The Team:

At Arity, our Geospatial Data Science team is a fundamental and key differentiating component of Arity's strategic vision, making transportation smarter, safer, and more useful for everyone. Not only do we know how to analyze and find meaning within billions of miles of driving data collected from smartphones, onboard devices and third parties, but we are passionate about how it affects the end-users of our products. On our team, people get the opportunity to build scalable distributed data pipelines to efficiently extract innovative insights from raw GPS and contextual data, enhance applications from enriched geospatial layers on a large scale, and create eye-opening data visualization. By leveraging our state-of-the-art algorithms, cost-effective platform, and easily accessible micro-services, we can quickly turn geospatial data into actionable insights. This team is also fully integrated within a cross-functional scrum team including product owners, software engineers, and other talents to collaborate with for creating innovative products.

You will personally lead the solution development for these projects and work with product owners, data/software engineers, and other partners for productionization and client delivery. Some example projects include:

  • Efficiently route match raw GPS data
  • Extract geographically relevant mobility patterns from users
  • Derive driving contextual information based on driving environment
  • Build nation-wide risk map
  • Geospatial modeling of traffic data

These geospatial insights help us understand transportation and the risk of behaviors on the road. You will also help shape and grow our culture we have worked hard to establish – promoting recognition of good work, continuous learning, winning together, and having fun along the way.
