Software Engineer, Mobile Platforms

Are you interested in helping people become better drivers and save lives? Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT) develops technology that makes roads safer through educating drivers about their driving habits and teaching them how they can improve.
CMT is seeking outstanding software engineers to join us in building technology to reliably collect and manage data from sensors on smartphones and connected devices in vehicles. As a member of the mobile team, you will work on engineering problems such as:
  • Developing software to capture and process data from on-board and external sensors and sensor platforms
  • Developing bandwidth and battery efficient algorithms to efficiently process platform specific sensor data, detect driving and other activity, and deliver sensor data to backend platforms
  • Developing new interfaces for our software development kit that partners use to develop safe driving applications
  • Developing algorithms and techniques to detect and respond to vehicle crashes and accidents in real-time 

Reliable and accurate mobile telematics
At CMT, one of our key products is our mobile software development kit (SDK). The SDK provides the mobile sensing and drive detection technology used in our mobile apps and by customers who develop their own app. You will be part of a team responsible for shaping the underlying architecture of the SDK as well as designing and implementing elegant APIs for our customers. In addition, as we add external sensors to our telematics platform, it becomes the job of the SDK to reliably interface with those sensors to fetch and process high rate sensor data. Given the resource constrained environment of the mobile phone, this can prove to be a challenging task.

Do you want to have global impact?
CMT's mobile SDK is used by millions of drivers around the world, including in the US, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Australia, and Brazil. Our users receive instant, customized feedback, making them safer drivers and lowering their insurance rates. Many of them also get real-time roadside assistance using our crash detection system.
