We’re excited to welcome Matt Ficke to Mapbox! Matt is joining our geocoding team, working from the D.C. garage to ship features, launch countries and hunt down open data to power it all.

Matt comes to us via ElasticM2M, where he built software for automotive GPS applications. He’s also a James Beard-nominated bartender from his time running the Columbia Room and a talented cyclist (albeit one who is occasionally dazed post-race). Welcome, Matt!
