At Alchera we believe in a future where transport infrastructure is data-driven: be it an ambulance being given a traffic-free route to a hospital, a traffic light communicating with a self-driving car to prioritise pedestrians, or a drone providing ad-hoc data from a sensor blackspot. We believe systems that use real-time data will be the de facto operational systems of daily life. Mobility and transport infrastructure have a huge impact on how we live our lives – from trips for work, school or seeing friends, to how we transport goods including the food we eat and the products we buy.


Our mission is to create the most widely used & trusted real-time data software platform for all mobility infrastructure. We want to make infrastructure intelligent.


Alpha is our flagship product. It is an intelligent data hub, offering easy access to mobility data feeds, analytics and applications. Alpha handles data gathered about roads, vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists; provides advanced analytics like data fusion and prediction, and powers applications which are helping design, develop and operate large-scale transport infrastructure today. Our team designs state-of-the-art event-driven architectures, develops new machine learning methodologies to better predict and provide insights and serves this data with ultra low latency to various endpoints. The infrastructure industry has not traditionally been a fast technology adopter: as the most trusted new solution in the sector, we are now building the technology upon which the future of mobility will be developed.


Alchera is looking for collaborative team players to join us and work alongside our experienced and specialist teams on the full-stack development & commercialisation of our real-time data platform. Working with us means working in an energetic and driven start-up community with a team of supportive & talented colleagues, in a position to shape the future of transport and the built environment. Due to Covid-19, we are predominantly working from home right now. We are actively interviewing, hiring and onboarding remotely.
