In the "Mobilize" team of the Smart Cities division, we are building a data-driven platform that uses state-of-the-art Deep Learning models to generate traffic predictions.

In the future, this platform will evolve into a data hub where AI models and data of different domains can be joined and can be used by our customers. Visualization of complex big data sets on maps and interaction with that data are the core of our product, so to help us further build this platform, we are looking for a product owner / functional analyst) to join our team of data scientists & developers. Your tasks will be:

  • You work in close collaboration with the product manager and UX experts to translate the product vision and long-term roadmap into product functionalities and concrete goals for the development team.
  • As a product owner, you are responsible for managing the priorities for the entire development team on a per-sprint level & prepare/perform the sprint planning.

  • Backend: C#, ASP.NET Core, Azure Functions, SQL Server, Azure Blob Storage, XUnit, MS Testing Framework, Python
  • AI Models: in Python, using PyTorch
  • Cloud-based, completely running in Microsoft Azure

What you need to succeed:

  • You have an interest in big data & AI applications, and are curious to learn more about how they are applied in the mobility domain.
  • Prior experience in the mobility domain is a plus, but the eagerness to learn about traffic modelling and the needs of our customer is a minimal requirement.
  • You like working in an agile environment and have prior experience as a functional analyst or product owner.
  • You are not afraid to take decisions for implementational choices in the development teams, in alignment with the product vision.
  • You want to contribute in shaping our product, and are not afraid to discuss with our analysts and graphical designers to build an excellent and easy-to-use interface

What are we offering:

  • We offer you a role in an international (Hasselt BE & Bucharest RO), multi-disciplinary & highly-skilled team, where creativity & new ideas are highly valued and where we are continuously trying to push the edge of what is possible with artificial intelligence and big data when building mobility platforms.
  • Teamwork in an open and dynamic atmosphere with room for new, fresh ideas and initiatives. 
  • You will be working in an enthusiastic team with a lot of expertise in business intelligence, data analysis, data science, data governance and data engineering. 
  • You will have the opportunity to work on challenging assignments for renowned clients.
