You have excellent communication and negotiation skills, approach situations with a win-win stance and are a great critical thinker. It is essential that you have very strong math abilities and possess at least an upper intermediate grasp of both written and spoken English—technical reading and writing are a must.

    Qualifications & Experience

    • You are passionate about products with an insatiable appetite for perfection
    • You are the champion of great user experience and let nothing stand in-between you and a product that delights users
    • You are commercially minded and have a strong sense of the use cases and business models that lead to commercial success

    Delivering remarkable mobility experiences to solve today’s biggest connected car problems

    CloudMade is an established pioneer of location-based technologies that enable bold new user experiences, from smartphones to wearables to the connected car. In its early years, CloudMade was pioneering new ways for location services to be incorporated into websites and mobile apps, going beyond the typical concepts of maps, navigation devices, and early social media “check-in” services. Now, CloudMade works with the world's leading automotive and consumer electronics OEMs to help them deliver mobility experiences that are truly remarkable.

    CloudMade co-founder Nick Black, one of the earliest driving forces behind OpenStreetMap, and CTO Jim Brown, both work directly with the Cogniance team of end-to-end software product development experts, that span across design, architecture, development, QA, implementation, operations, and scaling.

    CloudMade

    “Cogniance is the engineering department for CloudMade,” says Black. “They are completely integrated with our in-house operations, to the extent that we have quarterly planning and brainstorming off-sites with the whole Cogniance team.” Cogniance also is involved directly in CloudMade marketing and sales opportunities, and Cogniance manages the CloudMade website.

    “CloudMade’s success depends on our ability to rapidly launch new products that deliver real value to our customers and their end-users, and to continually innovate,” says Black. “The Cogniance team provides the bridge between our business goals and the fruition of those goals.”

    Netpulse integrates technology, media and fitness into one experience, with the ultimate goal connecting, engaging and entertaining the active-lifestyle community. Some of the biggest names in commercial equipment manufacturing have chosen to align their products with the Netpulse technology, including Life Fitness, Technogym, Star Trac and Octane Fitness.

    Netpulse came to Cogniance to assist them in building the Netpulse One platform — a best-of-breed fitness application that would enable fitness clubs, trainers and active-lifestyle consumers to efficiently collect fitness data for both analysis and future access. Netpulse knew that Cogniance not only offered a multidisciplinary team across all the expertise required but also had the passion needed to bring this concept into fruition. Additionally, the Cogniance team jumped at the opportunity to play a part in building innovative technology that they knew would allow them to directly benefit people’s lives.

    Netpulse

    “We chose to work with Cogniance because of their stellar reputation and their talents across all the technologies that we required to realize the Netpulse One platform.

    Their dedication and passion for the project was beyond what I expected and our work together can only be defined as a partnership”

    —John Ford, Co-CEO, Netpulse, Inc.

    The Netpulse-Cogniance partnership started at the very beginning with the elaboration phase, where we held an extensive session to discover the needs of our customer and subsequently carry out the information architecture and design. Understanding their business goals allowed us to plan and effectively execute the engineering phase of the project — J2EE backend, AngularJS rich web application, ObjectiveC and Java native mobile apps for iOS and Android respectively. The platform was built to collect information via native integration with the C++/QT and Android based consoles on cardio equipment, as well as with 3rd party integrations with devices and apps like Fitbit and Runkeeper. We also provided QA, Product management and Project management services to ensure an on-time, on-budget and on-spec delivery.

    The completed Netpulse One platform is a comprehensive digital solution that provides users with an interactive, immersive on-the-go club-branded experience. We capture the data from all of the clubs’ cardio equipment and interface with third-party apps and tracking devices to seamlessly integrate them into the club’s ecosystem. Netpulse One keeps each club at the center of their users’ fitness experience with tools like goal setting, workout tracking and fitness challenges that drive club engagement and support their users’ dynamic lifestyles. Participating clubs are provided with a club-branded website, a club-branded mobile app, digital signage and a single user ID that works across all of the clubs’ cardio equipment. Together, Cogniance and Netpulse have created the Netpulse One platform that truly represents a synergy between technology and the active lifestyle.

    Leveraging your smartphone to become a smarter drinker

    Alcohoot is redefining what our mobile devices can do and has developed the world's first smartphone breathalyzer device. According to Alcohoot Chief Product Officer, Jonathan Ofir, their device aims to address a serious gap in the market by promoting smart drinking with an appealing solution that seamlessly integrates with users' highly mobile social lifestyles. The two main goals of their Alcohoot device are: reduce the number of drunk driving accidents in the world and make breathalyzers an instrument that is socially acceptable to use in everyday situations.

    Alcohoot approached Cogniance to utilize our expertise with embedded technology to connect their breathalyzer device with smartphones. Specifically, Cogniance was responsible for developing a complementary mobile application that would act as an essential bridge between the hardware device and users' highly mobile lifestyles. As clearly stated by Jonathan, 'It was important for us to create a product that enhanced the user's drinking experience.'

    Alcohoot

    The Cogniance team was excited to play a role in realizing this innovative idea and we provided our skills and expertise in the following areas: project management, software engineering and QA. In order to develop a mobile app that would connect to this hardware device we had to overcome the challenge of decoding and encoding algorithms that would both transmit and accept binary data from mobile device headphone output and input. In addition, we provided integration with third-party Google Maps and Google places API to allow for easy navigation to nearby restaurants and access to UBER taxi services.

    The completed Alcohoot mobile application has gained top ratings on both App stores and recognition from top publications including Forbes, The New York Times and TechCrunch. Users are able to track and find trends in their drinking consumption patterns, call a taxi with one touch and easily locate open restaurants within walking distance.

    In order to implement the new Client Portal, the Cogniance team worked with Tongal through several stages, starting with Elaboration, where we reviewed the current website UI and outlined the project scope.
