Graphic Designer, Co-op (Fall)
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 Marketing team is filled with people who are looking to combine creativity with data driven analysis, and applying that to everything we do. We ensure our products are presented in a way that highlights our position as a leader in indoor wayfinding.

What are some challenges?
This is the first time we’ve hired for this role so there’s a lot of upfront work that needs to be done. We’re a fast-paced environment and the workload will sometimes seem unmanageable, but we’ll help you prioritize.
Behind the scenes
Our tool set currently includes Adobe Creative Suite, but we are firm supporters in supplying whatever tools are necessary for you to produce your best work.
There’s a lot of trust here at Mappedin. We work flexible hours, have a flexible vacation policy and work to provide the hardware or office equipment you require to unleash your potential. We will do what it takes to get things done if we said we would do it. 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.
