How much energy will my solar power plant generate this week? Is this flight path safe and efficient? Will there be enough rain to water my crops? As the weather affects many industries' performance, businesses keep a close eye on what's happening in the skies.

At Meteomatics, we're a team of proud nerds who deliver the most accurate weather data to over 400 companies and research institutions worldwide, helping them accelerate the energy transition, reduce the business’ impact on the environment, and make products and services safer for society.

Be ready to unlock your creativity and programming skills, as you'll build bespoke solutions for top international clients and contribute to solving important societal and environmental problems.

What you'll do

  • Manage storage, processing, and distribution of petabytes of data (e.g., radar and satellite imagery, station observations, and model forecasts)

  • Develop and optimize high-performance algorithms for forecasting and processing weather data to serve millions of API queries per day

  • Develop data visualizations

  • Develop industry-specific solutions (e.g., solar and wind power forecasts)

  • You ideally have solid knowledge of Linux

  • You’re fluent in English. German (or Swiss German 😉) is a plus

What you'll get

  • International environment: we come from all over the globe and have very different backgrounds

  • Hybrid work: we love meeting our colleagues at the office, but we also know how good it is to work from home when we feel more introspective. You can choose!

  • Fun: our HR team is keen on organizing social activities. Join us for barbecues at the terrace, ski day on the Swiss mountains, summer off-site events, after-work games...

  • 5 vacation weeks: we work better when we're well-rested!
