Data Engineer & Backend Developer Intern
ViaNova is on a mission to reduce congestion and pollution in cities: we are the leading platform for managing urban mobility, partnering with cities and private mobility operators, in enabling more liveable streets, through better data analysis. We aggregate securely data of share mobility services such as free floating electric scooters, and provide cities with a platform to manage and regulate these fleets.
City officials can visualise and understand usage patterns of these services, through insightful analytics. They can also set up rules and regulations, and push them to private operators, and get live compliance reporting.
With our platform, we aim to become the control tower for the cities to manage and regulate mobility operators, transporting goods and people. Our platform has been released three months ago, we are marketing it to cities and enrolling into pilot program with leading European capitals. Leading mobility providers and European capitals have tested our platform and we are aiming to run ten pilots by end of the year.
