  • Who are we?

    “Ever checked in somewhere on social media? Ever tracked your online orders?” You might be using HERE every day without even realizing it. You can find us everywhere: in vehicles, smartphones, drones or third-party apps. And we’re not stopping there. We are evolving what used to be thought of as a map, into a real-time, 3D, digital representation of the world that will help us achieve our vision of enabling an Autonomous World for everyone.


    We are looking for a passionate Engineering Manager  (SCALA, AWS, REST services, SQL) -  (m/f) for our Frankfurt team to help us build the next generation of HERE’s automated core map data processing environments.


    The Team


    You will lead an Agile pod team that is developing tools to source map content in an efficient, scalable and highly automated manner to generate and maintain the freshest and most relevant map. For that you will be translating product strategies into technology strategies, leading the long-term architectural direction and helping your team design and build industry-grade customer-facing geo-data-intensive products. 


    Your Mission


    As an Engineering Manager in the content and crowd-sourcing unit you will lead a team of highly skilled engineers and will work closely with other engineering & operations teams as well as internal and external users of the tool chains your team develops and operates. Partnering with product managers and the larger mapping business units, your team is charged with the mission to develop smart content sourcing tools for the state-of-the-art Mapping Technologies at HERE, driving forward our objective of becoming a leading, data-driven, location technology company.


    So are you passionate about building software that matters? About map data and the spatial domain? Are you eager to apply your leadership and software engineering prowess to solving “spatial” problems? Do you thrive on seeing your team’s code become well-running production tool? Then join our team and take on this unique opportunity to build solutions that move map making and map data processing to the next level.
