  • Regularly update and monitor GWC’s customized/customer-specific forecast offerings such as
    regional (ISO-wide) renewable energy forecasts.
  • Develop scripts to improve forecast products, verification techniques, and to advance R+D goals.

Requirements

  • BS or MS degree in meteorology, atmospheric or computer science, or related field.
  • Experience with common meteorological principles, applications, statistical analysis, and data
    formats such as netCDF and GRIB.
  • Strong knowledge of the Python programming language.
  • Knowledge and experience working in the Linux environment.
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to interact directly with customers and translate
    customer feedback into concrete steps for product improvement.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team, to contribute to technical discussions while
    also showing initiative to offer new ideas for product development.

Additional desired skills

  • Experience in additional programming languages, especially: C++, HTML, JavaScript, SQL.
  • Experience in numerical weather prediction and/or NWP post-processing techniques.
  • Familiarity with shell scripting techniques.
  • Experience in wind and solar power generation forecasting
