What’s the weather like tomorrow? 🌦️
How much energy will my solar power plant generate this week? Is this flight path safe and efficient? Will there be enough rain to water my crops? As the weather affects many industries’ performance, businesses keep a close eye on what’s happening in the skies.

At Meteomatics, we’re a team of proud nerds who deliver the most accurate weather data to over 400 companies and research institutions worldwide, helping them accelerate the energy transition, reduce the business’ impact on the environment, and make products and services safer for society.

Meteomatics is growing faster than you can say lightning! And we’re now looking for a new HPC Support Engineer to join us in St. Gallen! ⚡

You will work in one of our development teams with our Chief Technology Officer, Christian Schluchter, managing petabytes of weather data and developing high-performance algorithms. Be ready to unlock your creativity and programming skills, as you’ll build bespoke solutions for top international clients and contribute to solving important societal and environmental problems.


What you’ll do

  • Provide technical support for the operation and maintenance of HPC systems and software used in meteorological modeling
  • Work closely with scientists and researchers to optimize the performance of their models on HPC systems
  • Troubleshoot and debug issues related to HPC systems and software
  • Collaborate with other members of the team to develop and implement best practices for HPC system administration


What you’ll bring

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or a related field

  • Experience with HPC technologies such as cluster management software, parallel file systems, and job schedulers
  • Excellent programming skills to manage collaborative projects and experience with Git

  • Strong communication and problem-solving skills


What you’ll get

  • International environment: we come from all over the globe and have very different backgrounds
  • Hybrid work: we love meeting our colleagues at the office, but we also know how good it is to work from home when we feel more introspective. You can choose!
  • Fun: our HR team is keen on organizing social activities. Join us for barbecues at the terrace, ski day on the Swiss mountains, summer off-site events, after-work games…
  • 5 vacation weeks: we work better when we’re well-rested!
