About Monil

Monil is a Norwegian startup founded in 2022 by an experienced group of people from Prox Dynamics/Teledyne FLIR, Energy Micro/Silicon Labs and Cognite. We aim to design and deliver world-leading livestock tracking, virtual fencing and grazing technology. By combining cutting edge technology with natural animal behaviour, our products will help increase profitability in livestock farming, enhance animal welfare and positively impact the environment.

The essence of our product is a beautifully engineered collar worn by grazing animals that records the animal's position and uses physical cues to contain the animal inside a virtual fence. Through a neatly designed smartphone app, the farmer can set up and adjust the virtual fence and monitor the activity and health of the animals.

The software team

We develop a suite of small services with gRPC APIs, primarily developed in Go but we're open for mixing languages where it makes sense. PostgreSQL is our most commonly used database, other databases are used where beneficial. We use Bazel as our build tool. All services run on Kubernetes, where we have invested in observability through metrics and tracing. We're using EKS on AWS to run our cluster and surrounding services. CI/CD is handled through private GitLab runners and ArgoCD.
