Contribute to the world's most technologically advanced vertical farming system and mentor juniors along the way.

The Challenge :

Vertical farmers do it full stack. Do you want to grow your skills? Do you want to be involved in a start up in its rapid growth phase?

Are you agile minded enough to be able to help enhance a complex project right from day one? At Intelligent Growth Solutions we build cutting edge vertical farming hardware and the software to manage it at scale.

Following several years of research, we are now delivering to our first customers and if we do it right, we will change the world.

We will be converting experimental hardware and software in to scalable, maintainable and extensible enterprise grade product.

Now we need engineers to join out team to help realise that vision; do you have the intellect and flexibility to help? Are you interested in changing the face of farming so that we can feed the world?

As we continuously improve our products to deliver more value to our customers; we must continuously improve our processes, our architectures and ourselves.

The software architecture is necessarily complex and interfaces with an equally complex hardware system. Primarily using .

NET Core with Angular frontend to integrate multiple sub-systems with the farm management software. To sustain quality, it is vital that we are forward looking using cutting edge technologies and modern software practices.

Is this who you want to be?
