The successful candidate will perform field evaluation on digital Maps, be responsible for all testing and reporting, whilst benefiting from having full autonomy in the field.

The main field tests will be for drive routing where a sample of driving routes will be tested on a device to ensure they meet expectations and fulfil user requirements.

They will be required to test for 6 hours per day and will spend up to 2 hours each day compiling information and submitting reports. Other field tests will include pedestrian and transit routing so testers should be capable of walking up to 10 miles per day.
