TRAFFIC DATA JOURNALIST

Have you ever wondered where the traffic news you hear on the radio or see on your sat nav comes from? INRIX team of Traffic Data Journalists supplies real-time traffic incident and congestion data to 95% of the radio stations in the UK, as well as household names in the automotive industry such as Ford and Garmin. Our international team also supplies the same data to over 200 television stations in the United States.

We have part-time opportunities available at our global data centre in Quinton, Birmingham. Successful applicants will gather data from information sources including traffic cameras, ‘jamline’ callers, the police, CCTV control rooms, highway authorities and social media and manage it using our custom-built incident mapping software.

No two days are the same and we work 24/7 to keep the public informed of what’s happening on UK, European and North American road networks. You'll be taking calls from all over the country, keeping an eye on hundreds of 'jam cams' and using the latest technology to help keep the roads moving.

INRIX is an internationally successful company and provides its employees with resources that are second to none. We are a close-knit team and work in a professional yet friendly environment.
