About Yara

Yara has an ambitious strategic agenda to be the crop nutrition company for the future and is taking lead in the development of sustainable agriculture and digital tools, to contribute to solving the challenges which the agricultural industry is facing globally.

About the team

We at Yara are part of a global network, collaborating to profitably and responsibly solve some of the world's key challenges - resource scarcity, food insecurity, and environmental change. And while the main focus of the unit is to deliver software solutions to farmers and partners all around the globe, this team focus is on to enable and empower the software engineering teams across the unit to allow them to scale without frictions with the infrastructure and the services configurations that they need to keep their services up and running.

And while there are many PaaS out there, we as a corporation have to be agnostic to outside vendors as well as compliant with our internal and strict ethics, security, and business continuity policies, so we chose to build our multi-cloud platform on top of Kubernetes, which allows us to grow our automation and self-service offerings building everything from Developer Portal to custom Kubernetes Resources when needed to provide, secure, monitor and customize external cloud resources, such as databases, storage, topics/queues and much more.

  • AWS (Azure and others to come)
