    HERE has placed the development of an Open Location Platform (OLP) as a central building block of its strategy.

HERE is looking for a Principal Architect to lead the Design and Development of Infrastructure Services of OLP. Infrastructure Services provide the foundation for a highly resilient, scalable multi-tenant platform based on kubernetes.
