Senior Backend Engineer, groundbreaking development for sustainable fish farming

BioSort AS
Senior Backend Engineer

We are developing our product, iFarm, a system that utilizes computer vision, deep learning, and biometrics to create individualized health records for farmed fish. The result is increased fish welfare and sustainability, while lowering production cost for fish farmers. 

Our prototypes are tested in real-world environments with over 150 000 fish per cage, and multiple cages per season. Our goal is to create a solution that seamlessly handles all stages from machine vision to sorting fish, generating health records, and timely reporting of events for easy decision making. For that we utilize a modern technology stack (Docker, Kubernetes, Keycloak, Kafka, Yocto, Prometheus, etc.) to power our hardware and cloud infrastructure. We are focused on developing high quality software and apply code reviews, unit testing, automatic integration in CI pipelines, and using staging environments. We follow scrum in product development with bi-weekly sprints.
