Job Description

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 a Software Developer Co-op, 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.

At Monsanto, we expect our Data Asset Engineers to:

* Demonstrate passion and ownership by embracing all aspects of software development: analysis, development, testing and deployment.
* Be curious and proactive. Learn something new every day.
* Be ego-less! Ask for help, be willing to admit what you don't know and willing to receive and give constructive feedback.
* Collaborate closely with team members and business community.
* Think through hard problems and work with a team to solve them.
* Take pride in software craftsmanship, diving deep into code and constantly innovating.

Why you should join us:

* Open workspace promotes inclusive collaboration and pairing in a fun, casual environment.
* Innovation days, hack-a-thons, networking events, and volunteer opportunities.
* Questioning how things are done is not just encouraged, it is expected.
* Work with other top level talent solving a wide range of complex and unique problems that have real world impact.
* Ongoing focus on growth through training (domain and technical) and knowledge sharing through communities of agile teams.
* Diverse technology stacks in a forward thinking, OSS-centric environment.
* We value autonomous, self-organizing teams allowing you to have a real say in what you work on, who you work with, and how you work.
* Our environment values your talent over a role or title. Strength of ideas trumps position on an org chart.

Required Skills:

* Candidates must be currently enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's degree program, with a standing of Sophomore or above, in any of the following: Computer Science, Computer Engineering, MIS, or related field.
* Experience or education in the software development lifecycle.
* Experience or education working with any Object Oriented language (ex. Java, C#, Scala, Ruby)
* Possess strong organizational, problem solving, and excellent written and oral communication skills.
* Ability to rapidly learn new technologies and problem domains, and become conversant in the technology/domain with business users.
* Detail oriented, able to multitask and meet deadlines.
* Work as an effective team member.
