About the employer
This company is a market share leader in a high growth, competitive tech market. They created the field of vehicle telematics 20 years ago, and have recently launched an aggressive growth strategy that entails a significant investment in talent.
They deliver SaaS solutions that measure and report real-time data from vehicles. These solutions help clients drive significant operational improvements: reducing fuel consumption, increasing vehicle utilisation (which reduces the number of vehicles on the road), and improving the safety and productivity of their staff.
