Job description

Operational Meteorologist with Programming Background 

How would you like your weather forecast to make a huge difference every day? Because of our work, highway contractors decide if they should close roads to pour concrete; Major League Baseball decides if they should delay or cancel a game; airports decide if they can keep runways open with their in-house crew, or if they need to call in their snow contractor with massive equipment and personnel; and utilities decide if they should schedule emergency crews depending upon the type of ice storm expected. 

Time is money for our clients, and these critical business decisions require accurate and pro-active weather consulting.  As Weather or Not grows, how we communicate decision support is increasingly dependent upon improved digital representation of the weather impacts to clients operations.  Here’s where your programming and digital design skills will make a major difference. 

If you want to share your talents in an exciting work environment, we encourage you to apply to become a part of our team.

  • An unflappable ability to meet deadlines
  • Ability to multi-task under pressure while maintaining a calm demeanor
  • Strong skills using GEMPAK, GRAnalyst, GREarth, Bufkit, MS Office, Linux required, experience with GIS a plus
  • Strong programming skills with Python, JavaScript, HTML required, other languages optional, but preferred
  • Innovative thinking while developing digital solutions to weather impacts preferred

We offer a comprehensive compensation and benefit package, a collegial work environment (remote and on-site), and the ability for you to grow your skills in the ever-changing world of meteorology.  If this position sounds like the right fit for you, we’d love to hear from you.  To apply, please send cover letter, resume (including reference contacts) and an outline of salary expectations to:
