Employment Opportunities

Various employment opportunities are available at Mount Washington Observatory, both on and off the mountain. Our staffed facilities include our legendary weather station and Mount Washington Museum on the summit of Mount Washington, and our Weather Discovery Center museum and administrative offices in downtown North Conway.

Summit positions require an eight-day shift on the mountain followed by six days off, while most valley positions follow a more typical Monday through Friday work week. In addition to full-time staff positions, we often have part-time and seasonal volunteer and/or intern opportunities.

Current openings, if any, are listed below. Thank you for your interest in working with us!

Staff Positions

Chief Operating Officer (COO)
Mount Washington Observatory is embarking upon a bold growth initiative in an effort to expand capacity, strengthen the business, and broaden the impact of its work in climate research and science education.

The centerpiece of the growth initiative is the creation of a new Chief Operating Officer (COO) position. Reporting to and in partnership with the Executive Director (ED), the Chief Operating Officer leads MWO's internal affairs, providing highly productive and effective day-to-day operational management of the organization while the ED transitions to a primarily external-facing role, focusing on overall strategy, major gifts fundraising, partnership-building, new business opportunities and corporate support. The ED provides guidance and direction for the organization to ensure consistency with MWO's vision, mission, and values, while the COO provides the leadership, management, and oversight necessary to ensure that the organization has a vibrant culture, strong planning and operational procedures, proper financial controls, solid administrative and reporting procedures, and human resource systems in place to accomplish its goals.
