Front end Engineer

We are Connecterra:

We build an AI that will impact the future of our planet.
By the year 2050, the world population will be 9 billion. To provide for so many, food production needs to increase significantly. At this time over a billion people work in agriculture, half of them are farmers. Our technology helps them scale and feed the world.
As a full-stack technology company, our engineering challenges range from designing hardware sensors to building a machine learning platform, a farmers’ assistant that can run a dairy farm more effective than a human. We call it Ida. She learns about the behavior of farmers and cows, then provides guidance on making better decisions.
Join us to build an AI that has purpose.
