Co-founders of Maptia, Jonny, Dean and Dorothy, graduated as an economist and two geographers – the perfect combination to kick-start a map-based business.
Dorothy has great motivation to achieve; she makes things happen. Top of her university class three years running, she is a natural leader and outstanding organiser of complex projects.
Jonny is the ‘ideas man’ – hard-working, passionate about entrepreneurship, and unafraid to set ambitious goals. His first class thesis equipped him with valuable insight into applying open innovation theory using co-creative platforms such as that envisioned for Maptia.
Dean flourishes in a non-conformist environment and his wit and intelligence arm him with intuitive good judgment when making complex decisions. At university his specialism was geo-locational databases and mapping techniques; highly relevant skill sets for development of Maptia.
Life at Maptia
We will have hammocks in the office, surfing trips at weekends and an unlimited supply of freshly squeezed mango juice.
