About Us

Open Ocean is a fast growing innovative company with an ambitious vision: to 
conceive and develop the most ingenious online software that will greatly 
improve safety and profitability of all offshore industrial projects. Based in 
Brest and Paris, Open Ocean has converted dozens of years of experience from 
its team into a unique SaaS plateform which gives instant access to high level 
expertise in metocean analysis for the planning, development and dimensioning 
of any offshore project or infrastructure. Our team combines scientific 
expertise, proficiency of innovative technologies, strategic vision and culture 
of efficiency to generate long term impacts on the sector. We strongly 
emphasize sharing and feedback from our customers through a lean startup 
methodology. Being already a reference in the ocean renewable energy sector, 
Open Ocean is now expanding its development internationally towards the 
offshore wind and oil& gas sectors.

Today, a major step in our development implies the re-enforcement of our 
modeling team with a WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting) model specialist.

Your challenge

Be recognized for your expertise by bringing your skills to a fast growing 
company, where you can contribute directly to the success story of a future 
major player of the offshore energy sector :

•    Develop regional implementations of WRF within an optimized downscaling 
strategy to create hindcast databases, validate the results with offshore wind 
standard scores and refine models if necessary.

•    Set up data assimilation in the WRF implementations.

•    Participate to the development of a toolbox for statistical analyses 
following the standards of the offshore wind sector

•    Be part of a scientific team.

•    Clearly explain your methodology, the problems you are facing for both 
specialists and neophytes.

•    Propose simple and innovating methods to solve complex problems.

About you

•    You have relevant experience in atmospheric modeling with WRF.

•    You have a keen instinct for problem solving and are highly resourceful 
with Linux/Unix.

•    Shell and Python scripting, and object-oriented programming are required.

•    You are able to demonstrate proficiency in deploying models in support of 
a range of atmospheric conditions, especially in the 100 first meters of the 
atmospheric column (knowledge in downscaling and flux algorithms) and to select 
appropriate model domains and physical parametrization.

•    You are highly resourceful with modeling parallelization and optimization.

Being a part of our team will provide you an excellent opportunity to develop 
your modeling skills, to have good interaction with wave and hydrodynamic 
modelers and also to interact with clients.
