MetService is a global leader providing forecasts, weather research, and delivering a range of unique specialised IT based meteorological solutions. We work in a commercial environment where business needs drive our activities while allowing us to use our knowledge to come up with innovative ways to achieve lasting results in a global market.  Our business is all about quality, innovation, and having a strong sense of pride in what we do and who we are.


We have a great opportunity in our Forecast Research and Development team for someone enthusiastic about forecasting and statistical analysis.  


In the role of either Research Scientist or Meteorological Developer (depending on your expertise) you will be involved in the development and testing of new automated weather forecasting systems. This may include finding advancements in numerical models of the atmosphere or in our statistical and machine learning methods.  By the development of high-quality improvements to our operational software, you will help bring those advancements into production.  You will also be responsive to customer requests and dedicated in your support of operations.


To join us, ideally, you will have an honours degree or above in mathematics or physics, or demonstrated experience in developing robust 24/7 modelling systems, or a strong computer science background. You are proficient in high level computer languages, preferably Python and/or Julia, have gained experience with Docker and/or Conda for deployment, and used a number of infrastructure components of Amazon Web Services. If you have worked as a Research Software Engineer before we definitely want to hear about you.


Knowledge of WRF modeling and/or statistical techniques for forecasting and/or meteorology would be beneficial, along with profound knowledge about Linux OS, or experience with running operational forecasting systems. And, if you are a good communicator of scientific and mathematical concepts to non-scientific people, then we want to hear from you! 


Why join us? We enjoy achieving, we appreciate creativity and we recognise everyone’s unique skills and qualities. You’ll be joining a global business passionate about connecting the science of weather to deliver products and services that really make a difference for our customers and members of the public.
