Job Description

What We Do

At Mapbox, we provide the building blocks that enable our customers to push the boundaries of what’s possible with interactive maps and how people use location technologies in their daily lives.

What You’ll Do

  • Work with a modern C++14 code base, using the best practices of software engineering and tools. You'll also work establishing platform bindings to all modern mobile platform languages.
  • Solve interesting problems, ranging from graphics programming, algorithms, and architectural challenges.
  • Improve the project’s performance, stability, maintainability and simplicity.
  • Work together with internal teams to ensure best practices for cross-platform API design.

What We Believe are Important Traits for This Role

  • Strong in C++, algorithms and performance optimization.
  • Curiosity, enthusiasm, eagerness to solve challenging technical problems using emerging technologies.
  • Empathy and kindness; willingness to learn from different perspectives and patience to help others grow.
  • Strong communication skills and ability to collaborate effectively with distributed teams.

Helpful experiences that are a plus but not a requirement

  • Mobile development (Java, Kotlin, Objective-C, Swift).
  • Graphics programming (OpenGL, Metal, Vulkan, WebGL, WebGPU).
  • Location technologies (maps, GIS).
  • Backend development experience (AWS, SQL, Node.js).
  • Other programming experience (JavaScript, CI scripts).
  • Embedded platforms (Linux embedded, Android Automotive).
  • Maintaining or contributing to open source projects.

What We Value

In addition to our core values, which are not unique to this position and are necessary for Mapbox leaders:

  • We value high-performing creative individuals who dig into problems and opportunities.
  • We believe in individuals being their whole selves at work. We commit to this through supportive health care, parental leave, flexibility for the things that come up in life, and innovating on how we think about supporting our people.
  • We emphasize an environment of teaching and learning to equip employees with the tools needed to be successful in their function and the company.
  • We strongly believe in the value of growing a diverse team and encourage people of all backgrounds, genders, ethnicities, abilities, and sexual orientations to apply.
