Updated: Official response says Job postings only for SDK development.

HERE-portfolio

Update:

Pino, from Nokia has let us know by leaving a comment that these job postings are for SDK development only.

Hi guys, just to clarify, a mobile SDK is not an app. We are providing tools to our partners so that they can build apps with our maps. We already announced this on our blog (HERE Three Sixty) and you can already see some action: Amazon is using our maps in their Kindle Fire, Deutsche Telekom is using our maps for their Arrival Control app on iOS and Android.

In my POV article about native HERE apps for other platforms, I also shared a tip received by us that Nokia may be planning to release iOS and Android native apps for major platforms iOS and Android. Well, it seems our tipster was right after all. Two recent job postings by HERE reveal requirement of iOS and Android developer in HERE’s team. See, what one of the job requirements titled “Software Engineer – Mobile” tells about nature of the Job,

As an Android / iOS developer you will be a key member of our growing mobile engineering team, developing industry-leading mobile SDKs / applications. This is an experienced position that requires fluency in the latest Java capabilities and improvements in the Android and iOS  SDK. The ideal candidate is motivated to explore and deliver the best possible solutions to our customers

The ideal candidate will have experience shipping one or more Android / iOS apps, currently on Google Play / Apple Store. You should have a strong passion for technology as evidenced by your personal projects that demonstrate your aptitude for superior engineering and strong customer-centric product sense. You should enjoy working outside the comfort zone and love to learn new technologies. The position will be based in Berlin / Frankfurt and will report to the Tem Lead Development team Mobile SKDs for Business, HERE Platform for Business.

Second job posting is more explicit and is for “Mobile Developer (Android), HERE Crowd Mapping”.

We are now looking for a Mobile App Developer (Android) to join our team.

 In this role, you will be responsible for:

  • Working directly with developers, product management and UX Design to conceptualize, build, test and deliver mobile products
  • Deliver across the entire app life cycle –concept, design, build, deploy, test, release to app stores and support
  • Build prototypes at tech scoping stage of projects
  • Working along the web developers to create and maintain a robust framework to support the apps
  • Working with the front end developers to build the interface with focus on usability features
  • Keep up to date on the latest industry trends in the mobile technologies
  • Explain technologies and solutions to technical and non-technical stakeholders

And as per the job requirements posted above, it does look like that Nokia may be planning an apps suite rather than standalone mapping apps for both iOS and Android. Bring it on, Nokia!!

      Hey Pino, welcome to the Blog!! Great to see your comment here 🙂 . We did cover the iOS and Android SDK for business related news, but now when Nokia has the freedom to release competitive offerings to all smartphone operating systems, I think it makes lots of sense to tap two of the largest platform. So, it will be really sad to hear that you guys are not planning native apps for iOS and Android 🙁 .

    You were right again about HERE Maps, as you were about the Nokia X!

    Will be great to have this app on my Newkia phone in the future 🙂
