Scoot Science is the ocean company. We make the oceans manageable, insurable, and investable. Scoot Science is a California-based, remote-first startup founded in 2017 by a team of experienced oceanographers, agricultural economists, software engineers, and data scientists. We’re an investor backed company with a current roster of over 18 employees. We promote responsible and sustainable use of our oceans.
Our team is dedicated to illuminating the linkages between ocean conditions and the ocean economy through data analysis, visualization, and forecasting. Our goal is to give our customers the best insight into what’s currently happening, and what will be happening, in their coastal oceans. We give our customers a critical edge for marine operations, risk management, and long term planning, by combining the best available ocean and atmospheric data with in-house analytics and visualization.
If you love the ocean and science, and are excited about the intersection of technology, ocean data, and operational climate change decision making... let’s talk.
We are hiring enterprising and motivated software engineers and computer scientists with excellent development and coding skills. These team members will contribute to our SeaState Dashboard, bridging the gap between ocean sensors, data infrastructure, and user experience for our aquaculture customers.
The Scoot Science Team
Our team is distributed and we practice remote work. We communicate asynchronously and in real time to foster a collaborative work environment. We also participate in periodic in-person meetings to focus on team building and strategy. We encourage all of our team members to be continuous learners and diversify their skills through professional development.
