Mobility Analytics Director

  • Job ID: 2024-05
  • Location: Madrid, Spain
  • Job Type: Full time

The planning and management of transport infrastructures and services requires accurate, reliable and updated information about the mobility patterns of the population. In recent years, the pervasive use of geolocated devices in our daily activities has enabled new forms of collecting this information. The abundance of data opens exciting opportunities, but it also requires the development of advanced methods and algorithms for the analysis and fusion of heterogeneous data sources, including data from mobile network operators, GPS traces, ticketing systems and traffic counts.

Over the past decade, Nommon has been a pioneer in the application of big data to travel behaviour analysis. Since its creation in 2015, our Mobility Analytics business unit has developed a variety of cutting-edge solutions that mine and analyse anonymised geolocation data from mobile devices and blend them with other data provided by our clients or available from public databases to provide high-quality trip matrices and other mobility indicators. An ambitious research and development strategy has put Nommon at the forefront of innovation in the mobility analytics market and has led to continuous growth.

As part of our expansion plans, driven by internationalisation and product scalability, we are looking for an experienced professional (+15 years’ experience) to lead Nommon’s Mobility Analytics Business Unit.
