Developer Platform - Data Platform
WeWork is one of the few companies that has a real application for Internet of Things technology. Our buildings and offices benefit from having sensors and devices to improve the user experience. Imagine a world where you can go into any WeWork property, tap your badge, and watch your desk automatically conform to you: the desk height can raise to match your height, the computer monitor can adjust to the angle of your sightline, and even your preferred operating system will load up on the monitor in front of you. All of this will need to be powered by a robust data platform that can process and analyze data at immense scale.
The Data Platform team’s mission is to envision, build, and deploy the next generation platform for data ingestion, processing, storage, scheduling, and analysis to provide leverage for all of the business lines within The We Company.
