Drift+Noise Polar Services GmbH is a start-up and spin-off company of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI). The founders look back on more than 15 years of operational experience in polar regions.
Drift+Noise is fully committed to assisting stakeholders acting in polar waters with operational ice information from models and satellites, by leveraging technology from polar research, geophysics, and remote sensing.
We are looking for early-adopters in the marine and polar market who are presently investing in the digitization of their operations. We integrate Agile and DevOps practices to ensure the high quality of our operational services; concepts such as code revision, test driven development, and continuous integration are used in our daily workflow.
Key users of our services include icebreakers like Polarstern (the German national icebreaker operated by the AWI) and Aurora Australis (chartered by the Australian Antarctic Division), expedition cruise companies such as Hapag Lloyd Cruises and Marine Technology and Engineering Organisations like the Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA).
