and prescriptive analytics designed to select the best possible crop system for
every acre.

To make this possible, Monsanto collects terabytes
of data across all aspects of its operations, from genome sequencing, crop
field trials, manufacturing, supply chain, and everything in between. There is
an enormous need and potential here to do something that has never been done

datasets into innovative software that is deployed across the pipeline,
accelerating the pace and quality of all crop system development decisions to
unbelievable levels.

Why you should join us:

• Work with other top level talent solving a wide range of complex and unique challenges that have real world impact

• We value the exploration of all relevant technology stacks in order to find the best fit for each dataset
