BovControl is looking for a Data Scientist, passionate about changing the world through data and help us build our own Business Intelligence - considering our previous experiences and validations (unlocking the food value-chain).

We are innovators and change-makers in connecting the farming world to cutting-edge technology. In other words, we help the livestock value chain better manage their data right from their fingertips and dashboards.

Our solution combines data collection and data analysis. The data is collected using mobile apps, and the data can be analysed 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, corporations that are working in this sector, 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 data scientist that want to improve life in the world by data crunch. Believe me, that is possible! Now it's your chance to crunch data for a better world.

BovControl is located in what many regard is the world's foremost startup ecosystem, Silicon Valley, Fresno and Berrini Avenue in Sao Paulo (Brazil).

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