Software engineer positions on CliMA project at Caltech

Do you love translating mathematical concepts into code? Do you find shaving microseconds off your function calls satisfying? Are you tenacious in tracking down obscure bugs? Can you build high-level abstractions without sacrificing performance? Have you helped maintain large shared codebases, shepherding changes while keeping continuous integration tests passing? Do you enjoy learning about new technologies and pushing their limits? Are you interested in joining world-leading experts to help solve one of the most important scientific problems of our time?

If you answered yes to some of these questions, the Climate Modeling Alliance (CliMA) at Caltech would like to hear from you. CliMA is a multi-disciplinary team of engineers and scientists developing a new class of Earth system models to predict future climate conditions with calibrated uncertainties. Our model is the first that automatically learns from global observations and targeted high-resolution simulations of clouds and other elements of the Earth system to provide the actionable information we need to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

And it’s all in Julia.

Do you have also remote positions or does one have to be based in Caltech?

Officially these are based at Caltech, but we may be able to make remote appointments in exceptional cases. In short, I would encourage you to apply, but please do make clear in your cover letter if you would only be available for a remote position.
