At Saildrone, we believe in using ocean data at scale to derive insights that affect humanity. We are seeking curious minds to join our team and help improve and expand the insights that can be derived from revolutionary ocean data.
Our mission is to create the highest resolution ocean data set in the world and use it to make global processes such as weather forecasting, carbon cycling, global fishing, seafloor topography, and maritime security more predictable, visible, and actionable.
We strongly believe in proof through demonstration, and we would rather let our results speak for themselves—from our origins harnessing wind power to break speed records to the extreme endurance of our autonomous Saildrone USVs and or the scientifically vetted quality of our data.
Above all, we are a team of passionate and fun-loving individuals with a diverse background of expertise and a shared culture of transformation through action. From designing hardware for extreme conditions to fearless software testing in the most remote parts of the world, we tackle challenges where few others dare to go and look for 1000x impact wherever we can create it.
Saildrone HQ is located in sunny Alameda, a short ferry ride from San Francisco, in a former airplane hangar that was once used to film The Matrix.
We offer a comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental, and vision, and maternity/paternity.
