Diversity & Inclusion
To build Mapbox for everyone, we need ideas and magic from everywhere. Mapbox is a global team of individuals from all backgrounds with dynamic life experiences.
Working at Mapbox means being part of an amazing community of friendly, diverse, and talented people who work together to achieve big goals. None of us took the same path to get here, but we can all find our world at Mapbox.
I’ve never boomeranged before, but I am happy to do it for Mapbox. The people, culture and community are one of a kind and I’m lucky to be apart of it again.
When I joined Mapbox I was excited to hear more about the product and ground breaking initiatives the CEO presented during my onboarding. What I didn't expect was to be welcomed by such a diverse and culturally sound community.
Mapbox is a company where the values are in the forefront. Not just talked about but actually applied and immersed in the culture. This is something, as an HR business partner, that really sticks out to me and makes my job that much more rewarding.
There is an importance that leadership applies to being culturally aware and informed that most smaller start ups are not equipped with yet. So good in fact, they were able to woo me back! I actually left Mapbox in 2019 but rejoined happier than ever in 2020. The growth from a culture standpoint from when I first joined, to rejoining now is beyond exciting and motivating. I’ve never boomeranged before, but I am happy to do it for Mapbox. The people, culture and community are one of a kind that I am lucky to be apart of again.

Mapbox people team
I want to build products that impact people’s day-to-day lives, mine included.
I joined Mapbox over a year ago as an Engineering Manager on the Maps API team. I was looking for a product and domain that would be relevant for a long time. I want to build products that impact people’s day-to-day lives, mine included. I am also somebody who is not good with directions and always needs a map to get around. Mapbox checked all of these boxes for me.
My interview experience convinced me that these were people I would like to work with. My time here has simply reaffirmed my belief about the same. Together we've launched Mapbox Tiling Service, 3D maps, traffic maps and many other products.
A lot of my team is remote and we have great processes in place to make sure everyone feels included in important conversations and is well informed. The pandemic was hard for all of us. It was easy for us to be remote as the processes were already there and were working.
I look forward to more fun times with my team and building great products.

Mapbox Maps Team
I would confidently say that I have learned something new every day I've worked at Mapbox.
Over the last three years, I've had multiple roles at Mapbox, but currently I lead our Directions service. Something fun to know about me is, I love data. At Mapbox I have found some particularly rich and complex data problems. I've enjoyed the challenge of making sense out of our telemetry data to figure out how it can help us improve our map and create valuable products for our customers.
I would confidently say that I have learned something new every day I've worked at Mapbox. The world of mapping and navigation is vast and fascinating, and once you realize you live in the map, you inevitably become obsessed with the details and the nuance. The team at Mapbox has also taught me that diversity can be elevated to a whole new level, and I am often both in awe and thankful for having the opportunity to see first hand the beauty of different backgrounds and perspectives getting together to build something good.
Fun Fact: I have a terrible sense of direction.
