Jan 31st 2019
Interested in mobility? Looking for a job in which your technical skills come into play? Read on! Optimile is looking for a software engineer for our intermodal routing engine with expertise in Java/Python.
What we do?
Optimile is a software company offering Mobility-as-a-Service. Mobility-as-a-Service has become the new way of transportation. Our aim is to build bridges between different mobility operators and end-users, so that everyone can enjoy the ultimate freedom of planning, booking and paying different transportation modes through one single gateway.
This is our response to the shift away from personally owned means of transportation towards mobility solutions that are consumed as a service. Therefore we develop our own white-label mobility platforms and establish partnerships with all kinds of mobility operators.
To guide mobility users during their trip, we have created our own route planner. This route planner combines different means of transport to get to your destination point. It uses a set of parameters (e.g. cost of the route, ecological footprint of the route, weather, time…) to provide you with the optimal mobility solution.
What will your days look like?
Together with your enthusiastic colleagues you will develop further on our route planner. This way we can always offer the user a tailor-made mobility solution.
