Certified B Corporation
One of the B Corp Best for the Workers 2013 recipients, our mission is to create stronger communities while providing a stimulating, intellectually challenging, and open environment for our employees.
Every year, we give away at least 2% of our profits to non-profit organizations. The selection is done collaboratively as each member of our team is asked to allocate the contributions we will make.
Staff members are encouraged to develop a personal research or learning program and can spend up to 10% of their time on this. Several research projects have been turned into new software tools, won awards or have enabled us to pursue new business opportunities in domains we had not explored before.
We believe that communities of knowledge, culture and innovation are more vital and energetic when outcomes are shared, enabling others to more effectively build on past work. Check our GitHub account as well as our work on the GeoTrellis, OpenTreeMap and DistrictBuilder projects. Many of our colleagues are active contributors in other open source projects too.
