Senior Interaction Designer

Build the future of Outdoor Adventure with us!

At FATMAP we’re building the home for Outdoor Experiences. From mountains to deserts, oceans to forests and beyond - we want to make extraordinary places and their endless possibilities more accessible. By enabling more people to experience the wonders of our world we hope to help build greater respect for it, and in turn protect it. We believe this is not just a way to enjoy life, but also helps our relationships, local economies and ultimately the planet.

By enabling each of us to share our experiences and document the world’s adventures, we’re planning to create the definitive guidebook to the outdoors. And by building the best outdoor map, we’re making it much easier to plan and navigate safely and responsibly.

In your role as a Senior Interaction Designer at FATMAP your job will be to hands-on create the most relevant and engaging digital experience for people to go outdoors and live their adventure - from the moment they look for a place to go, to the moment they want to share their adventure story, and the entire journey in between.
