Trondheim, Norway
Apply now

We have a lot of exciting tasks ahead of us, and therefore need to further strengthen our software engineering department inline with company expansion and operations.

We create maps in a semi-automated process with the raw floor plans as input, and output a leaner and visually pleasing map where we have identified the rooms, doors, and various points of interest. These maps are the base product that allows us to provide useful features like path finding, booking of meeting rooms / desks / hotel rooms, resource management, etc. These maps help users navigate complex campuses all around the world.

In 2018, we helped 1.5 million users in a month find their way. Last year, this number hit 3 million! At the forefront of our work, the tools that produce the maps will be made more efficient through a more efficient user interface and an even greater degree of automation. Machine learning will play a vital role in helping to achieve this. We need to keep improving the positioning experience with increased accuracy, and of course continue to improve on the general user experience.

Last, but not least, we also have a broad range of complex features to deliver, so if you are up for a challenge, continue reading.
