Meet your team

We develop features for a High-Definition map (HDMap), which involves multiple backend and frontend applications. This offer is focused more on the backend part, but you would be welcome to participate in frontend development if you wish. Our backend is an automated data factory, handling ingestion of raw data, tracking the statuses of items in the pipeline and more. On the frontend side, we create visual editors for annotating and editing road elements, as well as dashboards and other tools for monitoring and controlling this process. We use technologies like Scala, ZIO, Http4s, Kafka, as well as Typescript + React/Vue. We are a DevOps team with a flat hierarchy where each member has the right to deploy to production and is responsible for the health of the services. We have the right to choose the technologies and design the architecture on our own. Continuous improvement is particularly important to us, so we take time learning modern technologies, doing workshops, and sharing knowledge.

Achieve more

We are self-starters who play well with others. Every day, we solve new problems with creativity, meet new people and learn rapidly at our offices around the world. We will invest in your growth and are committed to supporting you. In everything we do, we’re guided by six values: We care, putting our heart into what we do; we build trust (you can count on us); we create – it’s how we make a difference; we are confident, but don’t boast; we keep it simple because life is complex enough; and we have fun because life’s too short to be boring.
