Who we are

Climate change is causing deep uncertainty at all levels of society, reducing the security of all land-based assets and posing a multi-level security threat for the functioning of enterprises, societies, and governments.

Mitiga employs cutting-edge science and technology to mitigate the risks posed by climate-driven perils. And we need your help.

Who you are

For our growing atmospheric hazard modelling team, we are seeking two seasoned Numerical Weather Prediction Specialists, one with expertise in statistical downscaling and bias correction techniques and one with expertise in atmospheric dynamics related to extreme events.

As an expert in atmospheric dynamics, physical modelling, and/or statistical downscaling, you will play a key role in accelerating our business with an environmental impact.

You're an expert and you have honed your skills through a Ph.D. degree in atmospheric sciences, meteorology, atmospheric physics and dynamics, or related field, or a master's degree complemented by a long track record of experience. It would be great if you also have experience working with large-scale computing platforms (e.g., cloud or high-performance computers), as well as in the private sector.

For the first position, you're skilled in bias adjustment and statistical downscaling of climate model data, and you've demonstrated your expertise in applying statistical analysis, machine learning, data mining, or related techniques to resolve small-scale features from large-scale coarse resolution analyses, forecasts, or simulations.

For the second position, you are skilled in analyzing atmospheric dynamics relevant to extreme weather events, their predictability on shorter timescale (from early warning systems to seasonal predictions) and assessment in courser resolution climate model simulations.

Additionally, integrating climate simulations and model uncertainties into evaluating the impact of future climate projections on weather and atmospheric hazard extremes is something you excel at. Experience in assessing severe convective storm, extreme precipitation, drought, extreme wind or extreme temperature risks is a plus.

Your love for learning drives you to embrace new and challenging areas. As a team player, you enjoy collaborating and building cool stuff together with your team mates. You appreciate the fast-paced, results-oriented culture of a startup and are prepared to apply academic rigour to products that make a difference in businesses and people's lives.
