Reports To

Platform Team Lead

Work Environment

The activities will take place within the ‘Data Delivery Service’ (DDS) department. The DDS activities comprise the development of software that is used to convert digital geographic data to the so-called NDS navigation database format and some other database formats. The input data can originate from local suppliers in one country, or from global parties such as HERE Technologies or TomTom Licensing.

The software tools are used by the ‘Production & Operations’ department to create the products for our customers. Products include maps for embedded navigation systems, ADAS maps and maps that are used for autonomous driving.

Within the DDS department, the Platform team creates and maintains common libraries, generic conversion tools and frameworks that are used by other teams to build their software products.

Work Description

You will be working on the development and maintenance of generic software components that are used by the map compilers of various NDS customer projects. Additionally, you will create complete components that are run as part of the conversions in those projects.

You will refactor existing frameworks to transition tools to microservices architectures, while those tools are used in active projects.

The software is complex. You will need knowledge of software engineering practices, develop knowledge of the NDS database and a broad understanding of the behaviour and limitations of the different software components.

Besides developing, documenting and testing your own code, reviewing the work of colleagues and problem solving also belongs to your responsibilities.

You will work in an agile environment and be part of a scrum team.
