Will You Find Ways Where No Ways Are?

Software Engineer/Data Specialist (m/f/d)

You don’t need to have participated in the Dakar Rally and you don’t need to know how to replace the radiator grill of a Land Rover Defender – but some love for adventure, trips into remote regions and crazy vehicles would be nice to have.

As a Software Engineer / Data Specialist you hold a university degree in computer science, geo informatics, data science or any comparable field of study. You have experience in database systems (SQL, Postgres, Redis, MongoDB), you have worked with various types of Open Data and Geo-spatial Data (OpenStreetMap, Wikidata, Copernicus, Landsat) and you know criteria to quantify data quality. You develop APIs in Python and you know methods to analyse and visualize big data.

You are used to work in agile teams using Scrum or Kanban and besides all the buzzwords your English is fluent and you speak some decent German.

At Bareways you will acquire new data sources, you will fusion them with existing maps and earth observation data and you will design processes, database architectures and interfaces for a cloud-based navigation service.

You will have flexible working hours of in total 40 hours per week – and in the unlikely event of a night shift, we will adequately compensate that with free time. And if you ever require some extra time for your children, family or a trip around the world, we will find an appropriate working time model for you.

We at Bareways are building navigation services that operate under all weather and road conditions and provide attractive routes tailored for each vehicle. We love cool maps, we are fascinated by what can be learned from weather and satellite data and we want to bring advanced mobility services to all those regions & roads in the world that have been neglected up to now. Safety and sustainability are key values as well as adventure and fun.

Our offices are located on a technology campus in Lübeck, Germany – with a big park next door for lunch breaks, sport activities or a joint barbecue.

Caution! If you only look for startup experience to pimp your CV, relaxed working hours or chatting about the last road trip, we might not be the perfect fit for you. We are building products that need to fulfil highest automotive quality standards; our customers shall count on the reliability of our technology especially at the end of the world when everything else fails. We want to take these challenges with an innovative mindset and seriousness.

If you are interested in this adventure, if you want to grow with a young startup, if you are not afraid of making mistakes, and if you are willing to take new barely visible ways – come and join us.
