FULL STACK SOFTWARE ENGINEER - Multiple Hires
Grain Discovery is an agtech/blockchain startup aiming to revolutionize how agricultural commodities are traded globally. We have built a working prototype of a blockchain based online trading marketplace, and in December successfully completed the world's first corn trade from grower to buyer. Our banking partner transacted funds read from the Grain Discovery blockchain - another milestone.
In addition to building an online marketplace our goal is help build an agricultural commodity blockchain capable of tracking the provenance of food from the end consumer all the way back to the original grower. Increasingly, people want to know where their food originated and how it was produced - think non-GMO, organic, fair trade, sustainable or single origin. Our technology enables a commodity to have a digital passport proving its authenticity and source of origin as it moves through the supply chain.
The founders have many years of experience in the commodity and financial markets as traders and quants managing portfolios in the billions of dollars and recognized the potential of blockchain early on.
As an early stage startup, we are looking for people who want more than to be an employee completing assigned tasks. We are looking for entrepreneurial people with a passion to help grow a company from the ground up. This is an opportunity to be involved in strategy and blue-sky thinking and as such will require both flexibility and creativity as the job evolves in pace with the company itself. The size of our addressable market is enormous, so the potential upside is considerable. Competitive salary, with equity.
Curiosity and ambition, we are looking for somebody who wants to be part of building a startup from the ground up.
Creativity, this is an opportunity to be involving in shaping the blockchain strategy of our company. Ideas and input at all levels in the business is welcome.
