A New Frontier in Weather Technology

Mission

It's time to expect more from your forecast. Soon everyone will know exactly when it is going to start and stop raining. We build the technology to make it happen.

Our Team

We have a bunch of smart software engineers and entrepreneurial-minded people in Australia, the United States and Peru who are excited about big technical challenges and creating a great user experience.

Currently offering student work placements in Melbourne: apply by 22 October 2014.

Technology

Preheat the Amazon EC2 cloud. In a large mixing bowl, take 2 cups of radar data, mix in 1 cup of crowdsourced weather reports and bake with statistical analysis. Repeat every few minutes.

API

The same data that powers our Minutely app can provide accurate short-term rain predictions for your own applications. See the API specification, and contact us for a key.
