bringing Go people to Go jobs

Posted
Creve Coeur, MO, USA - potentially remote

MonsantoCo has immediate openings for Data Engineers:

This will be for contractor positions, but conversion to full-time is possible. We are open to remote and our office is in Creve Coeur, Missouri.

Full disclosure this is a place holder requisition that is leveraged by several Asset Teams from our organization, so the posting will be a bit more general so don’t worry if you check all the boxes.

Some background about the opportunities available. The asset teams have specific focuses on different domains.

For example one team may be focused on financial data, while another works primarily with geospatial data. The team that I am a part of works with our product pipeline (all the things go into creating a commercial seed product: such as Dekalb Corn). This actually spans an interesting set of subdomains such as genomics, crop performance, plant phenotypes and plant ancestry.

A little bit about our tooling and us:

We do what we can to pick the right technology for the problem. We write Go primarily and leverage a lot of GCPs offerings such as Big Query, Dataflow, Spanner, Datastore and KubeEngine. We also have some products that use Neo4j, such as our plant ancestry product: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KEvLURBenM. We don’t do any front end work currently. Our customers are typically internal application teams (mix of mobile and webapps) or data scientists, so most of what we create are microservices either REST or gRPC. These APIs are usually backed by a robust streaming infrastructure, we use Kafka and Pubsub.

Our teams culture is closer to a startup culture than what you would typically think of as corporate work culture. We are flexible with hours, respect one another’s opinions and ideas, get work done and have fun doing it. We also love good coffee, if you happen to be at our main campus we brew Valhalla Java for all of our coffee consumption : )
