Location United States
Date Posted February 21, 2019
Category Geophysicist
Job Type Permanent


Do you want to advance the future of electromagnetic technologies? Are you itching to be a part of a cutting-edge
technology company and a world leader in electromagnetic geophysics? Do you want to work for a company who’s
intensely focused on developing intelligent innovations AND great relationships?

GroundMetrics has a reputation of taking on tough challenges and is growing through rethinking conventional wisdom
and breaking through walls to get the job done!

In this role, you’ll thrive as Software Engineer and Geophysicist combining your two passions to drive innovation and
help ensure our game-changing ideas continue leading the energy industry.

You’ll design and develop new software solutions as well as improve performance of existing data acquisition, noise
cancellation, and modeling software. You’ll lead code optimization efforts for reduced processing times and memory

You’ll flex your geophysics muscles by running models and inversions. You’ll hold yourself to quick turnaround on
modeling projects and feasibility reports. You’ll take charge of inversions and will run them with the customer
objective in mind.

You will not only be a key player in GroundMetrics growth but will also have a direct impact on an emerging
technology leader in the energy space.

What experience will help get you there?

You are innovative and RESOURCEFUL. You have a BIAS TO ACTION and break through walls to get things done. You
OWN your desk and embrace responsibility to deliver results. You continuously CREATE VALUE through quality, on-
time delivery.

You are a creative and pragmatic problem solver who is comfortable following proven methods and eager to change
procedures that don’t work. You’ll are a strong coder with five (5) or more years of experience in software
development in Python. As an added plus, you may also have experience writing and debugging in MATLAB. You also
have experience with analog and digital signal processing and algorithms.

You’ve used your advanced degree (minimum of Master’s) in geophysics and experience with electromagnetics to
master either modeling and inversion processes, instrumentation and field work, or signal processing and noise
cancellation techniques. It is a plus if you have CSEM data processing and interpretation experience and have worked
before with ultrasensitive sensors. You’ll also have an interest in how deep learning techniques can be deployed to
get faster results.

You are known for being solution oriented while communicating clearly and effectively on the potential, progress, and
hurdles of your projects. You are a champion of changing priorities and maintain a determination to complete
projects. You are comfortable with uncertainty because you know it’s a catalyst for true innovation. You thrive on
moving and failing fast and aren’t afraid of mistakes because you know they are fuel for fast innovation. You have
history of being able to manage time, prioritize, and work independently with little direction.

We are looking for a talented and versatile software engineer and geophysicist who wants to work in a fast-paced,
game-changing setting where you can truly make a difference in the company and in the industry. Location of this
role is flexible.

Who are we?

San Diego-based GroundMetrics is an early-stage, fast growth company commercializing cutting-edge electromagnetic
sensor system technologies and predictive data analytics for underground exploration and production. We offer
advanced underground surveying and imaging technologies, primarily to the oil, gas, geothermal and carbon
sequestration industries, but the core technology is truly a platform that extends well beyond those industries. Our
unique technologies and innovative approaches unlock new applications and markets. We are passionate about
delivering EM sensing solutions and know that building an awesome team is the most important part of getting it

What we’ve done!
GroundMetrics has invented and developed the eQube™ – the only onshore low frequency capacitive electric-field
sensor (patented); a new borehole casing source method (patented); the Eos™ – the only EM sensor integration with a
wireless seismic data recorder (enabling the only real-time, in-field EM quality control system); and the Imon™ – the
most accurate source waveform monitoring system in use. We’ve applied machine learning techniques in a new way
to take full advantage of large, diverse EM datasets (patents pending). Next we plan to invent and implement new EM
inversion methods and commercialize new applications such as casing integrity, carbon capture and storage
monitoring and more. All of our technologies are grounded in both computational modeling and the large volumes of
onshore EM data we acquire (1 million measurements and counting).
