Senior iOS Engineer, Navigation SDK

Mapbox, San Francisco

Build experiences for exploring the world


 
Maps are no longer static. Our maps represent the ever-evolving world, accessing, aggregating, and adapting anonymous data from millions of sensors and phones in real-time. Mapbox has the exciting opportunity to power devices and products across the next frontier in location-based data, such as Internet of Things and AR/VR.
 
Whether you’re watching the delivery of your grocery order on Instacart, looking at a gym on ClassPass, sending your snaps on Snapchat, tracking your personal best on Strava, monitoring your gas budget on Metromile, or checking today’s forecast on The Weather Channel, Mapbox is the location and maps within those apps. We’re changing how people move by live-mapping the world. We are the developer platform for location.

What We Do

Navigation is building a suite of products which will power Mapbox’s future growth in key verticals including Automotive & Logistics. Specifically, our turn by turn Navigation SDKs, internal dogfooding reference apps, and partnering with our customers to build new driver experiences. 
 
Navigation SDK combines the power of Mapbox’s Maps, Directions, Search, Telemetry & Vision technologies into a consumer grade package. The Navigation SDK product powers location for some of the most sophisticated companies in the world from Instacart & Porsche to DPD, helping them optimize their fleets and navigate through an ever-changing environment with a our living map.
