Company: Mapbox
Location: San Francisco
Posted on: January 17, 2020

Job Description:

Maps are no longer static. Our maps represent the ever-evolving world, accessing, aggregating, and adapting anonymous data from millions of sensors and phones in real-time. Mapbox has the exciting opportunity to power devices and products across the next frontier in location-based data, such as Internet of Things and AR/VR.

Whether you re watching the delivery of your grocery order on Instacart, looking at a gym on ClassPass, sending snaps on Snap, tracking your personal best on Strava, monitoring your gas budget on Metromile, or checking today s forecast on The Weather Channel, Mapbox is the location and maps within those apps. We re changing how people move by mapping the world in real-time. We are the developer platform for location.


Navigation serves customers with use cases ranging from turn-by-turn navigation in electric vehicles to delivery route planning for fleets of thousands of trucks. Our services are often at the heart of the operations of our customers businesses. We get users from point A to point B effectively and on time, whether it s delivering meals, servicing medical equipment, or commuting to work.

Navigation Services include our core routing engine, API services, mobile SDKs, and driver application. Our routing engine is built using C++ for performance and flexibility, with the same core engine powering our server-side APIs as well as our mobile SDK for on-device offline routing. We leverage Node JS and AWS ECS-driven API and data processing services for generating our routing data. Development on our APIs often requires working at multiple levels of the stack: from the native C++ level, to the API and infrastructure level. Members of our Navigation team become deeply familiar with routing data structures and how real-world constructs are represented in map data structures: from GPS traces and location data to metadata for highway exits, one way signs, truck weights and bridge heights.

Our products power experiences and operations for customers like DPD, Porsche, Doordash and Instacart.
