Overview

HERE enables people, enterprises and cities around the world to harness the power of location and create innovative solutions that make our lives safer and more efficient. We transform information from devices, vehicles, infrastructure and other sources into real-time location services that play a key role in how we move, live and interact with one another.

Maps remain at the heart of the HERE mission. But what we are building today is, of course, very different from our earliest maps. We’ve evolved from static visualizations to cloud-enabled, live representations of a world in constant motion. With the backing of leading automotive companies, we are ready to deliver the next generation of mobility and location-based services for companies big and small.

 

HERE is packed with smart people from around the world. Our offices foster an open environment where good ideas are encouraged and embraced. There’s also plenty of flexibility within the company, and options for achieving an ideal work/life balance and various other extras on offer.

 

We are looking for a passionate Front-end Engineer to help us build a next generation mapping experience for our end-users. You will be developing the UI that will serve as the entry point to this new experience. You will be involved in a team that is designing a new experience for our mapping tools and will be consistently challenged to produce a UI that is as simple as it can be yet sophisticated enough to help our end-users accomplish complex mapping tasks. Join our team and take on this unique opportunity to build an experience that can meaningfully impact and transform the way our end users do their job.

Responsibilities

What You'll Be Doing?

 

  • Design, develop and optimize the new UI from the grounds up for our end-users 
  • Work closely with our UX team to implement best practices in UX 
  • Work closely with the full stack engineers on the team to refine and help design the correct APIs required by the UI 
  • Work with other engineering teams and internal customers to identify new opportunities, address critical needs, and solve complex problems using your skills in design simple yet sophisticated UIs 
  • Become an expert at leveraging internal platform resources and APIs

What You'll Bring?

 

  • Passion for building software that matters
  • Belief in reimagining and redefining the world through software that is elegant and simple
  • An obsession for discovering and solving customer issues
  • Self starter, able to drive results
  • Open to new challenges, willing to learn, and thrive in an environment where problems are open-ended
  • A  "guru" in HTML5, CSS3/SCSS and JavaScript and have experience in building front-end heavy applications
  • A  strong background in well-known JavaScript frameworks (React, Angular, D3, jQuery etc.) 
  • Experience designing UIs that react to data being pushed (web sockets, socket.io, etc.) as well as traditional designs
