What You Will Be Doing

Join us as a Senior Back-End Engineer of Vehicle Telematics team and spearhead the development of our stateless vehicle data processing system. This cutting-edge project involves the consumption of binary data via Kafka, translating it into actionable vehicle model parameters, and building comprehensive analyses on top of the raw data. You'll be tasked with designing systems that efficiently store and serve this processed data, either live via WebSocket or on-demand via API.

Leveraging your expertise and experience, you'll lead our efforts to create next-generation software solutions. While experience with NodeJS is advantageous for navigating our existing infrastructure, your focus will be on harnessing the power of Kotlin and Spring Boot to push the boundaries of what our technology can achieve.

Embedded within a SCRUM team—comprised of four developers, a data scientist, alongside close collaboration with our Product Manager and UX designer —you'll thrive in an environment that champions autonomy and innovative problem-solving. You'll have the freedom to tackle challenges head-on, from resolving service alerts from the monitoring system to architecting solutions that shape the future of e-mobility.

This role is not just about coding; it is about making a significant impact on the future of e-mobility, with the autonomy to lead projects and the support to grow as a technical expert.
