About Monarch: 

At Monarch, we’re leading the digital transformation of farming.   

Monarch believes in putting farmers first. Our smart electric tractor enhances existing farm ecosystems. Monarch helps farmers by addressing labor availability, meeting consumer demands for sustainability, and providing actionable data-driven farming insights. Monarch enables economically competitive organic and beyond farming through intelligent electro-mechanical solutions that replace harmful chemicals. While driven by bleeding-edge technology, the Monarch Tractor still plows, tills, and hauls better than any other tractor in its class. 

The Monarch Tractor will both spur and enable future generations of farming technologies. We have the technology and the team to develop, build, and scale the Monarch to digitally transform farming around the world.

About the role:

We are looking for an Agricultural System Engineer to work on tractor and tractor/implement system design, integration, hands-on debug, and in-field testing.

In this role, you will:

  • Participate in product requirement definitions, design reviews, and systems integrations.
  • Support electrical design, component selection, and electronics supplier technical interactions.
  • Define electrical schematics and communication protocols for tractor/implement interfaces.
  • Work closely with implement partners to achieve desired system-level functionality.
  • Work with cross-functional teams to build and fine tune interfaces and functionality.
  • Troubleshoot tractor and tractor/implement sensor, actuator, and communication issues.
  • Improve electrical and control system stability, availability, robustness, and performance.
  • Test and debug at the component, subsystem, tractor, tractor/implement, and fleet levels
  • Occasionally work at customer sites to enhance end-to-end product experience.

Come join a world class multi-disciplinary engineering team in our quest to digitize the farming experience by making the tractor smart, connected, and simple.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of ISOBUS (ISO 11783) protocols and tractor/implement interactions
  • Understanding of telematics, diagnostics, and calibration protocols (e.g. XCP)
  • Exposure to ROS and Ethernet communication protocols
  • Prior Model Based Development work in Matlab/Simulink or similar tools
  • Understanding of and experience with fundamentals of controls thinking (PID, filters, etc.)
  • Ability to diagnose, analyze, and resolve issues hands-on with oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, etc.
  • Familiarity with vehicle and/or tractor dynamics and integration
  • Understanding of hydraulic system control
  • Test-driven mindset (MIL, SIL, HIL, bench test, field test, etc.)
  • Precision agriculture, construction, and/or robotics/mechatronics experience
  • Formula SAE Electric, Solar Car, ASABE ¼ Scale Tractor, or similar collegiate competitions
  • Agile, small team, collaborative mindset
