Deliveries you will work on


Kogenta has researched and developed a unique technology which is capable of understanding what type of transportation vehicle you are using in real time. This is done by looking at patterns from your smartphone sensors.

We need to further understand, explore and research these capabilities to enable true Be-in, Be-out ticketing solutions for public transportation. In essence this is Uber for public transport where the end result is a more friction free travel experience where payment is removed from the experience while still generating revenue and data which can be further used to optimise the public transport service.

Currently we are piloting the product in Sweden together with Nobina and we are exploring other pilots to be conducted during 2023 and 2024. Your contribution would be to further develop and implement new ways of using Machine Learning and data processing to our SDK and back end. A data scientist would be responsible for the ML models which will be developed and tuned.

Data Flow and Integrations

As a Data Engineer specializing in Data Flow and Integrations at Kogenta, you’ll be at the forefront of our mission to continually enhance and expand our platform’s features and integrations. We are dedicated to optimizing our data processing and integration pipelines for efficiency and resilience.

Your role as a Data Engineer is pivotal in achieving this objective. You will spearhead the development and maintenance of data pipelines, ensuring the seamless flow of high-quality data. Your contributions will be instrumental in enabling us to deliver exceptional products and services to our valued customers.


If you have an interest in, or experience with, SDK and app development you will be incentivised to help our SDK developers with their work on our Kettle SDK with its unique features and data creation.

Product development

We are delivering many different products within the space of mobility and advertisement. Our products are in constant development and your contribution to this development is essential for our future success. Especially how you suggest how data should be understood and how we can monetise these data as products and services will be an important contribution to the team who works on business development.
