Windward is Hiring a Data Analyst
Come Join a Growing Team!
Windward is a specialized data company, analyzing and organizing the world’s maritime information. Today, ships transport over 90% of global trade, impacting each one of us and all industries worldwide. But despite the huge stakes at sea, the data on ship activity is largely inaccessible and unusable: it is massive, fragmented and often intentionally manipulated.
We are transforming the oceans of data into actionable alerts and insights for our customers, allowing them to solve problems, make better decisions, and monetize their interests at sea. Windward’s technology, initially developed to meet the needs of Intelligence communities, is in wide use among security agencies worldwide. We are now bringing the same unprecedented visibility on what’s happening at sea to the financial markets and oil & gas sector.
