Position: Full Stack Front-End Developer
AgTools Company Background
Agtools provides First Mile MARKET data across the globe of over 500 commodities in real time for farmers, buyers, and others on the food supply chain to execute better planting, harvesting, forecasting improving financial outcomes, lower risks, and lower CO2 impact. With over 76 variables impacting supply chain across the globe, Agtools provides data and algorithms at billion transactions per second, allowing buyers and farmers to understand future impacts to contracts and CO2/SO2.
Every day we lose over 4900 truckloads of food from farms to distribution centers in the USA, 69000 worldwide and growing!

Each link has limited market intelligence visibility from farms to distribution centers locally and across the world. The disconnection leads to production & consumption mismatches, food waste, & unnecessary financial, human expenditure, and CO2 impact.
