We have less than 35 growing seasons to double food production in order to meet the needs of a nine-billion+ population. Yet Earth’s soil fertility is rapidly degrading and climate volatility is increasing, with the impacts being felt on the frontline by farmers, enterprises relying on crop supplies and governments setting policy.
Cervest is changing the landscape using cutting edge technology and statistical science to create ‘decision useful’ tools for our users. We are building an AI-powered platform that will empower our users to make better ‘risk aware’ decisions by predicting land productivity, simulating climate impacts and providing early warning signals.
We’re seeking an experienced front end engineer to join our team at an exciting time for our business. You’ll be helping to grow our success as an AI-first platform, building infrastructure, platform and user interfaces that will facilitate the practice of computational statistics and data science within our company and that will place the outputs in the hands of our clients.
From the outset you’ll be passionate about bringing the innovative approaches needed to establish a brand new category, and using your skills to leverage both business success and real change in the world. Reporting to Oliver Godby, Cervest’s Head of Engineering and Technology, you will play a crucial role in working on feature-rich, exciting user interfaces and setting the tone of the next five to ten years of innovation in this exciting company.
The role offers a unique opportunity to join an early-stage, highly mission-driven team where you’ll have the ability to make a significant impact on our company and our users.
We are a team of impatient optimists who want to make a lasting, positive and sustainable impact across the planet. We believe the benefits of AI should be accessible, affordable and used to empower those managing nature’s resources – growers, buyers and policymakers – to adapt to rising climate volatility.
We are also a pro-diversity company and passionate about bringing together people of all backgrounds, because we know that a diverse team will help us achieve our mission sooner.
Are you inspired by the power of technology, science and data to create a more sustainable world? If so, join us on our journey and help shape the future of our planet and humanity.
