Are you interested in science and technology? Do you have a passion for weather and climate change? Are you retired or do you have a flexible job? We’re looking for people like you to launch high altitude, long duration weather balloons this coming hurricane season. These balloons fly higher than airplanes and capture atmospheric data which can better predict weather from hurricanes to wildfires. WindBorne Systems was founded to improve weather forecasting, and by launching balloons for us you could be an integral part of that advancement.

Pay is $20/hr for training and $30/launch, plus $150/month base rate if we can use your property to launch and store equipment. Launches can start as early as June, with most occurring in August and September, and potential for continuation afterwards.

Anywhere within 50 miles of Gainesville, ideally in a more rural area.

  • Flexible schedule -- ideally self employed or retired
  • Owning property with a clear area of at least 50x50 ft to launch balloons from, and storage space for compressed gas cylinders and balloons
  • Experience working with compressed gas cylinders
  • Excellent at following a prescribed process
  • Fast and detailed communications skills
  • Comfortable working on the internet and using basic computer programs
