Solum is currently hiring world-class software engineers to develop
back-end and front-end systems to revolutionize agriculture. We build
advanced soil nutrient measurement systems that enable farmers and growers
to get accurate, high-density information on their soils. Farmers can use
this information to apply crop inputs (such as fertilizer) more
efficiently, which can save them a substantial amount of money, increase
their crop yields, and greatly reduce their environmental impact.
We are looking for talented and passionate software engineers to design and
build our data management systems, develop advanced analysis tools to
leverage this data for agricultural management, and create web-based
front-ends for data analysis and visualization. Solum's soil nutrient
measurement technology is the first of its kind to enable high-density,
high-accuracy measurements scalable to millions and millions of acres,
creating a rich set of information to enable quantitative,
information-driven management of farm operations. We are an early stage
company, looking to hire experienced, self-directed developers to design
and build our software platform.

About Solum

Solum is a Khosla Ventures backed company, based in Mountain View,
California, that is developing a scalable measurement platform that will

environmental impact of farming by reducing fertilizer runoff.
