Fast Company chose to recognize Mapbox for its commitment to investing in an inclusive and innovative workplace culture and in advancing the positive social and environmental impact of its technology. As a global company with employees in Europe, North Americaand Asia, Mapbox has embraced remote-work across its team, updating policies, benefits, and championing Employee Resource Groups to best support employees and build community wherever they are based. Mapbox continues to foster innovation through these Employee Resource Groups that champion community-building and mentorship for different communities of employees.

And an overarching commitment to stay close to customers – both external and internal – keeps Mapbox employees connected to, and inspired by, opportunities to solve real problems.
Within the last year, a cross-functional team of passionate Mapbox employees came together to develop a new product that would improve the driving experience in electric vehicles (EVs). The result Mapbox EV Routing solution equips automakers and app developers to help drivers find the most efficient routes that intelligently account for charging locations, charging times, changing traffic conditions and other factors. By improving the experience of driving and owning an EV, saving drivers time and money, and using charging infrastructure more efficiently, Mapbox is making crucial contributions to the transition to electric vehicles for consumers and commercial fleets.
