Brief of the Role

We are looking for a Solutions Engineer to join our fast-growing team. You will be responsible for researching, planning, evolving, and successfully integrating with our customers’ and partners’ systems. Integrations are at the core of our ability to provide highly customized solutions for our customers. We will look up to you to work directly with our customers and partners to become a subject matter expert, who can organize complex details and translate them into actions for our engineering team. To be successful at this role you must be resourceful and creative. You must love asking questions, diving into technical details, and solving challenging technical problems.

While we feel strongly about periodically being in person together, we operate a distributed-first team model. We are looking for the best regardless of where you live.

Required Skills

  • 3+ years of experience with REST APIs and/or complex systems like ERPs where the systematic handling of data is key.

  • Familiarity with data analysis tools and software like Excel, SQL, Python, R, or data visualization tools is crucial for handling and interpreting data efficiently.

  • An entrepreneurial spirit and drive to work on complex problems at scale.

  • Motivated by finding ways to simplify complexity.

  • Ability to search for and identify opportunities for improvement.


Qualities We Seek

  • Obsessive about details
    Nothing escapes your eye, no matter how small.

  • Insatiably curious
    You keep asking why, even if you got an answer.

  • Team-oriented
    You seek help when needed, are open to constructive feedback, and have never uttered the words “Well, that isn’t my job” in a sentence.

  • Humble
    You recognize that arrogance is toxic and that modesty is key to being a good teammate.

  • Excellent communicator
    You have strong verbal and written communication skills that enable you to work constructively with our partners.

  • Adaptable
    You enjoy dynamic and fast-growing work environments. You believe no job is too small, and no idea too big.

  • Ag-Savvy
    You are familiar with ag data and agribusiness systems.


What we expect of you

You do what you say you will do.

  • Become the product owner for all of our integrations.

  • Work with our partners and customers to define integration requirements, resolve all integration challenges, and ensure that data is mapped and loaded correctly to our platform.

  • Dive into technical details with internal and external engineering teams and drive technical solutions.

  • Write detailed requirements for the engineering team.

  • Read API documentation and identify new opportunities to expand and improve our integrations.

  • Implement data governance procedures meeting internal requirements as well as requirements of partners and collaborators.

  • Design analytical systems to verify and validate data quality and identify issues or inaccuracies in internal or external data.


What you can expect of us

We do what we say we will do.

  • People first
    We will seek to maximize your personal growth and long-term career success during your time with AgVend and beyond. We value our employees’ lives and aspirations outside of the company.

  • Ownership and autonomy
    You will have the power to realize opportunities, drive change, and delight customers.

  • Clear expectations
    Performance goals are set quarterly and are rooted in our company values and objectives.

  • Competitive salary
    We know money isn’t everything, but you will be properly compensated for your work.

  • Company ownership
    You are fundamental to the success of AgVend and thus you will receive stock options in the company.

  • Travel
    We strongly believe that there is no replacement for a firm handshake, so you will be expected to meet with our partners on a regular basis. We will compensate for all travel expenses.

  • Health insurance
    We want you and your family happy and healthy, so we have industry-leading health coverage for all of our employees.
