EMBERS (http://embers.city/ ) is a EU-funded project under the Horizon 2020 program. The core of the project is to innovate on a smart cities mobility platform, commonly referred to as the Mobility Back-end as a Service Platform (MBaaS), and to prepare it for market readiness. The UPMC, who is coordinating the project since November 2015, is looking for a mobile/web app developer that implements a prototype solution (either mobile/web app) while using the underlying MBaaS platform in order to access mobility data provided by a city. The MBaaS consists of information technology services that support urban mobility systems. Examples of data that are fed to the MBaaS by these systems include: the real time location of buses, trams, metros, delivery vehicles, and waste haulage vehicles; vehicular traffic volumes as measured by sensors throughout a city; the presence or absence of vehicles in parking spaces; and air pollution measurements at various locations in a city. The MBaaS can be queried for these data, either directly, or combined, or filtered; thanks to a built-in route calculation, engine it can calculate routes for journeys through a city, including multimodal journeys. The basic idea of EMBERS' MBaaS is to serve as an abstraction layer between cities and developers, a layer that hides the technological complexity for (1) cities to easily integrate data of any kind and any sources (historical data, real-time data, data directly from devices/sensors) onto the platform to make it accessible, and for (2) developers to easily access this data and integrate it with the help of the provided API that allows them to fully focus on the challenge and how to solve it. This eases the collaboration between cities and developers on the development of new innovative mobility solutions. As a mobile/web developer you will be working on various tasks that are in the area of Smart City / Smart Mobility. This might also include to be in charge of developing and implementing a web and/or mobile application on top of the MBaaS platform. The application would then integrate city mobility data via the EMBERS API and solve an interesting challenge. You will also work in collaboration with our partners at EMBERS and potentially cities, in order to actively contribute to the success and final phase of the EMBERS project, by advancing the development of the MBaaS platform or by developing a mobile/web app that will serve as valuable demonstrator/prototype for that platform. You will have considerable autonomy in determining development directions for the mobile/web app, including the choice of language (mobile app, native Android/iOS, or using hybrid frameworks), webservice API (it currently has a RESTful API), and database technology (if needed). You will create a documentation and potentially tutorials to support the partners who might continue with your development. The position is to work fully in English. As we are in a French-speaking environment, basic knowledge of French would be very beneficial.
