We are currently seeking a talented Hydrodynamic Modeller to join our Research and Development team. MetOcean Solutions, a division of New Zealand’s MetService, is a science-based consultancy and forecast supplier providing specialist numerical modelling and analytical solutions in meteorology and oceanography. With offices across New Zealand (Auckland, New Plymouth, Raglan, and Wellington) and in Sydney, Australia (MetraWeather) our international team works on projects and data analysis world-wide. We passionately believe in rigorous scientific method and in applying the latest information technology to data services. MetOcean occupies several niche marine consultancy and service roles and has a rapidly growing forecast and hindcast sector.

We are seeking a self-starter to work in our operational environment that includes the design and implementation of a data assimilation framework for hindcast and operational forecast hydrodynamical modelling system. You will also develop code and processes for existing oceanographic observations.

Our employees enjoy an open-office, upbeat culture within a coastal town environment in the North Island of New Zealand. This position would be primarily based in Raglan with some opportunity to work from other offices in the future. Raglan is a small beach side town on the West Coast, just a short drive west of Hamilton or a two-hour drive south of Auckland. It is known for its world-class surf, stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and inspiring arts.

Our company promotes a positive working environment to achieve our shared goals, supported by flexible hours to ensure a healthy work-life balance. We encourage our people to bring fresh ideas to the table, rise to any challenge, and remain passionate about our products and the company mission.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a growing environment with an interesting and challenging mix of applied research, science and technology. You must have a post-graduate qualification (minimum of M.Sc.) in a relevant physical science or related field.
