As of April 3, Prefect is hiring interns (work with me on the Integrations team Job Application for Integrations Intern (Summer 2022) at Prefect), software engineers, product managers, graphic designers, account executives, and so much more (see the list here: Jobs at Prefect)
How does this relate to weather or climate? Well, let’s imagine you have a pipeline that downloads weather data to ingest into a forecast model. What happens if the data is late, or the download fails? Prefect can manage your download task to make it more resilient through automatic retries, or even if all the retries fail, it’ll log all of this for you! No more cron needed; Prefect integrates directly into your Python code easily! See an example of Prefect downloading + storing NWS forecasts here: forecast_verification_flow/store_nws.py at main · ahuang11/forecast_verification_flow · GitHub
Prefect not only has great perks (shown in the image), but the best company culture I’ve experienced! The team truly strives to not only help the company succeed but each other (read an intern’s perspective about his onboarding experience https://www.prefect.io/…/inside-prefect-reflections-on…/) If something isn’t working, the team is open to suggestions and actually acts on them!
It’s seriously so empowering to be at Prefect! You can have first-hand experience of Prefect’s positive culture within our Slack community https://prefect.io/slack
