Description: 

Agriculture is not the same as it was twenty years ago, and it won’t be the same twenty years from now. Climate conditions are changing. The world needs more food from the same arable land. Consumer preferences and regulations are evolving. Public expectations are rising and accountability matters more. And farmers need to respond to these changing dynamics - they are at the core of our food system and our planet.

Granular creates Farm Management Software and land valuation software, AcreValue, that empowers farms to become more valuable businesses, for today and for the future. We take a user-centric development and design approach to develop products that are simple to use that our farmers love! We are a startup funded by top investors (Andreessen and Horowitz, Google Ventures, Khosla Ventures and Tao Capital).

We are looking for a Senior Front-end Engineer to join our team full time in Champaign, IL.  You will have the opportunity to be a part of a top San Francisco start-up while enjoying the benefits of living in the Midwest.

  • Create new and/or optimize existing application pages to be responsive, amazingly fast, and easy-to-maintain by other engineers
  • Designing and building an application our farmers can use in the office and in the field.
  • Create an application that aggregates and analyzes terabytes of data about soils, climate, crop rotations, taxes, interest rates, and corn prices to calculate the estimated value of an individual field.
  • Work directly with the product and design team to create a compelling user experience that is easy to use, and fast to implement.
  • Build a workflow that is simple for our farmers to use, yet captures the complexity of managing a professional farm.
