  • Who are we?

    Ever checked in somewhere on social media? Ever tracked your online orders?” You might be using HERE Technologies every single day without even realizing it. You can find us everywhere: in vehicles, smartphones, drones or third-party apps. We believe that with the right people, we will continue to be a game-changer in the technology industry and improve the daily lives of people around the world.

    What's the role?

    As our digital and physical lives become increasingly inter-connected, our map of the world is rapidly changing. With every connected device or sensor capable of generating and sharing its context and location, it is data that will connect this complex new world. The question is how do we make better use of that data and transform it into useful services for people and organizations – all in real-time?


    Our answer is the HERE Open Location Platform (OLP).


    In this role, you will build and enable simple, intuitive and visually elegant UI’s that will empower non-developers to leverage Machine Learning through Big Data and Analytics. This role will expand the OLP user base by enabling non-developers (especially data scientists) to build/deploy data-driven services in real-time. Through this we will reduce time to value and increase productivity of data scientists (HERE and 3rd party) by simplifying model development & deployment. Currently we are differentiating ourselves by providing a machine learning environment focused on location.
