The Role

Redtail has built and collect data from hundreds of thousands of telematics and IoT devices, each of which regularly sends in data. This is converted to useful information for (in the main) fleet managers and insurers so they can help drivers be safer and kinder to the environment. Your role will be building our web portals to show the data as useful information and presenting it in a way that inspires action.

We mainly use a Microsoft stack (C# and .NET Core hosted in Azure) server-side and various JavaScript libraries on the client, but we value someone who understands the principles of software development and enthusiastically contributes their own ideas over expertise with any particular technology.  Many devices mean a lot of data, so we use a combined approach of relational and non-relational storage technology to store data in the right way.

As a key member of a small company providing telematics and IoT services to insurance companies, fleet managers and stolen vehicle recovery companies worldwide, you will see your work deployed quickly and will also get to work with customers to ensure key requirements are met. We use Scrum to coordinate development, typically with fortnightly iterations. Developers are also provided with a Pluralsight subscription and encouraged to attend developer events so they can bring ideas from peers in other industries to the team.

 

Main responsibilities of the role

  • Design and construct web application solutions to planned business and product requirements such as crash reconstruction, insurance fraud detection, driver scoring visualisation, location tracking, fleet reporting, etc.
  • Provide users with an attractive, highly usable web portal interface.
  • Actively participate in sprint planning, retrospectives, and reviews to ensure the highest of standards are applied to systems development.
  • Evangelise best-practice methods for web application development.
  • Identify and evaluate technical debt and promote resolutions.
  • Work with Redtail’s app developers to ensure a consistent user experience across platforms
  • Mentoring of junior staff in “the Redtail way”.

 

Technical Skills & Experience

Essential

  • Comprehensive understanding of the full stack software development lifecycle with C#, .Net, MVC, Azure (or other similar cloud services), SQL and Cosmos technologies, source code repositories, and deployment methods with specific skills building customer facing web portals.
  • Able to produce high quality, scalable, cohesive, testable, and readily deployable source code to defined functional, performance and security specifications and patterns.
  • Able to visualise location and event time series data into actionable information.
  • Able to design and build excellent web user experiences.

Desirable

  • Experience of systems with high transaction rate relational and document databases ingesting real time data from IoT devices.
  • Able to define and develop middle-layer components (Business logic, APIs, Controllers).
  • Able to develop back-end data ingestion and processing systems using heuristic and machine learning methods.
  • Understanding of hardware state-machines and communication protocols.
  • Experience with lossless and lossy processing of data.

 

Personal skills and attributes

  • First-class interpersonal skills with an open and collaborative approach.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
  • Enthusiastic, inspiring and open-minded attitude.
  • Agile and efficient approach, highly adaptable to changing circumstances.
  • Creative with the ability to bring innovative ideas.
  • Self-starter able to work on own initiative and take ownership of work.

Customer Service Engineer

Location: Cambridge area, UK

Redtail Telematics is looking for a hands-on Customer Services Engineer to join and manage a growing international customer support service providing both B2B and B2C support.  The ideal candidate will be willing to gain a deep understanding of the entire product range and be the customer champion making recommendations to the development team on how to improve the products and services offered.

 

Essential Skills & Experience

  • Working with the 3rd line teams to assist in incident management and their escalation where appropriate

  • Electronic fault finding experience a big plus

Main Activities of the role

Redtail currently uses the Kayako ticketing system to process the majority of support calls received via email, web, and voice support channels, so experience using Kayako or similar support tools would be beneficial.

In addition, you will be responsible for coordinating with the Supply Chain Manager on stock control and the timely delivery of hardware to our customers from the factory.

You will be responsible for managing and executing Redtail’s RMA repair process.  This will involve hands-on electronic repair and testing of returned products from the field.

One key part of our customer and prospect communication is the timely provision of content – can be technical, industry or deal related – to keep our brand and solutions at top of mind.  You will work with our commercial team to distribute that content to target audiences through cost-efficient platforms and technologies.

 

If you think you’re the perfect fit to be the newest member of the Redtail team, apply now.

 

Zen-tinel

"Zen-tinel has been a business partner with REDTAIL for many years now as our high tech products complement each other in the school bus market.  We have also had a very good experience as a REDTAIL Reseller.

One key selling point in the bus market is REDTAIL’s annual service program, which comes with two months free of service, since school buses typically don’t run in the Summer. Another benefit is the idling alert - many states do not allow buses to idle for more than 5 minutes, and our customers in Pittsburgh really appreciate the heads-up."

Handsfree

"I had a great experience with the Redtail tracking units and the personnel representing them. The products arrived at the customer's office in a timely fashion, making it easy to complete the job without any issues. In addition, the units logged-on to the system quickly, making it easy to move on and get the vehicles back on the road for the customer.

Finally, the extras that came in the packages were a great bonus (zip ties, star washer, and Velcro). To sum this up, great product and great personnel. I look forward to working with this company more in the future."

