About WeatherXM

Discover the Future of Weather with WeatherXM

Founded in 2022 in Zug, Switzerland, WeatherXM.com is revolutionizing weather monitoring. The brainchild of a core team that has been innovating together since 2015, WeatherXM emerged from the success of Ex Machina (exm.gr), a pioneer in IIoT environmental monitoring and weather analytics serving major enterprises.

Supported by Visionary Investors

WeatherXM's groundbreaking approach has attracted investment from top-tier investors like Lightspeed Faction, Arca, Alumni Ventures, Red Beard Ventures, GS Futures Placeholder, Consensys, Protocol Labs, Metaplanet, Borderless Capital, and SOSV HAX/DLAB. Notable visionary angel investors such as Juan Benet (Filecoin) and Ele Diakomichalis (Radicle) also backed the project, underscoring its potential to redefine weather services.

What is WeatherXM?

WeatherXM is a decentralized weather information network (DePIN) that leverages a dense network of community-deployed weather stations to deliver the most accurate weather services possible. By involving individuals and businesses in setting up WeatherXM stations, the network generates real-time, hyper-local weather data that surpasses traditional methods.

Join the WeatherXM Network

Participants in the WeatherXM network can set up weather stations and earn WXM tokens for the data they collect. Businesses looking to utilize this precise weather data for their services can acquire licenses using WXM tokens. This innovative model ensures a cost-efficient approach by delegating capital expenditure, installation, and maintenance to station owners.

A Dense, Real-Time Weather Network

WeatherXM is building an extensive network of weather stations that already includes over 5,000 stations in more than 80 countries. This network generates real-time weather data and hyperlocal forecasts essential for weather-dependent industries. Unlike national weather organizations that follow a centralized model, WeatherXM's decentralized approach provides unparalleled accuracy and coverage.

Web3-Native Data

WeatherXM’s data is inherently web3-native, digitally signed by a secure element in all stations and stored on Filecoin. This secure, hyper-local weather data serves as the foundation for building on-chain weather protection and parametric weather insurance protocols.

We are looking for a Backend Developer to join our dedicated cross-functional team. You should be comfortable with Web2 and ideally Web3 frameworks, developing for various software platforms, integrating and testing new software, as well as know your way around development and troubleshooting tools. We expect you to be a team player and have a desire to participate in a startup that is constantly changing and growing, and be responsible for making some really cool stuff happen.
