Software Engineer – 6 months FTC

Contract: 6-month fixed term contract

Salary: £40,000 – £50,000 per annum



Widely reported declines in wild bee species worldwide are placing pollination services under threat. This decline is a particular challenge to agriculture and horticulture, where pollination is key to producing many major crops such as soft fruits, top fruits and nuts. These challenges require innovative and diverse solutions to supplement pollination services. Flies, especially hoverflies, have proven potential as crop pollinators and yet are underutilised in agricultural practice. Olombria works with flies as crop pollinators using precision agriculture and combining technological and ecological systems.

We love candidates who have a passion for developing innovative solutions and have an entrepreneurial spirit. You will use your technical expertise to work with an interdisciplinary team of designers, scientists, and researchers to build the next generation of agricultural IoT solutions.
