At HERE, we have always believed that maps are the key to making sense of the world. It is our goal to help people live delightful, safer, more fruitful, and more sustainable lives while respecting their privacy.
HERE has placed the development of an Open Location Platform (OLP) as a central building block of its strategy. Development of this platform will be driven by three functions, Product, Engineering and Architecture. HERE is looking for a Principal Architect to lead the Design and Development of Core Services of OLP. Core Services provide the foundation for running complex data pipelines at scale through data management, processing and distribution services and APIs.
The responsibility of the Principal Architect role is to drive success of the OLP (Open Location Platform) effort through driving deliberate, clear, and consistent software and system design, implementation and validation. The Senior Architect is the technical lead for the teams and services he or she works on. This demands a hands-on pragmatic approach and an analytical mind-set with a sound theoretical basis. A background in developing complex systems, new products or platforms and technology is essential for the candidate to be able to successfully lead the architecture work in the new platform.
