I have been working at Mapjects as a contractor (More than a year)
1) More employee attention, smaller firm, specialized and focused in engineering. 2) The office is custom-built and some fun exclusive employee use only gaming events, like a starutp has, foosball, ping pong, etc. 3) On down time, they were very constructive, and especially when we first started, we did more team events on longer fully paid weekend event. Which was completly out of the ordinary, and fun. They were attempting/trying to brew a family and freinds atmosphere-which I appreciate. The mini-van was not big enough, so we had to drive our cars, they forgot to comp me on the fuel. But Mapjects paid for the rest of the trip, tickets and loding. 4) The office is dog, pet-friendly. 5) For the size of the organization, they sustain relatively innovative, nimble, and fast-paced and open with communication but, that is definitely changing as they institute new process. Interesting to see how the new management will maintain that balance. They're opened an office in VA. 6) With their focus areas, and products, growing it will be interesting to watch their managements roadmap. 7) You work with some of the brightest, most innovative and hard-working/diligent minds in the industry.
The change in the office location has some of us wondering whats happening to our careers. Also, Mapjects sustains relatively innovative, nimble, and fast-paced and open with communication. Its going to be interesting to see how they bring this to their services side.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mapjects.
Applied on this site, some interviews were in the office, and others are at a noisy starbucks or a mall - this was deliberate to see how well focused, yet relaxed I was. [Must have a solid grasp of fundamental concepts of graphic design principles Intermediate skills designing for web/tablet/mobile Strong skills in the Adobe Creative Suite (Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator) Strong skills in Microsoft PowerPoint and Word.] The process had 3 Steps, after I applied with my resume, and included some artifacts around .AI and PSD files. I decided to submit those vector files to show them, that the artwork was my own, and it had good practices (bonus points). Just when I forgot, in 2 or 3 weeks, I got a follow up and a call. It was odd, because rather than asking what I could provide, they asked me what I was looking for! Later, they told me, with what I submitted it was clear what I could do. So, when I asked for remoter work, they agreed with a couple of conditions. Steps, 1 and 2 were basic screening questions. The last was more a discovery process on how well we fit, and what I could do to help them.
- 1) How can you give Mapjects a unique, and well aligned... **** "good fit messaging" *** on our OneVIew PMO, 360 Spend, and TRACK products to ensure our customers understand what we do succinct? 2) What would you change about your branding approach, regarding product brochures, example packaging, leaflets, brochures, business cards? 3) What can you do differently for us, from the average designer and how would it help Mapjects? 1 Answer
Easy, reasonable. I was looking for additional income, and this worked out very well. We just bought a cool Scion.