AB Construction

"Our company sells and erects pre-engineered steel buildings and we run a small fleet. I’m very happy with Redtail GPS. I saved enough in the first week to pay for the tracker and service after terminating three drivers who were late for work, falsifying timesheets and making unauthorized use of the vehicle. The remaining employees are more productive now just knowing that we use Redtail. It’s very user-friendly and easy to install.

We don’t get great cell coverage where we are but it’s been Johnny on the spot. It showed me both addresses at a job site based on where the truck was parked: it’s that precise! I use it with my iPad and plan to order another unit. Highly recommended."

UCI Construction

"We have 100 Redtail GPS devices and plan to buy more – our company is growing, and as we acquire other businesses we plan to outfit those trucks as well. We especially appreciate the pricing flexibility of the various Redtail service plans. We chose five minute screenshots, which have a lower monthly rate than other GPS companies quoted.

The Redtail customer service and tech support have been great, and we have achieved fuel savings. We’ve had a very good experience with Redtail."

Stringer Transports

"When the first truck was stolen we were running the Redtail GPS on it so we knew exactly where it was: in the back of a trailer park. We called the police so they could be there to supervise the recovery of our stolen property. The officer was skeptical: how do you know it’s there he asked.

I showed him on my smartphone: it’s right here, on such-and-such a road. Those things could be a mile off said the policeman. I said I’ve never known that to happen. So we all went back there and retrieved our truck – exactly where Redtail said it was."

Unigarant

"We began working with Redtail in 2016 and from the outset were impressed by their responsive approach to customers in creating our first OBD offering ahead of planned schedule, which they only achieved by over the top efforts.  The Redtail OBD product has proved to be very high quality and reliable, enabling us to experience far better than average product return rates for the industry.

Their deliveries have always been 100% to time or even better, despite some unexpected orders. That marks a good partnership. It’s not only technology, it’s also the way we got to know Redtail as a company - thinking ahead and putting real effort in to getting things done, with a solution oriented approach, even with the unexpected."

12 Volt Marketing Group

"I’m proud to say I was REDTAIL’s first Rep, and I’ve had a lot of success selling REDTAIL to my dealers in New Jersey and New York. For one thing, the company is becoming very well known as a major player in the fleet management business. Some of my dealers have fleet business, while others sell REDTAIL direct to end-users.

The hardware is an easy hookup and the UI is just as user friendly as REDTAIL’s customer service! I would encourage any manufacturers’ representatives – Rep Firms – who are interested in learning more about Fleet Tracking to give REDTAIL a call, or send an email to sales@redtailtelematics.com."

National Link

Our van was stolen on Saturday morning. It left the building at 6:38 am and the technician arrived at 8. We didn’t know if it was stolen or if a driver had borrowed it, but by 10 we realized it was stolen. The tech logged on and tracked it. We found it was driving around and then parked for 6 minutes. Cops were dispatched and arrested 5 people in the van.

Unfortunately, all our equipment and tools were already gone. We gave the cops a printout of all the stops the van made and they are going to follow up and try and retrieve them. As far as we’re concerned, the Redtail units just paid for themselves! We’re buying more."

Stringer Transports

"With the second stolen truck we could track its route and all of its stops around Oklahoma City. In 20/20 hindsight we could have set a geo-fence around it and probably nabbed the thief. But it turned out to be a good move just taking our truck back when we did - because a tornado ripped through that neighborhood a couple of days later, and we would have lost it if we’d waited.

The Redtail GPS tracking works really well for stolen vehicle recovery. We love it – I’m putting one on my restored ’79 Trans Am."

"What makes Redtail a particularly compelling choice as partner is their ability to develop a bespoke solution which meets our needs in an increasingly competitive marketplace. This has been demonstrated with the successful launch of our pay-by-mile car insurance policy.

Being able to get everything from engine diagnostics codes through to crash reports using Redtail hardware means we can offer much more than an insurance policy, and we look forward to building out many other new features in the future with their support."

Our Partnership with REDTAIL has delivered the accuracy of data we need, enabling us to create and evolve proprietary algorithms and scoring which are proven to be highly predictive of loss and deliver market leading loss ratios for our underwriters."

"We’ve got a good customer who sends us a lot of business – but one of their fares was difficult. Our guy was 20 minutes early, but there was some kind of miscommunication, and the fare never hooked-up with him and claimed he wasn’t there, so consequently we weren’t going to get paid. I didn’t care about the money so much, but I definitely care about our good name!

So, I reached out to Redtail, and thanks to their GPS Total Solution, they e-mailed me time-stamps to show my guy was right where he was supposed to be – not only on time but early! They apologized and paid, thanks to Redtail’s outstanding technology."

REDTAIL Telematics came to my attention in the very early days of Usage-Based Insurance when young driver coaching and their technology was used to help launch UBI pioneer ingenie. Their products and services have proved insightful and robust, and have evolved with markets as diverse as vehicle tracking, all aspects of fleet management, and most latterly the demands of monetising the connected vehicle.

Throughout their solutions have been quality first, scalable and adaptable to vertical or geography – a true technology and commercial partner.

Of course, one of the biggest REDTAIL benefits is their Team; they always provide the highest levels of service."
