About Gro:
Gro Intelligence is tackling two of the biggest problems facing the world today: food security and climate change. We understand and quantify the complex interplay between food, weather, trade, agriculture, and macroeconomic conditions in a world upended by climate change, a growing population, and more. The team at Gro has built a platform that allows businesses, non-profits, and governments to better plan for and adapt to these changes. With offices in both Nairobi and New York, Gro has the financial backing of prominent investors such as TPG Growth, Intel Capital, Data Collective, and GGV. Gro is a diverse, intellectually curious team of technologists, scientists, and business professionals united by a shared commitment to build AI that addresses agriculture, food, and our climate on the most fundamental level. What You'll Do:

Develop original computational models to predict agricultural and environmental performance and conditions using geospatial, weather, crop, trade, and pricing data.

Develop systems and techniques for very large scale computations

Work with scientists, analysts and engineers to integrate local and sector specific factors and work closely with specialists to further internal product development and external collaborations

Do original research using a wide range of statistical tools, machine learning models and algorithms

Develop simple visualization tools to deliver model results or solutions in a user friendly way

What We're Looking For:
3+ years related experience

Graduate degree in Engineering, Computer Science, Math, Statistics, Physics or a related field

Strong computer science fundamental (data structures and algorithms)

Strong understanding of statistics, mathematics

Fluency in Python and R

Familiarity with git

Ability to work collaboratively with team members across functional roles and strong communication skills.

Ability to deliver high quality results given time constraints, prioritize across multiple tasks

Experience with "big data" computation (parallel processing, distributed storage) is a plus

Gro was founded in 2014 and currently has offices in Nairobi and New York City. The company was built on diversity and the knowledge that artificial intelligence is only as good as the human intelligence behind it. Gro's team represents the world it is modeling. At the company, we speak more than 27 languages and we comprise a wide range of experts, from agronomists and crop scientists, to mathematicians, engineers, data scientists, market research analysts, designers, historians, and philosophers. Our culture fosters collaboration between people of extremely different backgrounds that allows us to accomplish things that would otherwise seem impossible.
