RHEA Group is looking for an extremely talented and creative UI Developer to work on a really exciting and new project. You will be based in our offices located at the Harwell Campus area close to Oxford.

About the project

Weather-related extreme events not only have a negative impact on food security and supply, they also affect the income of households working in the agriculture sector. The UK Space Agency and a consortium led by RHEA Group have joined forces with the Ugandan Ministry of Water and Environment and local NGOs to develop a Drought and Flood Mitigation Service (DFMS) that will help Ugandan farmers respond to effects in agriculture effectively.

The DFMS will use satellite- and ground-based data combined with drought and flood models to produce and share better forecasts for the management of water resources. Unlike the current weather forecasts, DFMS provides local prediction, with a parish level detail, ensuring more specific and accurate data.
