What are some challenges?
Building the core tools that Mappedin and our customers rely on to make and maintain over 500 million square feet of premium retail space worldwide is no easy task. We need our tools to be both easy to get started with for new users, while not holding back power users from getting in and doing what they need quickly. We move fast and can't always wait for all the information before we try something.
There is a lot of discovery work involved as we frequently do things that are ahead of current technology. We also encounter tough problems that require a lot of math. It’s not a requirement for this role, but if you enjoy solving interesting geometry problems, we’d love to have your input.
Behind the scenes
We recognize developers are most effective when they’re allowed to get into the zone; therefore, we run an agile development process designed to give our developers as much uninterrupted development time as possible. Most days the only meeting you’re looking at is the morning standup.
It’s fun to work in nice clean code bases but the realities of moving fast means sometimes things get a bit messy. We always make sure we have 20% dev time available to do refactoring and retire technical debt.
There’s a lot of trust here at Mappedin. We are currently remote by default. We offer a flexible working environment, have a generous vacation policy, and we all work together to help you produce your best work. We stay curious, challenge opinions, take risks, and learn from mistakes. We’re competitive and we like to win together.
