Software Engineering Manager

We at Yara are part of a global network, collaborating to profitably and responsibly solve some of the world's key challenges - resource scarcity, food insecurity and environmental change.

About the Unit

For over a century, Yara has worked to feed the world and protect the planet, and our mission is to do so in a responsible and sustainable way. Yara Farming Solutions will lead the transformation towards more sustainable and efficient food production through innovative approaches in digital farming and agricultural transparency that lead to the overall reduction of the carbon footprint of crop nutrition. 

Over the past decade, the agriculture industry has witnessed a dramatic surge in investment towards the digitization of farming by large incumbents, tech multinationals and innovative start-ups across the world. This development has caused the proliferation of data-based services aimed at improving farmers productivity and agricultural efficiency at large. However, to this date no company has achieved the sufficient depth and breadth of information required to offer transformative, field-specific services, and many challenges prohibit farm and field data sharing at scale.

Overcoming these challenges requires a truly collaborative, industry-wide approach for data management. In this context, Yara have issued a “call for action” to bring together institutions from across the world and jointly build an Open Farm and Field Data Exchange (from now on: “ODX” or “Platform”), modelled along the lines of similar data sharing schemes that have emerged in other industries recently.
