Vacancy Application Manager Data Market

To exchange any kind of data between data-suppliers and -consumers, Civity is building a Data Market. A Data Market helps data suppliers to expose their data to consumers with the appropriate access rights. Offering more valuable data, makes it easier for developers to create new smart city applications and solutions. So called API-management is an important part of the Data Market.

About Civity

At Civity we are fascinated by the “smart city” and the possibilities of data in solving urban issues. We find technology interesting, but it must always be at the service of residents, businesses and visitors to the city. We are curious about new solutions, possibilities and partners. We learn every day and want to improve continuously.

The core of our offering is the City Innovation platform, a solution for collecting, managing and accessing data. In addition, we have developed some solutions ourselves. Such as “Slim Melden” (Smart Reporting), an integrated solution for reporting on public spaces; ”Snuffelfiets” (Sniffer Bike), a solution in which we use mobile sensors to measure bicycle routes, air quality and road condition; and Dataplatform, a portal to publish data for consumers.

Developing meaningful stories based on data – that is our goal.
