Radar Remote Sensing Scientist
Cloud to Street is the recognized authority on using satellites and AI to track floods anywhere on earth. Founded by two climate experts with initial funding from Google, the team comes from NASA, Facebook, Google, Willis Towers Watson, and Oscar Insurance. Our platform has been used by 17 countries to fill critical information gaps for disaster planning and response, and is the official emergency flood mapping provider to the United Nations. The technology is now enabling insurers to expand protection to billions of uninsured assets and people through partnerships with Munich RE and Willis Towers Watson. We recently raised a large seed from top investors that will be announced soon.
We are looking for a best-in-class remote sensing scientist with expertise in analysis of high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery to lead algorithm development for flood detection. You will work closely with our team’s remote sensing scientists, machine learning engineers, and hydrologists to build novel flood analytics and practical decision-support tools for disaster responders, flood managers, and insurers. You should be able to creatively integrate high resolution SAR observations with auxiliary datasets to tackle challenging problems, such as making flood maps in urban areas.
