Meteorological Applications Developers…Do you exist?09 May , 2012 | 12
As I mentioned in my previous post, “Is Meteorology turning into Computer Science”…weather companies are on the look out for meteorological developers. That’s where the hiring from weather companies seems to be focused these days. If you are a degreed meteorologist who can code in multiple programming languages…companies want to talk to you ASAP. If you are good, they are ready to throw down some serious cash!
One of my buddies at Earth Sat Corporation is hiring for two positions. The first is for a Web Applications Developer and the second is for a Meteorological Applications Developer. These positions will create new weather analysis products and systems and have the chance to interact with forecasters on a day to day basis. Might be a great way to get your foot in the door into a large weather company. EarthSat is also a leader in the energy weather business…and it’s a great way to meet a lot of their energy trading clients too.
Folks, there are many other companies I know trying to fill these types of roles. I’ll be happy to help as best I can. Email me (or respond in the comments section below) and I’ll hook you up directly with the hiring managers. I’m always an advocate to push for weather companies to hire talented meteorologists….even if they are for developer positions.
