Tomorrow.io Space division is responsible for the development of unique spaceborne sensing systems and for the overall space mission, from architecture through implementation. The data being collected will be integrated seamlessly into Tomorrow.io existing forecasting and modelling systems and will revolutionize global weather forecasting and insights.
We are looking for a Scientist that will focus on the instrument (radar) data processing, instrument performance definition, algorithm development, and calibration/validation methods for a novel space-based radar payload that Tomorrow.io is developing.
As a Scientist within the Space division at Tomorrow.io, you will play a critical role in the development, low-level radar data processing, and operation of a novel spaceborne radar system. You will work with a multidisciplinary team of hardware developers, software developers, systems engineers, and scientists. Your focus will span the instrument design and performance specifications through generation of L1 data products, and your work will include development of data processing methods, simulations, radar testing, and instrument calibration/validation.
What you bring:
- Background in airborne and/or spaceborne instruments for weather/climate applications
- A PhD in mathematics, physics, engineering, or a comparable field with application in atmospheric science
- Extensive background in payload data simulations and L0 radar data processing through L1 data products (or higher)
- Experience working within multidisciplinary technical teams
- Experience working with external vendors and subcontractors
You might also have:
- Direct experience with mmWave radar systems
- Experience with antenna design
- Experience with systems engineering and hardware development programs
- Experience with field testing and validation of instrument performance
- Experience working on cloud computing systems, especially Amazon AWS or Google Cloud
- Familiarity with weather forecasting methods
- 5+ years experience beyond your PhD
What youll do:
- Develop radar data processing methods and software (focusing on L0-L1, collaborating on L1-L2)
- Develop and validate simulation methods to quantify and characterize system performance
- Develop sensor performance requirements and system conops
- Participate in test campaigns and associated data processing
Proof of eligibility to work in the United States lawfully must be provided
