Mappedin provides solutions to over 600M square feet of indoor space across more than 700 venues in more than 30 different countries.
Mappedin’s Product and Platform team is a group of developers responsible for Mappedin’s core products used by tens of millions of people: Our Pre-Built Mapping Applications, Developer Tools, and Indoor Mapping Software.
Who you are and what you’ll do
You’re a developer that wants to build great applications used by millions of people and don’t care if that means jumping into a front end application with React or a back end service with Node. What you do care about is clean code that works, covered with high quality automated tests.
Your team is responsible for both maintaining Mappedin’s current Indoor Mapping Software as well as building our next generation Editor product. That means you will:
- Build significant new features with code that is testable, supported with automated testing, matches the design, and only does what it needs to do
- Understand why every ticket you are working on is important and who it’s for
- Improve yourself and your team by giving and receiving high quality code reviews
- Help groom tickets so they are well understood and can be completed in the agreed upon schedule
You already have or are interested in obtaining experience in:
- Front End Application Development using React
- Back End Service Development using Node
- Test Driven Development
- Event-driven architectures
- Map rendering frameworks such as deck.gl, Leaflet, or MapBox GL JS
What are some challenges?
Mappedin moves fast and we sometimes change directions. We can’t always wait for all the information before we try something. If you want us to guarantee exactly what you’ll be working on three months from now, we can’t give you that. On the other hand, there is a lot of high value work to do, and it won’t be boring.
Building the core tools that Mappedin and our customers rely on to make and maintain over 600 million square feet of premium indoor space worldwide is no easy task. We need our tools to be both easy to get started with while not holding back power users.
Mappedin follows the Test Driven Development methodology to write code that is testable, tested, and only does what it needs to do. We don’t expect you to be an expert in TDD when you start, but we do expect you to become one. You also own the quality of your own work, and we expect you to prove that with your own integration and end to end tests.
There is a lot of discovery work involved as we frequently do things that are ahead of current technology. We also encounter tough problems that require a lot of math. It’s not a requirement for this role, but if you enjoy solving interesting geometry problems, we’d love to have your input.
Behind the scenes
We recognize developers are most effective when they’re allowed to get into the zone; therefore, we run an agile development process designed to give our developers as much uninterrupted development time as possible. Most days the only meeting you’re looking at is the morning standup.
We use a variety of technology and tools that currently include TypeScript, React, Jest, Three.js, Webpack, Node.js, Postgres, Kafka, MongoDB, and Docker.
There’s a lot of trust here at Mappedin. We offer a flexible working environment, have a generous vacation policy, and we all work together to help you produce your best work. We stay curious, challenge opinions, take risks, and learn from mistakes. We’re competitive and we like to win together. We want you to join us
