About Iron Ox

Iron Ox is building robotic greenhouses to bring fresh and affordable produce to everyone. We're a team from Willow Garage, Google[x], and Savioke that are passionate about deeply understanding and developing the new wave of technology to feed people. Iron Ox is a well-funded startup backed by Y Combinator and located in the SF Bay Area.

Who we're looking for

We take a systems approach to automating the farm, from multiple different robots to IoT sensors. We are looking for a full-stack developer to help engineer the cloud software that will orchestrate the entire greenhouse, including quickly processing hundreds of data points from our sensors, sending actions to robots for tasks that need to be performed and visual interfaces to monitor the state of the farm. You will also develop software for our IoT sensors and work closely with our cross-disciplinary team.
