  • The outcome of your work includes an end to end system design that is supported and committed by all stakeholders i.e. the Automotive customer, TomTom product managers, architects, sales teams and others;

  • You understand and can draw from experience in addressing the key challenges that come with delivering system architectures. For instance, you can show how to decouple subcomponents without losing overall system integrity; 

  • Good understanding of cloud developments, DevOps methodology and cloud principles overall;
