Software Developer - Front End Map Editor

Who we are and what we do

Founded in 2011, Mappedin powers search and discovery indoors, enabling consumers to find what they’re looking for with speed and ease. Our software platform provides industry leading tools to manage dynamic indoor spatial data and offer wayfinding experiences for customer-facing applications, including a recent collaboration with Apple Maps.

Mappedin works with the ten largest malls in Canada, the largest REITs in the US, and in stores, hospitals, campuses, and airports around the world.

The Platform team at Mappedin works on our core platform and is what enables our clients to keep their maps up-to-date. We also provide search and analytics information to our customers, allowing them to make better decisions fueled by data. As technology improves daily, we need to continue advancing our Map Editor to stay at the top of our game.

Who you are and what you’ll do

You love to work with the newest technology, are passionate about solving complicated problems, and want to contribute to our further success. We expect you to build for the future and keep challenging us on our views of what’s best for Mappedin’s future.

As part of the Development team and reporting to the Development Manager – Platform, you will be helping us develop and improve our mapping tools:

  • Continually enhance our Content Management System (Map Editor)

You are highly interested in learning about or already have experience in:

  • Modern web stack – React.js, Webpack, npm, etc.
  • WebGL, Three.js, and Leaflet

What are some challenges?

You’ll be working on solving really hard problems that may not have been solved yet. You won’t be able to just search for an answer.

Behind the scenes

We use a variety of technology and tools that currently include JavaScript, React, Redux, Three.js, Webpack, npm, WebGL, Node.js, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, Kibana, AWS, Swift, SceneKit, OpenGL, Github, and JIRA.

There’s a lot of trust here at Mappedin. We work flexible hours, have a flexible vacation policy, and provide you with the hardware and office equipment you require to do your best work. We value execution and will do what it takes to get things done if it’s something we’ve promised. We stay curious and will always ask each other questions, rarely making assumptions. We recognize that we are all different and will challenge each other’s views and perceptions from time to time, resulting in constructive and healthy debates, but that never stops us from all eating lunch together every day. If you want to join our sports team, we have a blank bright orange jersey here waiting for your name to be printed on it.

Lastly, we have an awesome office cat who loves attention. Allergic? Don’t worry, Hobbes stays on the other side of the office and won’t bother you unless you decide to work in the collaboration area there.
