Information about the position

Job description, responsibilities and duties

• Masternaut created the field of vehicle telematics in 1996. We deliver SaaS solutions that measure and report real time data from vehicles. These solutions help our clients drive significant operational improvements: reducing fuel consumption, increasing vehicle utilization (which reduces the number of vehicles on the road), and improving the safety and productivity of their staff. In 2015, our clients reduced fuel consumption by 60 million gallons and avoided the release of 600 million kg of CO2 into the atmosphere.
• Within the rapidly expanding area of the Internet of Things (IoT), telematics is one of the most mature products with proven commercial application, delivering 3x to 5x ROIs for our customers.
