San Francisco, California
Sofar is powered by the dream to build the world’s best ocean data platform. Our team’s unique combination of ocean science, technology, and innovation drives us to develop new solutions for ocean exploration and observation. We are a bunch of ocean nerds and keep our offices close to the water (literally). We’re a scrappy startup that values teamwork, transparency, and innovation. We maintain a work atmosphere that’s light-hearted and jovial, but when we need to get something done, we can switch gears and move fast. We are deeply passionate about making ocean data widely available to ocean communities and enthusiasts with powerful tools and visualizations.
We are looking for a new team member to help drive our rapidly expanding global ocean weather forecast capabilities. You will lead the development of large-scale atmospheric models and expand our surface wind forecasting capability through integration of state of the models and new data assimilation strategies. You will be part of a team that aims to create a revolutionary new approach to metocean forecasting, and are not afraid to try new approaches or abandon those that do not work. Most importantly, you are a quick learner, thrive in an environment that is focused on innovation and doing things differently, and you are excited about developing and applying new strategies to modeling and data interpretation across a breadth of applications.
It is the responsibility of every employee to contribute to a positive work environment through cooperative and professional interactions with co-workers, customers and vendors.
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status, disability, or any other factors prohibited by law.
