Spire Global is a space-to-cloud analytics company that owns and operates the largest multi-purpose constellation of satellites. Its proprietary data and algorithms provide the most advanced maritime, aviation, and weather tracking in the world. In addition to its constellation, Spire’s data infrastructure includes a global ground station network and 24/7 operations that provide real-time global coverage of every point on Earth.
Spire Global is seeking a Data Assimilation Scientist to contribute to the development of advanced Data Assimilation (DA) methods; they will utilize data from Spire’s GNSS-RO/GNSS-R satellite constellation and other sources to create world-class Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) forecasts. This is an exciting opportunity for motivated scientists to make a difference through advancing DA techniques and assimilating unprecedented numbers of Radio Occultation (GNSS-RO) and Reflectometry (GNSS-R) observations. The successful candidate will join the Data Assimilation Group in Boulder, Colorado; they will work on issues of international significance with top-level scientists at Spire, as well as scientists from around the world.
The successful candidate will work with Spire DA, weather forecast, and software engineering teams to implement and evaluate cutting-edge DA methods. They will assimilate space, air, and ground based observations into a global NWP model. The assimilation of Spire’s own GNSS data into this model represents a unique opportunity; never before have so many GNSS observations been assimilated into an NWP model. Responsibilities will include the following:
