Interested in IoT-programming real cultural landscapes with Nofence?

 

Position: Senior System Developer (full stack)
Deadline: December 14, 2018

Nofence develops virtual fences for grazing animals. After years of product development and testing, we launched in the Norwegian market this summer and we have international ambitions. As well as delivering grazing solutions for goats, the company now ventures into the realms of sheep and cattle.

Why are we here?

We believe that grazing animals enjoy life more if they are kept outdoors where they have the opportunity to find their own food. We know that the need for fences is the reason why so few animals are allowed to just that. As a result, many grazing animals are kept indoors, even if it is an established fact that it would be better if they were let out onto pastures. The technology that we are developing, makes fences redundant. The solution is ridiculously obvious.

What will you do?

At Nofence, your coding abilities will be used to make great changes for grazing animals. This position is completely different from most other system developer jobs. Here, you will have the chance to develop the kind of technology that harmonizes with the planet’s ecosystems.

Who are we looking for?

We are primarily looking for a person who would like to help build a development environment in an ambitious startup. You will be a key asset to us in the international race towards developing animal-friendly virtual fences. So far, our company is ahead of the competition, and the product’s potential is great. For us to be able to maintain our position, we need to be able to create value from the stream of data that is generated with our technology.

You must have experience with multiple programming languages. We use a state-of-the-art development platform, where continuous integration and automatic testing of program code are integrated parts of the work process.

In addition, it’s an advantage if you have knowledge of one or more of the following:

  • Debian Linux / AWS
  • Node.js / React
  • MongoDB
  • Android / Java
  • iOS / Swift
  • Python
  • Embedded C
  • Experience from big data analysis

Our values and beliefs

We believe that cross-disciplinary synergies are smart – hence we would like to see that the ties between system development, design, mechanics, hardware and embedded development are strong. And not to mention the customer’s voice through our people at customer support. We also believe that the person we are going to hire is motivated to go all in for the company. We would, therefore, like to offer the opportunity to enter into ownership of the company with us.

Workplace

The place of work will be at Batnfjordsøra in Norway. Mountains and fjords are at our doorstep, and the great ocean is just around the bend.

Since Nofence is based in Norway, you can expect benefits aligned with Norwegian standards, such as:

The area is very family friendly, with kindergartens and elementary schools next door. The cities Kristiansund and Molde are just a 30-minute drive away, and the public transport system is well connected.

Deadline 14th december 2018.
