In the time it takes you to read this job description our low earth orbit nanosatellites would have passed overhead at least three times traveling at around 8km a second. Onboard, the satellites are collecting and downloading radio signals (data) that help drive value across the Maritime, Weather and Aviation industries.
The Spire Weather team is focused on taking that data and impacting the world in positive ways.
Spire Global is seeking a Data Assimilation Scientist that will contribute to the Company’s effort of developing advanced Data Assimilation (DA) methods in support of our satellite missions. This is an exciting opportunity for motivated scientists to make a difference through advancing DA techniques and assimilating unprecedented large amounts of Radio Occultation (GNSS-RO), Reflectomerty (GNSS-R) and other satellite data.
The successful candidate will join DA Team at Spire branch office in Boulder, Colorado, USA, and will have opportunities to work with top-level scientists at Spire, as well as scientists from around the world, on issues that matter.
Responsibilities of your role
The successful candidate will work with Spire DA, global weather forecasting and software engineering teams to implement and evaluate cutting-edge DA methods and assimilate large amounts of GNSS-RO, GNSS-R and other satellite data into the Global Validation Model (GVM). Responsibilities will include the following tasks:
