We are looking for more people

Today we updated our jobs page. We’re currently on the lookout for three positions:

1. Global Business Operations Lead
2. Front-End Developer
3. DevOps Engineer

Since we’re already a distributed team, remote work is also possible if you don’t want to relocate to Sweden. If you’re interested in one of these, just reach out in an email with your CV and references. By the way, if you know me, you might as well contact me directly to clarify things.

Mapillary is a 20-something people big, financially stable product company. I’m emphasizing this because if you’re used to agency style work, this will be night and day. 🙂 Come, join us!

Mapillary raises $8M to take on Google’s Street View with crowdsourced photos

TechCrunch:

A startup out of Malmo, Sweden called Mapillary is using crowdsourced photos to create an open source, B2B database to compete with Google’s Street View, and today the company announced a Series A round of funding from an impressive list of backers to help make that ambition a reality.

The $8 million from Atomico, Sequoia, LDV Capital, and PlayFair will be used to expand operations outside of its home base of Malmo, including a new office in San Francisco, and also to hire more staff, such as computer vision engineers to supercharge the kind of data that can been gleaned from Mapillary’s image library.

Fantastic news to come to work to.
