Pre-Series A

Radar (https://www.onradar.com) is the location platform for mobile apps. We help companies build better products and make better decisions with location data.

Radar is defining a new category of developer platform. If Stripe is for payments and Twilio is for communications, Radar is for location.

Our team has backgrounds at companies like Foursquare and Uber. We are backed by Accel, Expa, Fuel Capital, and great angels including Greg Brockman (previously CTO at Stripe).

We're located in Union Square in New York City.

Why join us?
  • We just closed our seed round and we're growing rapidly. Radar is already installed on millions of devices, processing billions of locations per year.

  • We're defining a new category of developer platform: the location platform.

  • We are currently a team of three with backgrounds at companies like Foursquare and Uber. Our goal is to build one of the most technically proficient engineering teams in NYC, but also one of the most diverse and tight-knit.


Engineering at Radar
Engineering team and processes

We operate on weekly sprints. Each team member has a high degree of flexibility, autonomy, and impact. We work hard, move extremely fast, and obsess over the details.

If you join the team, you'll have the chance to shape our process and culture moving forward.

Technical Challenges

On the frontend, we need to deliver a world-class (think Stripe-like) experience for developers. On the backend, we need to ingest massive amounts of location data, and help developers analyze and act on that data at scale.

You'll face interesting product design and scaling challenges from day one.

Projects you might work on
  • For mobile engineers: Design, build, and distribute our iOS SDK (https://github.com/radarlabs/radar-sdk-ios) and Android SDK (https://github.com/radarlabs/radar-sdk-android), installed on millions of devices and processing billions of locations per year. The Radar SDK abstracts away the challenges and cross-platform differences of location services on iOS and Android, allowing developers to add location context and tracking to their apps with just a few lines of code.

  • For backend engineers: Design, build, maintain, and scale our backend and API (https://www.onradar.com/documentation/api), processing billions of locations per year.

  • For frontend engineers: Design, build, and maintain the Radar web application. The Radar web app allows developers to view, analyze, export, and derive insights from the location data that they collect with the Radar SDK and API.
