About Gro:

Gro Intelligence is tackling two of the biggest problems facing the world today: food security and climate change. We understand and quantify the complex interplay between food, weather, trade, agriculture, and macroeconomic conditions in a world upended by climate change, a growing population, and more. The team at Gro has built a platform that allows businesses, non-profits, and governments to better plan for and adapt to these changes. With offices in both Nairobi and New York, Gro has the financial backing of prominent investors such as TPG Growth, Intel Capital, Data Collective, and GGV. Gro is a diverse, intellectually curious team of technologists, scientists, and business professionals united by a shared commitment to build AI that addresses agriculture, food, and our climate on the most fundamental level.

What You'll Do:

  • Design DevOps solutions for large and medium scale projects. This includes selection and review of technology frameworks/architecture to be used on projects. Create architecture documents and diagrams.

  • Design and implement CI/CD pipelines that are highly available, scalable, and self-healing on a cloud platform.

  • Define and deploy monitoring, metrics, and logging systems.

  • Design and document efficient DevOps operational practices. 

  • Identify shortcomings in existing DevOps environments or designs and implement improvements.

  • Automate workloads in cloud and cloud native approaches.

  • Design and implement tools to automate operational processes. 

What We're Looking For:

  • At least 3 years of relevant experience using and managing DevOps tooling, monitoring, infrastructure-as-code and automation tools.

  • Experience using cloud solutions such AWS, GCP or Azure.

  • Strong scripting and software development experience, including Bash, Python, PowerShell, TypeScript and JavaScript. 

  • Experience working with containers and associated technologies including Docker and Kubernetes.

  • Linux System Administration.

  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills.

  • The ability and skill to train other people in procedural and technical topics.


Gro was founded in 2014 and currently has offices in Nairobi and New York City. The company was built on diversity and the knowledge that artificial intelligence is only as good as the human intelligence behind it. Gro’s team represents the world it is modeling. At the company, we speak more than 27 languages and we comprise a wide range of experts, from agronomists and crop scientists, to mathematicians, engineers, data scientists, market research analysts, designers, historians, and philosophers. Our culture fosters collaboration between people of extremely different backgrounds that allows us to accomplish things that would otherwise seem impossible.
