Senior Software Engineer - AI / CV
Aigen
Kirkland, WA
At Aigen, our mission is to accelerate the transition to regenerative agriculture—with a pesticide-free, solar powered robotics platform.

Do you have a track record of solving complex engineering challenges and delivering incredible products? Join us to make a real world impact at the confluence of cutting edge technology, agriculture, AI, and climate. 52% of agricultural land is degraded by current management practices, and 60-75% of original soil carbon has been lost in lands used for agriculture (according to the IPCC).

With $7M raised to date, we are backed by a suite of investors including NEAGFCAgFunder, and Bessemer Ventures

The Role: As a Senior Software Engineer - AI / CV, you will be a champion for the design, development and integration of the machine learning and computer vision components of the Aigen software stack. You will collaborate with the other engineering teams to build a scalable robotics platform and develop the critical algorithms that enable autonomy. The ideal candidate will be a quick learner with the ability to understand complex software problems.

Aigen celebrates diversity in all its forms, and is an equal opportunity employer
