At FATMAP we are building the world’s leading outdoor adventure platform powered by the most advanced 3D mobile mapping engine on the planet. In the past year alone, we have grown to hundreds of thousands of users, mapped over 100 major mountain destinations and launched our web API as the official mapping partner for the world’s biggest ski resort – Les 3 Vallées. We are a team of 27 across Europe and the US and we are proud to have earned 'Best Start-up' at Login.LT and EXA/Computex Awards. Our vision is to revolutionise mapping and digital tools for outdoor activities by harnessing the 3D graphics capabilities of cutting-edge gaming technology. Initially targeted at the specific needs of outdoor activities, including skiing, hiking, mountain-biking and mountaineering, we are now looking to expand our horizons, and via a generic mapping API address a huge range of potential business sectors and use cases from environmental impact monitoring to humanitarian relief operations. If you’re looking for a new opportunity and you’re a skier / boarder / climber / runner / cyclist, you’ll feel right at home.
Role & Responsibility:
As a 3D mapping platform built to support adventure, we have an ever
