Working at WindBorne

WindBorne Systems is supercharging weather models with a unique proprietary data source: a global constellation of next-generation, AI-enabled weather balloons targeting the most critical atmospheric data. We design, manufacture, and operate our own balloons, using the data they collect to generate new, novel weather intelligence. Our mission is to eliminate weather uncertainty, and in the process help humanity adapt to climate change, be that predicting hurricanes or speeding the adoption of renewables.

Our progress so far

WindBorne’s platform is already proven in operation. We landed our first million-dollar contract within a year of our founding, and we have since consistently grown our revenue and customer base. We supply critical weather observations to a number of federal agencies, including NOAA, the U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Navy, and we also collaborate with international meteorological agencies.

Looking forward

Over the next year, we are scaling our current production and building new products to meet the demands of our existing customers, as well as future customers in the private and public sectors. We are also adding new sensors to our current platform, for capabilities including air quality measurement, lightning detection, and greenhouse gas detection.
