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.

    What you’ll do

    • Work on tooling related to automated map making, not limited to implementation work but as well data analysis, design and deployment
    • Devise innovative ideas for solving problems and translate these ideas into technical designs
    • Be a contributor to our system architecture, able to prototype proposed solutions whilst giving support to the architect
    • Be the go-to person to give advice, on software development and proof of concepts, in and outside the team. Place your stamp on the team through the mentoring of more junior Software Engineers
    • Design, implement and maintain state-of-the-art algorithms in Java
    • Work on the automation of data handling and data structures
    • You will dive into the pile of metadata we gathered on our processes and write tooling to gather insights
    • Use those insights to make recommendations to streamline the process
    • Mentoring less experienced team members, working together on topics is something you feel comfortable with
    What you’ll need
    • University degree in computer science or equivalent
    • 8+ years of experience in complex software development
    • You have solid experience with object-oriented programming languages and impressive coding skills
    • You are willing to work with Java and upskill your Java background
      We are a problem solving company and prefer using the right tool for the job at hand, without restricting us to one language (e.g. machine learning applications typically done in Python)
    • Experience with automated deployment and testing techniques and tools (e.g. Kubernetes)
    • Knowledge of Cloud computing (e.g. Azure) or Big Data (e.g. Spark)
    • Never-ending curiosity: technologies, paradigms and clean code
    • Good knowledge of design patterns and clean code principles
    • You enjoy working as part of a self-organizing team, keeping the focus on the team goals.
    • Excellent communication skills, giving constructive feedback
    What’s nice to have
    • Agile thinking
    • Pro-active, pragmatic attitude: building solutions over writing papers
    • Interest in or experience with data science / machine learning
    • Being familiar with mapping/GIS principles is a plus
