OpenGoSim is hiring a new software developer to join our team in the mission to deliver the next generation CO2 storage simulator. Apply to be part of the energy transition!

  • Start Date: As soon as possible.
  • Location : Remote/Hybrid/Office
  • Salary : based on experience

Your Role

You will be working on our graphical software package Stratus, designing and implementing new capabilities, as well as maintaining and supporting the existing code. Stratus prepares the input and visualises the output of our CO2 storage simulator, while providing a multi-platform submission system. You will be discussing and trying new ideas in a stimulating environment, with the opportunity to shape the future of a new software product and establish new modelling practices in the industry. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in CCS modelling and software development.

The ideal candidate has a background in developing graphical packages for engineering applications, such as reservoir engineering, fluid dynamics or structural finite element analysis, and experience in using libraries such as modern OpenGL and wxWidgets would be useful. Stratus is mainly coded in c++11, with some use of Python to access cloud capabilities. We welcome applications from developers with lead experience or with the willingness to become the Stratus lead developer, as we anticipate adding other team members as the user base continues to grow.

About us

OpenGoSim is a company specialising in the development of reservoir engineering software for subsurface CO2 storage, a new and fast-growing industry ready to make a key contribution to our society in achieving the net-zero-emissions target. With clients at the forefront of the carbon capture and storage technology, and a strong innovation culture, OpenGoSim will provide accurate and easy to use modelling tools for the next generation of reservoir engineers, who will be facing the new challenges posed by the energy transition.

We are very flexible about work location, and we offer you the possibility to work remotely from the UK and Europe, from home or from a private office in your chosen location. And if you prefer, you can always join one of our team members in Edinburgh, Taunton or Barcelona. You will be required to travel once every 2-3 months, for meetings with the rest of the team, and other work duties such as training courses and visits to clients.
