Through the use of data-driven insights, natural microbiology, and innovative digital technologies, Indigo Ag helps farmers make farming more sustainable to combat climate change and protect the environment. Our grain, carbon, and transportation marketplaces enable farmers to profit from those sustainable choices.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join the Core Modeling team under the Carbon Engineering Team. The Core Modeling team at Indigo Ag is committed to crafting and maintaining trustworthy applications that help our growers move towards better, more efficient agricultural practices. This is a new team in the engineering organization, so it is a great opportunity to build something from the ground up in the latest tech stack and make a tangible impact on climate change in the process.

About this role:

As an engineer on the Carbon Team you will:

  • Collaborate with Scientists and Product Managers to spec, build, test, and deploy code.

  • Provide detailed and constructive design and code reviews, mentor junior engineers.

  • Be comfortable with working with uncertain requirements and help draft software requirements.


  • You are an independent self-starter, self-disciplined, who is collaborative and able to communicate with other teams of engineers and non-engineers.

  • You can communicate efficiently and effectively.

  • You are a fast learner and thrive in a fast-paced environment.

  • You have proven engineering and coding skills, data structure knowledge, and strong troubleshooting skills.

  • You have deep knowledge of software engineering and system design best practices.

  • You enjoy learning, have a talent for organization and breaking down large problems into smaller ones.

  • You enjoy mentoring others and sharing your knowledge.

  • You have experience working with large, complex datasets.

  • You have a degree in a Scientific or Engineering field, or equivalent work experience. A PhD is a plus, but certainly not required.

  • Experience with Python is a plus.

  • Experience working with scientists or working in a research environment is a big plus.

About Indigo:

We’re building the technology to feed the world and fight climate change. We believe that through teamwork we can achieve more to benefit all of agriculture: from farmers to consumers to the planet.
