Description

Cloud to Street is the world’s leading remote flood mapping platform. We use global satellites and remote sensing AI to monitor flood risk and detect worldwide floods in real-time. Seeded by Google, we have been used by governments across almost 20 countries for disaster relief efforts. Partnering with top insurers, we are now launching the first commercial parametric flood insurance product to better protect climate-vulnerable communities.

You will work closely with our remote sensing scientists and project managers to improve Cloud to Street’s near real-time flood monitoring product to support global disaster risk reduction.

As remote sensing analyst you will apply your geospatial talents toward reducing the impact of flooding in low and middle-income countries. In this role, you will take deep ownership over being the first line of defense for validating spatial flood data from our platform, and report flood risks to users in a digestible and actionable way.
