Hydrocomp, Inc.

Hydrocomp, Inc. develops and distributes continuous hydrologic simulation software (HFAM) and provides consulting, specializing in hydrologic modeling and analysis. Our goal is to provide innovative methods for the management of water resources.

Hydrocomp has its origins in research on mathematical modeling of hydrologic processes at Stanford University . In the past thirty-five years, Hydrocomp has developed several widely used modeling systems, including the Hydrologic Simulation Program-Fortran (HSPF).

Recent work in model development has created graphical, interactive systems for water resource management. Hydrocomp's Forecast and Analysis Modeling System (HFAM) makes streamflow forecasting and analysis of reservoir operations easy for operators and planners. Hydrocomp conducts workshops and seminars on its models that hundreds of professionals have attended.

In addition to model development, Hydrocomp conducts detailed water resource investigations in particular basins and has over four decades of experience in modeling analysis. Hydrocomp has completed projects throughout the United States and Canada , and in South America, Europe, Africa and Asia . Areas of expertise include streamflow simulation and forecasting, probable maximum floods, and analysis of surface and groundwater resources, reservoir reliability, and the impacts of land management practices on streamflow and water quality.

Position Open: Engineer–Hydrologist sought by Hydrocomp, Inc. in Menlo Park, California to develop HFAM watershed and reservoir simulation and POP hydropower optimization models; develop applications of HSPF and public domain watershed and reservoir models to analyze floods, surface and groundwater resources, reservoir reliability, and the impacts of reservoir operations on streamflow and water quality; perform inflow forecasting for water supply, irrigation, flooding and power optimization; spreadsheet and geographic information system (GIS) analysis of water resources systems; develop custom software code for watershed and reservoir simulation using Delphi and Visual Basic programming languages; utilize linear and dynamic programming software to optimize operational management of water resources systems; develop and document custom water resources software; provide technical support and training for water resources specialists. This position permits telecommuting.

Requires Master's or foreign equivalent degree in Civil Engineering, Hydrology or related field, and two (2) years of experience in the job offered or related engineering position. Experience must include spreadsheet analysis of water resources systems; developing custom software code for watershed and reservoir simulation using Visual Basic programming language; and utilizing linear and dynamic programming software for operational management of water resources systems.
