Harnessing nature to help farmers sustainably feed the planet

Tech Lead Manager, Delivery and Settlements (Marketplace)

As a Tech Lead Manager of The Delivery and Settlements Team within our Grain Marketplace Team, you’ll lead a team to create scalable, distributed systems that integrate with a rich ecosystem of services to power web and mobile applications. 

The Delivery and Settlements team is responsible for building out our customer-facing and internal-team-facing tools for handling the logistics of settling up a transaction after agreeing to a marketplace grain bid/offer. Some of these tools include a tool for allocating payment splits, a dashboard for tracking the deliveries of grain, a Q/A wizard to gather settlement terms, and notifications for important updates as payments are being issued.

Indigo Marketplace is changing how food is produced and sold—in the U.S. now, and soon around the world. Today, growers don’t have incentive to grow higher-quality crops. In fact, since grain is commoditized, growers’ main incentive is to simply grow as much volume as possible. 

Our Marketplace flips the current model on its head by connecting growers directly with buyers and preserving crop identity. This means that growers get paid a premium for growing organic and similarly desirable crops. 

Your expertise in building and leading high-performing engineering teams will help us deliver a world-class, scalable platform that secures Indigo as the leader in the agriculture technology space.

As a Technical Lead Manager at Indigo, you’ll:

  • Manage a team using modern tools - building apps in React, TypeScript, Node.js and GraphQL
  • Work closely with the PM team to define new projects and keep them moving from start to finish
  • Work cross-functionally with other Indigo Engineering groups, such as Data Science Engineering, DevOps, and GeoInnovation
  • Clarify priorities and goals for your team to ensure alignment with Indigo’s long-term objectives
  • Level up the engineers on your team by fostering a culture where people want to do their best work
  • Support career growth for team members in a fast-moving and rapidly scaling organization through active mentorship and coaching
  • Be part of the foundational group that puts Indigo on the map as one of the elite Engineering organizations

About You
