We believe in the power of technology to improve communities and our planet.

Azavea applies geospatial technology for civic and social impact in elections, ecosystems, history, public safety, climate change, and more. Our team is growing. All that's missing is you!

Build beautiful web and mobile software that matters

Our developers work closely with our UI/UX team to build user-focused applications in a range of languages and frameworks, like Javascript, Python, Django, Scala, and C#. We strive for elegant solutions to complex problems to bring about positive change.

Advancing the state-of-the-art and sharing the results

We believe in being generous with our time, knowledge, and expertise. We enjoy that feeling of fulfillment from doing good for others. We want to be helpful to our partners, our friends, and the larger technology community as much as we are to our paying customers.

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.


Giving Back

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.

10% Research

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.

Pro Bono and Summer of Maps

Through our pro bono program and Summer of Maps fellowship program we work on spatial analysis projects for organizations that do not have the resources to do so on their own. These projects have the potential for positive impact on whole communities.

Open Source

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.
