At HERE TECHNOLOGIES, we are inventing the future.


As early pioneers in digital mapping, we have always set out to chart the uncharted. While we continue to navigate an ever-changing landscape, we are both responsive to emerging technologies and welcoming of new ideas. In this space we foster curiosity, and act with integrity and courage to create extraordinary things. And we do this as one team moving forward together.


There has never been a tipping point quite like this. A new digital era, where the human race and technology fundamentally reconfigure their relationship to empower every aspect of our surroundings. Where we go from ride-sharing to self-driving. From street maps to an index of reality. Welcome to the autonomous world.


You can be a part of this new world with a career at HERE TECHNOLOGIES.


Our CTO team is a mix of hard core data scientists, system and platform architects, researchers, principal engineers, analysts and BI geeks. Our mission spans all platforms across Automotive, Highly Autonomous Driving (HAD) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) in combination with new and emerging technology fields like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), Deep Neural Networks, closed-loop Machine Learning and Geo-positioning to name just a few. Our team members are technology evangelists, able to inspire inside as well as outside of HERE for the vision of the company, and are innovating key intellectual property concepts such as the Reality Index and the associated location based services that are at the foundation of the business models within the Digital century. 


Our CTO organization is seeking a highly motivated Prototyping Engineer to join our team. This is a unique opportunity to become part of the group leading the way to this autonomous future.
