech industry to have developed satellite technology to remotely sense all aspects of crop health.

This has allowed our users to manage all aspects of their crop growth from space.

Our vision for this technology is to have this satellite data be used to autonomously manage all aspects of a farm.

This could more than double the world’s food supply while drastically decreasing the environmental impact.

We are going to be managing millions of acres this upcoming growing season and we need a talented developer to manage all aspects of improving this platform.

We currently have a multitude of extremely experienced advisors which include Chris Hadfield the first Canadian Commander of the ISS, Iain Christie the former CEO of Neptec Design Group, Daniel Debow a VP at Shopify, and many more.We work with many large agriculture companies in all corners of the world from the US and Canada to South Africa and Brazil.

Some of the companies that we currently work with include John Deere, Simplot and Agrimotion.

This position will give you the opportunity to join the team of a very fast growing startup and work on a project that has a huge global impact.

You will be given a lot of autonomy over how you execute your tasks and you will end up working on all aspects of the platform (frontend, backend, cloud infrastructure, etc).

As we expand, you will also have the opportunity to take a larger leadership role within the company.

ResponsibilitiesYour responsibilities will be centered around developing the back-end modules, DevOps (including APIs and microservices), web applications including REST APIs, microservices, and working on the integrations between back-end and front-end systems.

There will be some frontend development using leaflet to display GIS imagery, but it will be a smaller aspect of the role.
