Kick-Ass Senior Web Developer at Solum, Inc

San Francisco,CA,United StatesAug 08, 2013

About Solum:

Solum is creating new technology to make the business of agriculture simpler and more productive. We develop software, analysis services, and new soil measurements to help growers and their advisors manage farms efficiently, improve crop yields, and optimize use of inputs. Solum is bringing the best of Silicon Valley cloud, mobile and big data analytics technology to agriculture, one of the world's largest and most important industries.

Solum is a venture-backed start-up headquartered in the SOMA district of San Francisco. The company also has a significant presence in Ames, Iowa, where it operates a state-of-the-art soil testing laboratory. The company is backed by Khosla Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures. Our team of 25 people are experts from a broad set of disciplines -- software development, data science, chemistry, physics, agronomy, and business.

Since the introduction of precision farming technology and techniques over 15 years ago, advanced growers and their advisors have generated significant volumes of geospatial data about their soils, crops and yields. However, the current industry desktop software packages make it difficult to manage this data and turn it into actionable information. Solum is developing a cloud and mobile-first software platform that will greatly simplify the transport, storage, analysis, and sharing of precision agriculture data. Solum's intuitive interface gives crop advisors and growers access to the information they need to make critical agronomy and farm management decisions in the field.
