What We Do

Solutions Architects (SA) are technical and business experts who partner with customers to help them design solutions to location problems from live asset tracking, to data visualization and in-car navigation.

Each SA has an area of technical expertise - mobile, cloud, or web. For this role, we’re looking for a Solutions Architect with expertise in mobile development (Android or iOS). The Principal SA will work with our largest logistics, automotive, and consumer application customers to architect simple solutions to complex location problems.

  • Demonstrated experience solving large, complex customer problems in a consultative fashion.

  • A strong communicator, both written and verbal, who is comfortable explaining complex concepts and architectures to audiences from developers to senior decision makers.
