job summary:

Overview:

As our digital and physical lives become increasingly inter-connected, our map of the world is rapidly changing. With every connected device or sensor capable of generating and sharing its context and location, it is data that will connect this complex new world. The question is how do we make better use of that data and transform it into useful services for people and organizations - all in real-time?

Our answer is the Client Open Location Platform.

The Open Location Platform Core Services team believes the value of a platform is directly related to the quality of our software. At client, our philosophy is build it, break it and then rebuild it better. We are seeking a talented Software Developer/Engineer to work on the OLP initiative.
