React Native Developer for Smart Gardening System

Location: Ukraine: Kharkiv

About the Client

Ever wondered who those creative people who build the future are? Our customer is one of them! Located in Chicago, this company creates and distributes elegant and easy-to-handle smart-home hydroponic gardening systems, transforming the whole process of growing food. Now, with their help, it’s super easy and fast, highly productive, engaging, and fun. Most of all, the produce you get is tasty and nutrient-enriched! Though, let’s exclude the flowers from this list.

Such a system adapts commercial-grade hydroponic technology for consumer use, making professional hydroponics shrunk to fit in any home. Gardening techniques have never been that easy for everyone! Also, caring about our planet, the customer provides 100% recyclable packaging for each of their products. Currently, these particular gardening systems are considered the most advanced consumer products in the modern market.

About the Project

Want to work on a small and agile team that is moving quickly to develop a modern platform that touches a wide variety of technologies and capabilities? This is not really a project, but instead an ongoing endeavor to keep advancing a smart hydroponic platform that allows users to manage commercial grade growing equipment in their home as though it is a simple appliance. Rise Gardens is a startup, but currently live with their gardens and application (launched in September 2019). So they are still in the early days of building out a mobile application that integrates with an AWS serverless backend and IoT infrastructure. They have, and will continue to develop a relatively sophisticated DevOps foundation as well. The Rise Gardens technology roadmap is deep and includes building out a proprietary community platform for social engagement; processing and handling media such as photos and video; in-application predictive analytics to provide an enhanced user experience; and lots more.

About the Team

Small, but very proud! The current team consists of a Native developer and Python developer on our side and the PO on the customer’s side, with plans to expand very soon. If you ever dreamed of working on an innovative and genuinely impactful project, this job is just for you! Rise Garden developers are not requirements translators, but have significant input and freedom into the technology direction of the company. Rise craves to extend their team with a professional who is passionate about coding and would care about the success of the company, in particular.
