Aaron Lidman

Aaron Lidman joins the MapBox team! Aaron has amazing experience on both the product side and data side. He’s created projects like Toner for TileMill, a custom CartoCSS style for anyone to make cool black and white maps like Stamen, and OpenStreetMap and GeoJSON, a JavaScript module for converting between OSM XML and GeoJSON data. Most recently, he launched OSMLY — a tool that makes importing data into OpenStreetMap more straightforward through a simple user interface. Aaron is also a regular contributor to OpenStreetMap.

Aaron will be working on our core engineering team across various projects. Right now Aaron is working with me building out new features on iD, our open source map editor, and improving the main OpenStreetMap.org website by making the project easier to understand for new users and introducing a modern look and feel.
