Senior Data Engineer - IL

At ClimaCell we are changing the way people and businesses are experiencing weather.
ClimaCell creates a Micro weather technology that can sense and forecast weather on a street level, minute by minute, in every corner of the globe.
By doing so, ClimaCell changes people's lives, disrupt existing industries and creates industries that did not exist before.

With customers like Delta, JetBlue, Via, the Patriots, and many others and with $65 million in VC funding, we are on a mission to map all the weather on the globe and become the largest weather tech company in the world.

What you'll be doing
In order to create the best possible weather predictions, we need a LOT of observations that generate a lot of data. Our wireless sensing technology depends on hundreds of thousands of measurements, collected and aggregated, every single minute. Our short-term forecasts rely on having the absolute most recent radar imagery with a measurement for every 1km cell of a region (tens of millions of points for just the US). The list goes on and on. All of that data needs to be ingested, processed, and stored continuously, for every minute of every day.
