Monsanto Software Developer-Entry in ST. LOUIS, Missouri

Monsanto’s mission is centered on finding agricultural solutions for a sustainable future. Twenty years from now, the earth’s population will need 55% more food than it can produce now. Today, Monsanto is working with farmers around the world to do something about it. As such, we approach agriculture holistically, looking across a broad range of solutions from biotechnology, breeding to advanced predictive and prescriptive analytics.

To make this possible, we build great, innovative software that accelerates the complete Monsanto portfolio, from the lab to the field to the customer. Example solutions include real-time streaming data from connected devices, mobile data collection and visualization suites, big data genomics repositories, and geospatial computing systems, just to name a few. To build great software, we need great people.

As an entry Software Developer, you will join a comprehensive on-boarding and mentorship program to help build technical and professional skills. The program is an exciting opportunity that will help accelerate your career at Monsanto by providing specialized training, mentoring, coaching and feedback. You will be exposed to agile software development, working with other entry software developers to solve complex problems using the latest tools and technologies. You will work directly with your mentor on a daily basis and have access to our community of expert software developers with a broad range of skills and experience.
