Job Opportunities

Meteorologist / Weather Risk Analyst / Statistical Climatologist

There is a growing awareness of the high importance if improved weather and climate information to energy companies. e-Acumen is a software and consulting firm that provides physical risk management products to electricity and gas marketers. We currently serve many of the top-50 power marketers in the United States. The weather derivatives / weather risk business unit of e-Acumen is looking for a meteorologist or climatologist with an interest in applying his/her expertise to helping energy firms more effectively manage their exposure to weather. Experience in commercial forecasting services would be an advantage but is not a necessity. Interest in business and a dedication to showing economic value-added of improved weather and climate information is crucial.

Our principal products/services include:

  • Weather risk consulting
  • Weather derivative pricing and risk management (software and consulting)
  • Weather forecasts from one day to seasonal time scales
  • Analysis of forecast accuracy and determination of forecast model biases
  • Simulation of the relationships between energy commodities and weather for trading and risk management

Our ideal candidate has an MS in atmospheric science or meteorology as well as knowledge or experience in trading. Understanding of basic financial contracts would be helpful (options, futures, etc.). Our clients use a wide range of financial contracts to manage their risk and to improve profitability, so the candidate should have an interest and a high level of motivation to learn financial instruments in energy markets. While research is a part of this position, the candidate will also be involved in presenting to clients and potential clients and must be able to motivate the importance of weather risk management in a financial context.

The position will be in our offices in our Broomfield, Colorado offices – close to Boulder and Denver. To learn more about e-Acumen, please visit our web site: Please send a resume or questions to:
