Python Full Stack Developer

Biddeford, Maine - SOFTware Engineering - Full-Time


Farmhand Automation is looking to radically change the way we grow food in America by empowering small scale farms with cutting edge robotics automation. Our team has built the world's first autonomous micro-tractor for automating planting, weeding and soil management at the local scale to accelerate the local food movement, and we’re looking to build out our team!


At Farmhand Automation, we believe in making robots accessible to everyone. We have designed and built our own python stack for robotics and are looking for our first dedicated developer to work with our team to grow the platform. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a startup at the ground floor with a dedicated team looking to make the world a better place. We are most excited about a team member who is energized about diving into robotics and has strong development skills with production level code for Python and Web. Prior robotics experience is not required, hardware/IoT a great plus.
