Blockchain Developer

Full-time Palo Alto, California BovControl

BovControl is looking for a Blockchain Engineer with knowledge in data science, passionate about changing the world through coding and help us build our own blockchain – considering our previous experiences and validations (unlocking the food value-chain).

We’re innovators and changemakers in connecting the farming world to cutting-edge technology. In other words, we help the everyday farmer better manage their herds right from their fingertips.


Our solution combines data collection and data analysis. The data is collected using the BovControl app, and the data can be analyzed through a dashboard control panel that can be accessed from any computer or device with Internet.

We are seeking to engage every cattle rancher on the planet and enhance efficiency and productivity, despite not owning a single farm (except for the experimental farm where our ideas are put to test!).

Combating global hunger through this method greatly motivates our team.

We are actively seeking capable, driven and self-motivated developers that want to improve life in the world by coding. Believe me, that is possible! Now it’s your chance to code for a better world. BovControl is located in what many regard is the world’s foremost startup ecosystem, The Pad Sunnyvale (Silicon Valley), CIC Boston and Berrini Avenue in Sao Paulo.

Feeding 1 billion people per day through our users, before completing our 10 years old, is our main goal.
