And together, we help the automotive industry, businesses, developers, drivers, citizens, and cities move towards a safe, autonomous world that is free of congestion and emissions.

  • Contribute to a map production system that handles terabytes of data and runs on large computing clouds.
  • That’s quite a lot but don’t worry, you will work in an environment in which we support each other. As a member of the Scrum team, you will get support, training, and time to get into the project.
What you’ll need
  • Knowledge of Java and object-oriented design principles.
  • Knowledge of software engineering practices, including unit & integration testing, version control, continuous integration, release building.
  • Ability to work on varying topics in a lively, fast-changing agile/scrum environment.
  • Eagerness to learn and to get acquainted with a broad range of technologies and a diverse software stack in a short timeframe as well as focus on ‘getting things done’ and ensuring good quality.
  • Willingness to work in a self-organizing scrum team, in which you contribute to diverse tasks (development, testing, supporting users, bug fixing, etc.).
  • Good knowledge of automated testing techniques and tools and experience with CI.
  • Good command of English both spoken and written.
  • We are looking for candidates with different levels of seniority (from Regular to Expert).
What’s nice to have
  • Experience in open source and open map data technologies and products.
  • Experience with car navigation software design and runtime map formats.
