Aj's Story

We're encouraged to take risks and be curious. From a mistake comes an opportunity to learn. This is something Mapbox has not shied away from.

I’ve been in tech sales for nearly a decade, working for a government contractor selling accessibility solutions for the deaf (ADAS). Looking for a new challenge, I heard about a DC-based company working from a garage. When I visited, I noticed the garage had no elevator, and there were dogs running around everywhere. The office had a casual feel and I immediately noticed the diversity: other people had ethnicities like mine; there was a diversity of education — people who hadn’t gone to college; people with a natural curiosity like me. The place was full of really smart people.

Fun Fact: I enjoy bird watching and I'm bilingual.

Savannah's Story

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.

Fun Fact: I eat kiwi’s like apples… skin and all…

Vartika's Story

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.

Fun Fact: My school building used to be the King’s stables.

Angela's Story

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.

Initiatives

"At Mapbox, diversity and inclusion isn’t just something we care about, it’s something we strive to embed into everything we do.

The Task Force: Embedding Diversity & Inclusion

Our commitments

As part of our continued growth as a company, the Q1 Diversity & Inclusion task force took on the challenge of updating our Diversity & Inclusion policy.
