Vacancy

Technical lead, CTO in waiting

Grounddata has strong sales and commercial skills.  We have backing from the European Space Agency incubator at Harwell near Oxford, with the prospect of benefiting from other grants and support mechanisms.  We have encouraging traction – with the first sale agreed.  We have a steady flow of enquiries from a number of markets, so the long term outlook is excellent. The initial market is in a high value sector of agriculture with clear commercial drivers and identified channels to market.  Satellite ‘ground truthing’ and other markets will follow on.  We have established relations with one of the leading agricultural universities and another with specialist engineering skills.  From a technical perspective you could view this as Internet of Things, Cloud Computing and eventually Big Data.  The core skill needed is practical hands on experience of device programming and integrating off the shelf components.  The ideal skill set is as follows, but those with only partial coverage will be considered: Cellular communications & wireless protocols (e.g. Bluetooth 5 or similar) Device programming AWS or other cloud platforms Supplier selection and management Ideally custom board development and specifying physical enclosures for external use A knowledge of image processing would also be a plus The proof of concept was successfully completed in 2017, under the supervision of the technical manager of a large agricultural company.  We have a clear and documented statement of the market requirement. The immediate task is getting a production-ready system designed and used in the field. If you are interested or know of someone who might be please use this anti-spam email link.  Thanks.
