The world is changing in the way we consume products, from ownership to usership, and DigitalRoute is positioned in the centre of the transition. Because, when enterprises pivot to usage-based business models, they often make an unfortunate discovery. Their systems weren’t built to handle the massive data volumes and complexity that usage-based models generate. This causes them to leak revenue and respond too slowly to customer demand. DigitalRoute solves this by creating a real-time usage data layer for enterprises. Our products transform raw usage data into clear information for billing, in real time and at high scale. 

In this role you will be leading the engineering team building our flagship product: MediationZoneThe product is deployed across the globe by many large and iconic brands, in some of the most demanding environments in terms of data volumes. In addition to that it is also used in many different industries, from retail to high tech to travel as well as very heavily in telecommunications where we have our roots.  Our 2021 strategy is focused on growth as we expand our footprint in different industries through new partnerships.

  • You will constantly reassess the ways of working for the team, in conjunction with other key Engineering stakeholders: product management, quality management, release management, etc. 

Working at DigitalRoute is a fun experience, where you will be working with passionate and knowledgeable usage-based monetization nerds, that works with our customers in mind, to help to change the way we consume products and services. We believe everyone in our R&D organization (“ProdTech”) should be an opiniated technology enthusiast and advocate.
