About Seso

American agriculture has been facing a labor crisis for decades. Seso is addressing this problem by building the first end-to-end recruiting and workforce management platform for the industry

Seso’s mission is to provide agricultural workers with meaningful, safe employment opportunities; provide security for the most critical aspects of America’s food production system; and reduce admin costs to employers through software. We are addressing American farmers’ biggest pain point - access to qualified labor - through a software-enabled labor solution that automates the H-2A visa. Our comprehensive HR platform not only streamlines and automates the H-2A program, but helps agribusiness seamlessly integrate their efforts across recruitment, onboarding, payroll, and insurance while providing workers access to financial services for the first time!

Seso has raised over $50M from Tier I investors including Index, Founders Fund, NfX and BOND, and has been recognized with awards like Forbes Rising Stars and Andreesen Horowitzs’, American Dynamism 50.

About the Role

At Seso, we are passionate about building.

We focus heavily on Node.js (TypeScript), React, PostgreSQL, and Redis. Our codebase is a joy to build in - deployments (and rollbacks) are a breeze. We are obsessed with typing, tests, and iterative releases. Feature flags are a way of life. We deploy to production multiple times per day and we are only getting faster.

If these words resonate with you, you're in the right place.

🏦 Seso Payroll Platform 🏦

Our platform is aggressively scaling to support hundreds of thousands of farmworkers and these users need financial tools and products now more than ever. Payroll services, taxes, and remittances - it's wide open - and we are rapidly expanding these offerings on our platform.

🏗 Notifications & Backend Infrastructure 🏗

Our offerings rely on a robust back-end infrastructure - our integration stack is huge and we ruthlessly strategize to ensure feature delivery remains lightning fast. We flex our engineering muscles to ensure our practices are the best for the job.
