Everything happens somewhere - which is why spatial analytics is fundamental to companies trying to understand the “where” and the “why” of their business. CARTO is the leading cloud-native location intelligence platform, trusted by data scientists, data analysts, and developers from companies such as T-Mobile, Mastercard, NHL, Coca-Cola, and Deliveroo to provide geospatial insights for use cases such as site selection, geomarketing, network planning and much more.

With an exceptionally diverse team of 170 people spread across the US and Europe, CARTO is changing the way companies analyze location data - making it simple to do this straight out of modern, cloud data warehouses. Redefining its category, the company has grown rapidly in recent years providing a compelling alternative to legacy GIS software.

Our Solution Engineers are technical and creative and enjoy solving new and complex problems. We work to sharpen our technical skills and learn new technologies to help our customers to enable them to use geospatial technology to solve a wide range of problems and use cases.

The position is fully remote, but ideally based in Europe.

    • Discover what a customer wants to accomplish and will define how it can be achieved with a geospatial solution.
    • Transform requirements into a functional scope and economic proposal both for our SaaS platform and professional services.
    • Design architectures for proposed solutions for use cases such as Site Selection, Territory Planning, Geomarketing, or Market Analysis.

    • Experience working on solution-oriented apps using a wide range of technologies such as Python, Javascript, PostGIS, SQL, APIs, and more.
    • Ability to develop applications in HTML/CSS and Javascript (bonus points for React with Redux), and perform data analysis using SQL/Python (it’s okay if you are stronger in one or the other, but a willingness to learn both is key!)
    • A collaborative work style that can thrive in a flexible, fluid operating environment
    • A positive mindset. You’re motivated with a sense of urgency in executing and delivering growth. You run quickly with little supervision
    • Most of all, you are optimistic, data-driven, smart, and eager to learn!

    • Flexible work hours in a focused but casual environment
    • Access to private medical insurance
