Our mission

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

Mitiga is a spinoff of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, which hosts MareNostrum, one of the most powerful supercomputers in Europe.

Mitiga's mission is firmly rooted in employing cutting-edge science and technology to mitigate the multifaceted risks posed by climate-driven perils. Our approach spans a spectrum of temporal scales, from real-time and annual forecasts to projections spanning the next century. This comprehensive perspective on risk, coupled with our capacity to transfer risks to capital markets via catastrophe bonds, positions us to significantly contribute to enhanced climate mitigation, resilience, and equity.

And we need you.

Who you are

We are looking for someone to take charge of the flood models powering EarthScan, our platform that provides essential information on climate risks for reporting and investment purposes. These coastal and riverine flood models are crucial to helping our customers understand the potential impact of climate change on their assets.

As part of our continued growth, we are looking to expand and refine our flooding models, taking them to the next level in quality.

Your impact

You are someone who can translate the state of the art in flood modelling into the climate risk setting. You consider the details of both the physical and human flood processes, all while acknowledging the uncertainty of climate predictions. You understand how to communicate flood risk to clients, both on its own and in relation to other climate perils. In this role, you would;

  • Take on technical ownership of Mitiga’s flood models, collaborating with the product and science teams to define the development roadmap for our flooding products.
  • Lead development efforts to improve and validate our in-house flood models
  • Lead the exploration and evaluation of 3rd party datasets that could complement our current offering, especially with regards to pluvial flooding.
  • Lead the technical integration of 3rd party datasets into the current technology
  • Advise our Impact team on appropriate ways to incorporate flood risk into our ratings and impact calculations.
  • Be the ‘go-to’ expert for questions about flooding both within the company and with our customers.
