"We create software solutions with our innovative mobile and wearable devices."

Backend Performance Engineer
The Platform Team is responsible of building and supporting the server backend to gather all of UP user data, store it efficiently, and then expose it back via our mobile clients. This data is analyzed to provide correlations and insights that are presented back to the user, so he/she can get a better understanding of their lifestyle and learn things about themselves that were not available before.

The members of the Platform Team need to have a deep understanding of distributed systems that can efficiently handle this large volume of data and provide near-real-time insights back to the users. Some of the current projects: SmartCoach, Open Device Protocol, Partner Platform, and many others.
