About Hivemapper

Hivemapper is a decentralized mapping network that enables monitoring and autonomous navigation without the need for expensive sensors, aircraft, or satellites.

2,600+ sq km mapped with video cameras

Build smarter maps, together.

Anyone with a video camera can quickly and easily build a smarter and fresher map. The map you build can live and grow alongside the maps of thousands of mapmakers, or keep your map private just for your team. You build it. You control it.

Our team

At our headquarters in Silicon Valley we’ve assembled a team of mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, and user experience designers to to create a modern mapping platform fed by a network of videos. Our founding team members and advisors come from Yahoo, Intel, Google Earth, Palantir, and Mapbox.

Working at Hivemapper

Our values

how we act

Always be inventing
We are iterative. We are resilient. We are curious. We don’t fear the messiness.
Have empathy and candor.
We are thoughtful of other perspectives and we give others the benefit of the doubt. We speak our minds but always with respect and intellectual honesty. We understand that listening unlocks more than talking, and we strive to be good listeners. We support others to be successful in their journeys.
Go a bit over the speed limit.
We are ambitious. We are constantly asking ourselves what is my next level. We believe that it is better to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission, yet we won’t be reckless.
Own the problem.
We do what it takes to deliver. We herd the cats to drive our projects forward. We strive to articulate a vision or define the problem and rally others to solve it.

how we make decisions

Be proud of what you ship.
We care about our work. We are making something that we want to use and are proud of recommending.
Wear the customer’s shoes.
We get into the customer’s mindset, go to the customer to learn how they work, we observe and listen.
Be bold.
Nobody ever won by thinking and acting small.
Open jobs

Maps are the perfect combination of utility and design. You’ll work with ambitous and talented people solving hard problems in computer vision, design, and business. The more ambitious you are the better, so get in touch even if there is not an exact position that speaks to you.

During the current COVID environment we are in full support of everyone working from the environment where they feel safest. We look forward to the post-COVID world where we will be bringing everyone back to one of our two offices in the heart of sunny Silicon Valley or in the gorgeous and vibrant Washington DC.
