Software Engineer (Machine Learning Lead)
I am working with the new VP of Engineering at an established startup company located just outside of Boston. Currently they are right around 170+ employees and have just under $320M in funding. Looking to be a $1B+ company by 2020.
Over the next year they are going to be continuing to build out a brand-new software development team from the ground up. They are currently at around 15 people and I’ve placed 4 of their Engineering Leads there in varying capacities over the past few months.
The team itself will be building a large production data system that takes data from all sorts of IOT sensors and uses it to help qualify ideal growing conditions for farmers and food-producers across the globe. At this point the company has the hardware and science behind their product down – and it’s time to build out the software. The hope and goal here is that this product will allow for much more effective / sustainable agriculture across the globe - negating the need for the use of GMOs and large-scale 'chemical' farming operations globally.
The CTO I’m working with is someone I’ve helped build multiple teams with in the past. One of the key roles he’s looking to fill right now is a Data focused Java Engineering position. This is really a Machine Learning / Core Java Dev Role where you will be working with complex data-sets/algorithmic development. Hands-on up front, but definitely will be growing a team around you as you go.
Compensation is commensurate with experience. (Looking to hire the best and brightest so compensation is “not an issue” up front.)
If you are interested in hearing more about the role and company please connect with me on LinkedIn and send me a message regarding your interest OR you can send me an email here with an updated copy of your resume as well as the best time and number to reach you for a quick call.
