Software developer (back-end)

Job description

Do you like programming and do you want your software to have a positive impact on the lives of millions of animals? Do you want to work in an innovative and entrepreneurial environment with a fun and enthusiastic team? Apply for the role of software developer!


Who we are

Eve was envisioned when we discovered that chickens literally and figuratively hatch in a black box. Now, with our sensor platform, we measure as many variables as possible in hatcheries that are critical to animal welfare and the hatching success of chickens. The Eve team combines knowledge of software, hardware, sensors, IoT, poultry and big data to provide insights that will lead to improvements in the hatching process. We are now transitioning from development to the roll-out of Eve, which will have a positive impact on millions of animals.

We have a young and ambitious team that likes to work on interesting technology and do fun things.
We collaborate to make our company and solutions successful. This creates both challenges and victories that we obviously celebrate. In short: a fun and informal atmosphere!



What you will do
We are looking for a software developer to support our growth. As In Ovo´s software developer you are responsible for gathering and processing data from the devices we place at hatcheries. Simply put, this means that you will ensure that our IoT devices can be connected to our system in no time and the data generated will be unlocked through an Application Programming Interface (API). You support our partners and clients by visualizing the data of their processes in an user interface.  You will join an ambitious, multidisciplinary team existing of developers, engineers and poultry experts. We design the product together, from sensors to the interaction with the end user, and your input is very important. Next to achieving our goals you also engage with product development. Together with the team you work for the development and innovation of several products.


Who are you?

You are enthusiastic, eager to learn and have an open attitude. It is important that you have a proper insight of your strengths, but also of the areas in which you can improve. This way, we make sure that your responsibilities are optimally aligned. With your experience you are quickly able to work independently within your domain, and with your people skills you are able to collaborate and communicate with other members of the team. Defining, prioritizing and controlling tasks always happens in cooperation with the team.
