<div>Do you want to work for a mission-driven non-profit, writing software that will contribute to helping millions of coffee farmers out of poverty?

Our Core Engineering Team is a five-person team (soon to be seven!) and is part of our Engineering & Data Group — a quirky, talented, and humble group of about twenty with diverse backgrounds ranging from journalism to academia to international industry. While our current core engineering team is primarily located in the United States, we’re open to candidates located almost anywhere.</div><div><br></div><div><br></div><div><b style="font-size: 18px">About Our Core Engineering Team</b></div><div>The Core Engineering Team builds software to collect, analyze, and report data about coffee farmers’ conditions and practices. This large-scale data-collection effort requires many moving parts to work together, and we use technology to support that effort at every step of the process — from identifying coffee farms in satellite imagery, to coordinating survey edits across country teams, to detecting data anomalies in real-time that can be investigated while teams are still in the field. Our work supports our Operations Teams in authoring surveys and deploying surveyors, our Data Team in analyzing field data, and our Partnerships and Data Visualization Teams in creating clear insights for our clients.</div><div><br></div><div>While our tooling varies across internal products, our backend services primarily use a Python/PostgreSQL stack running on Linux to run our GraphQL APIs. We use git and Github for maintaining our code, CircleCI for CI/CD, and AWS for hosting our services and static resources, with containerization where appropriate for development and deployment.</div><div><br></div><div><br></div><div><br></div>
