About MetDesk

MetDesk is the UK’s leading private sector weather forecasting business with a growing world-wide focus, currently specialising in transport and energy. Weather is one of the most exciting industries on the planet and this is your opportunity to become an important part of the fastest growing commercial weather forecasting company in Europe. We deal in huge data so you’ll be using the latest technologies to present and interact at speed in the coolest ways possible. Your skills can give a gas trader the edge on a multimillion pound trade as the next ‘Beast from the East’ is first picked up by weather models. You can keep the roads safe on icy nights as gritters are shown where and when to treat. The sky is the limit!

MetDesk is headquartered in the picturesque Chiltern town of Wendover, which has a regular direct train service to London. If you live in commuting range, come and join the fun in the office. If you live further out, don’t be put off, we’re flexible on remote working. Innovation is tiring, so you’ll need your 33 days holiday.

You’ll be working closely with commercial staff, trained meteorologists and IT specialists. There’ll be pressure to deliver, a chance to excite and the opportunity to mentor and inspire up and coming front end developers.
