You have a proven track record of writing clean and performant code with emphasis on scalability.


Why you should work with us

Agrando is a project absolutely dear to our heart. We act by conviction in order to contribute to the progress of agriculture. Our main cause is to support the farmer because in the end, it's all about mutual care and cooperation. Agriculture is our home and our origin and we speak from our own experience and know about the specific needs, which makes us the perfect partner for the agricultural trading of the next centuries. We want to push the agricultural trade forward using state of the art technologies and constantly stay in motion by taking one step at a time while being excited about everything that comes along. Working with us means to make a difference and to help us developing a meaningful product that in the end has an impact on the future of sustainable agriculture and thus the food you eat everyday.


What you should bring

  • Great communication skills, ability to work in an agile team and workflow experience (git-flow, scrum, etc.)
  • 3+ years proven work experience with Django in a professional or institutional environment
  • Considerable experience building REST API services
  • Architecture and software design experience from at least one large commercial project
  • Demonstrable experience of database design and performance optimization
  • Experience with GraphQL a plus
  • Experience with cloud infrastructures (AWS, GCP) a plus
  • Experience with Stripe Payments a plus
  • General understanding of core computer programming, distributed systems, logic & cloud infrastructure
  • Open-mindedness and an attitude that encourages nurturing your skills, learning new ones while at the same time passing on knowledge in areas you excel
  • Passion for writing quality, high-performance and maintainable code following best practices by heart
  • Farming experience (just joking but having played Farming Simulator 2019 does count)


What to expect

As a Senior Backend Engineer at Agrando you will support us in the development and maintenance of our trading platform and its respective stakeholders (farmers, retailers, producers). You will make technologies or frameworks like Django Rest Framework, GraphQL, and CircleCI work for you and expand them to help the team. You will work in close collaboration with the Frontend team to build a seamless data exchange that is powerful and scalable. You will directly influence decisions supporting our DevOps, Analytics, Design, and Product departments while keeping yourself in sync with the Sales & Marketing team. You will be given an opportunity to learn and grow yourself in a friendly team environment that is using cutting edge technologies to change the world.
We can’t wait to meet you!
