We’re seeking an experienced Full Stack Developer to help create, improve and develop cutting-edge solutions for the Illumitex FarmVisionAI platform, the leader in Digital Horticulture.

Your responsibilities will include working on our Digital team to build new solutions and improve existing ones. Illumitex’s FarmVisionAI application utilizes a local (grow site) Edge Server and the AWS Cloud to bring advanced visualization and machine learning to our customers.

The ideal candidate will have experience with edge processing, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and the AWS Serverless architecture. You will work with Python, JavaScript, AWS Lambda, and machine learning algorithms.

We are looking for individuals that bring creativity and flexibility to their development and are just as comfortable building quick and easy solutions as they are tackling tough problems and creating well designed and elegant applications.

Illumitex is continually investing in new digital experiences and expanding our offerings within the world of horticulture lighting and digital technology. This is an opportunity to lay the technical foundation for long-term company success while rapidly launching new features.

Ideal candidate will be in the Austin, Texas area.

• Work directly with our Digital, Sales and Marketing teams on implementing new features
• Support new feature development and customer updates
• Develop cutting edge machine learning and back-end functionality for our FarmVisionAI technology.
• Develop application requirements, architecture, and design documentation
• Help support and maintain the Illumitex applications.
• Participate in the design and development process
• Establish engineering processes and define company engineering standards
• Identify, research and implement new technologies and remove technical hurdles
• Build solutions that are highly scalable and optimized for performance.
At this point, on the “specialist” vs “generalist” front, you tend to lean a bit generalist. You have the flexibility to move around the stack, from the front-end user interface to back-end processing, data management, and security.
Preferred Qualifications:
• Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
• Strong written and verbal communication skills
• Ability to work efficiently and independently under deadlines and meet weekly commitments
• Experience working under agile development methodologies preferred
• Eagerness to learn about new technologies and implement those ideas into a production environment
• Detailed understanding of and experience building web interfaces and applications using modern JavaScript frameworks, web standards, and open source software
• Ability to quickly become familiar with emerging technologies and practices
• Detailed understanding of and experience with continuous delivery, continuous integration testing, and cloud platforms
• Good understanding of techniques/practices such as responsive web design, progressive enhancement, accessibility and other web standards, architectures, and modern deployment practices
• Experience with performance tuning and security is a plus
