Urban Mapping is looking for brilliant and motivated software
engineers to join the core team of developers for Mapfluence, our hosted
mapping and analytics platform. You will help us define and build the
next generation of our world-class RESTful web services and APIs for
geovisualization.
On the server side, we work primarily in Python, but the developers
we are looking for are object-oriented wizards and can adapt to new
languages quickly. So if you’re a rock star in Python, Java, C++,
Smalltalk, Eiffel, or some other suitably object oriented language, then
we want to hear from you.
We work in small, nimble teams and like to go from idea to production
in less than two months. This means plenty of opportunity to
conceptualize, develop and have your code used by a broad base of users,
ensuring regular feedback.

  • BS in Computer Science or related discipline, or equivalent education plus work experience
  • 5+ years relevant work experience
  • Expert backend object-oriented programmer (e.g. Python, Java, C++)
  • Experience developing RESTful web services
  • A working knowledge of Agile Development practices
  • Great team player
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written
OTHER RELEVANT SKILLS
Experience developing one or more of the following is a bonus:
  • High-availability, high-traffic web services
  • High performance geo-databases
  • Web-based mapping applications
  • Big data
Urban Mapping, Inc (UMI) provides geospatial web and data services to
simplify the development and deployment of online mapping and data
visualization applications. UMI’s Mapfluence service offers a solid
technical infrastructure for mapping, custom base maps and the

leading interactive publishers like Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft and

This position pays a competitive base salary + benefits, including
paid vacation, health insurance, stock options, training/education,
centrally located in San Francisco’s Financial District, regular company
outings, food & fun, etc…
Relocation assistance is available, as is sponsorship for work authorization (H-1B or TN NAFTA).
