I’m UX Architect at ClimateCorp!
First off, this post is way overdue. I started a new job in May 2011! As you may already know, I’m now the User Experience Architect at The Climate Corporation (formerly known as WeatherBill):
The Climate Corporation Helps People and Businesses Adapt to Climate Change
The company’s unique technology platform enables the real-time pricing and purchasing of customizable weather insurance using proprietary global weather simulation modeling and local weather monitoring systems.
The company protects the $3 trillion global agriculture industry from the financial impact of adverse weather – the cause of over 90% of crop loss – with fully automated weather insurance products.
The company was founded by a couple of ex-Googlers, and they were recently backed by Google Ventures, so as expected, I feel right at home. The offices are right by South Park in the SoMa district in downtown San Francisco, so my commute is so much better than it used to be. I’m really excited about this opportunity, and I’m so inspired by The Climate Corporation’s mission and the things this team has in the works! In October we launched the rebranding and an all-new site design, this month we launch our 2012 Total Weather Insurance product for Corn and Soybeans (you may have seen my soybean costume for Halloween), and there’s more to come.
