Few people know the mapping industry as well as Marc Prioleau. He was a crucial early advisor to our team as we raised our first round of investment. After a stint at Uber, Marc is coming home to our business development team bringing decades of experience.
Marc comes back to Mapbox at a critical time. Maps are no longer add-on features — they’re core to mobile products like Uber. Our platform based on a fusion of open data and realtime user feedback makes it possible for any developer to have constantly improving maps, location search, and traffic-aware directions in their app.
I am super excited to have Marc on our team. Things are about to get very interesting.
