We transform how industries and communities generate value from data by enabling successful data ecosystems.

The cornerstone of our solutions is to make data accessible, useable, and useful, by exploiting open standards together.

While many industries and communities benefit from our approach and product, we focus on building the European Green Data space. Our vision is to provide the data infrastructure that enables Europe to achieve a sustainable, climate neutral industry and society.

Towards this goal, we already support more than 1.000 organisations in implementing the INSPIRE standards, a set of specifications for the delivery of spatial, environmental and statistical data.

In this role, you will work mostly on our Open Source Data Harmonisation product hale studio. Work on hale studio includes both truly innovative capabilities such as AI-based data transformation, but also on incremental features that the community would really like to have. In addition, you may contribute to the back-end development of our cloud infrastructure hale connect.

Join us – wherever you are based – and be a cornerstone of the team!

We support exceptional applicants from outside the EU.
