We are looking for a super-talented and passionate Unity Developer who wants to take ownership and be part from the early stages of a well funded and innovative FoodTech company with potential to disrupt the industry and make an impact on people's lives. This is a full-time role starting asap.

Did you know the three main reasons people don't grow their own food are lack of time, knowledge and space available? At Gartenzwerg Technologies, we are on a mission to enable anyone to grow their own food from home effortlessly on the push of a button. We develop fully automated personal indoor gardens with which anyone can grow small fruit, vegetables and herbs year-round conveniently. As an IoT product, the garden mimics and controls the perfect growing environment for plants and communicates with users over an app to let them know if the plants need anything.

You will be responsible to create an amazing user experience by building and designing the UI/UX which simulates a digital version of the real garden, as well as to integrate the app with AWS IoT services.

We have just closed our crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs 234% overfunded (http://gartenzwerg.me/seedrs) and have been selected for the IoT Tribe programme which is backed by the European Commission and focuses on helping IoT start-ups to bring products to market. This is an exciting time to join the company as we prepare for our product launch!

A great team is essential for us. You’ll be working closely with not only the founders and our Embedded System Engineers to build a great solution but also with the whole team to present your ideas, discuss next steps and make sure your work is aligned with the broader picture. We encourage an open environment where thoughts, ideas and feedback are always welcome.

It’s not so important that you know it all (we don’t), but that you are willing to learn, have the curiosity and hands-on attitude to get things done. Although we are pretty hands-on, we don’t take ourselves too serious. We enjoy and love what we do!

The most important is that you share our vision to make an impact on people's lives and see the power that personal indoor farms can have in the future.
