  • 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.


    At HERE, you will be part of the Open Location Platform Big Data Processing team that believes the value of a platform is directly related to the convenience of the platform. Our goals are to enable developers to easily conflate HERE Reality Index content with their own data using off the shelf batch or stream processing technologies and to remove the operational pains of running these data processing jobs at scale. We will achieve this by providing a self-serve Apache Spark and Apache Flink managed cloud service for developers to run their batch or stream location based data processing jobs.


    As a team member you will:

    • Write epics and user stories with acceptance criteria for the agile team backlog
    • Write user stories with sufficient detail for agile team to size
    • Manage scope and priority of backlog
    • Groom and prioritize backlog in a regular cadence
    • Review sprint and accept or reject user story completion based on acceptance criteria
    • Coordinate communications between agile team and stakeholders
    • Develop project scopes, objectives and milestones, involving all relevant stakeholders (internal and external) and ensuring technical feasibility
    • Work with program managers to communicate project statuses and identify, address and escalate potential setbacks and risks
    • Identify, track and manage risks, and escalate when necessary
    • Organize sprint and milestone demonstrations with stakeholders while providing guidance to agile teams
    • Manage inter-team dependencies to prevent impediments and foster collaboration
