In our Job of the Week column today, we’re showcasing an opening for software developers (Computer Vision) with one of the regions hottest startups, Resson.

Fredericton-based Resson launched four years ago to create software that would assess data from a range of sources on a farm. They developed a system called RAMAS, which collects data from such sources as tractors, sensors buried in the field, and aerial drones flying over the field. It brings all the information together and presents the farmer with a report on what is happening in his field and what actions need to be taken.

The company sprang to prominence last summer when it announced a $14 million round of funding, led by the VC arm of Monsanto, the St. Louis-based agrichemical and agritech giant.

The Job of the Week column features openings posted on the Entrevestor Job Board, which focuses on jobs in technology, innovation and startups in Atlantic Canada. The Entrevestor Job Board helps match job openings and candidates in the tech and start-up communities and is operated by Entrevestor and Alongside (formerly Qimple).
