Cyclomedia is global market leader in high-quality geospatial data collection and analysis. To enable their ambitious growth plans, they are hiring an experienced Head of Core Products to develop a cutting edge product portfolio as well as continue growing their team of Product Managers.
Geospatial is a true life-saver to help local governments, telecom, architecture and engineering firms, utilities and more to efficiently and effectively run their operations. They use it for a variety of reasons, from monitoring assets in the public space to preparing a new building location. Cyclomedia’s large-scale, systematic vizualisations and LiDAR point clouds bring the outside world to the screen in the finest detail.
Municipal governments can offer more effective enforcement on misuse of public space, as well as achieve more efficient value estimates for real estate taxation. For utility companies, Cyclomedia’s visualization helps to locate the source of an outage and plan repair work as non-invasive as possible. For large infrastructure projects, Cyclomedia can help to precisely map the situation onsite. The list of potential applications and clients is extensive and the company offers unique possibilities to create smart and green cities that are equipped for the future.
Cyclomedia collects this data through its global fleet of more than 60 camera-outfitted cars. The data is then uploaded to their Street Smart platform, which clients can accessed directly. Cyclomedia’s specialists also continuously perform analyses, creating insightful visualizations with actionable information.
Meanwhile, the company is working on new product initiatives, such as the Street Hive: a solution where clients use their own car fleet equipped with Cyclomedia’s plug-and-play recorder that allows customers to create actionable insights as needed.
