The 16th annual awards "IT GALA" took place on 12th October to recognize the most successful IT companies, projects and personalities. We are pleased to announce that Sygic became the IT company of the year!
I've known Sygic ever since I came across a first smartphone with its GPS Navigation app. I knew it was a Slovak company, developing a first-class mobile application. This summer, after the app successfully got me and my friends to and from my holiday in Croatia, I stumbled upon the opportunity to join the new Sygic team in Brno. I knew straight away it was the right choice for me.
Thousands of people die on the roads each day, which adds up to more than a million deaths per year. Each plane crash is a catastrophe that makes it into the headlines, but the millions of people dying on the roads is a tragedy often expressed as a mere statistic. There are already technologies that can eliminate these tragedies in the form of self-driving vehicles. Every carmaker now has its own technology for self-driving vehicles. But do they want to release them? What will happen next? What about deciding between economics or a moral dilemma?
Of course, we couldn't miss this year's Bratislava Night Run. Almost 4500 ran the 10km track, with 20 runners from Sygic :).
In August, our colleagues managed to win an international hackathon in Budapest. They nailed it with a machine-learning solution that optimizes address search in our navigation app.
After 3 months of seeking and careful consideration, we have finally found our Sygic Traveler who will travel around the world for a whole year, capturing atmosphere of the most unique places via 360° camera. Michal Galik is the lucky traveler and video maker to get the dream job.
At Sygic we strive for data-driven decisions. Recently, we have been considering List vs Tiles while designing a new Search Options screen. Setting up a simple click test to see the actual performance of both design approaches was an obvious choice. Yet, some of the observations were rather suprising.
We would all like to spend the whole summer by the pool. However, since summertime is also the top travel season, we have to be there to accompany our users on the road. Fortunately, there are way to make hot days in the office a little more exciting. This summer has got to be FRESH.
Challenge is one of our core values. Sounds nice but what it is really like to step out of one's comfort zone? This year's main challenge at the traditional Challenge Day was wakeboard.
The job is to develop web applications (NodeJS + React) for vehicle monitoring, fleet management, or transport management. You will create a new pan-European fleet management system for 500,000 vehicles. We currently run www.dispencer. Sk, www.webdispecink.cz and telematics.eurowag.com and the Europe-wide transport management system - Transport manager. This is working on web portals with thousands of users daily. We use the latest technology. We are looking for a relaxed person who finds working on complex challenging tasks.
We are looking for a dedicated salesperson to join our team and fully use their talent and abilities to develop our international B2B business. Our new colleague will be responsible for active acquisition and account management, contract negotiation, and mapping of market and competition, all within an international environment.
