I spent the end of last week in Munich and the weekend in Paris. It was a great trip, but I was a little thrown off. I travel a good amount within the US, and I didn’t realize how much location-based services have become a part of my routine when I visit a new city. I’m constantly using my iPhone for Google Maps, Yelp, Foursquare, Twitter, and a few other apps—all of which use GPS to help me make the most of my time in the city. In France and Germany my iPhone doesn’t get data, and free Wi-Fi is pretty tough to find except for at Starbucks. Location-based services are only becoming more and more essential to everyday life, which is why I’m interested in Emeryville, CA based Location Labs. They’re an Inc. 500 company that “provides advanced location-based technologies and scalable and secure software platforms that allow third-party developers to build applications and services that can remotely locate more than 150 million devices.” That’s led to a 655% three-year growth rate and $7.9 million in annual revenue last year.

Locating Jobs

While the companies like Foursquare, Yelp, Twitter, and Facebook get all of the press for what they’re doing with location-based services, Location Labs stays out of the spotlight to some extent. The reason for this is that the software that they build is for mobile phone developers, not consumers. Although you may actually use apps based on Location Labs products, you’d probably never know it. However, if you were a mobile app developer, you’d probably be much more familiar with names like Geofencing, Universal Location Service, and Sparkle Platform. If you want to dig deep into the world of location-based services, then a job at Location Labs would be well worth considering. If you take a look at their Job postings, you’ll see opportunities like Technical Writer, Front-end Web Developer, Product Data Analyst, and Smartphone Developer Evangelist. Most of these jobs require some pretty strong technical skills, so give them a close look.

    This really is some of the most interesting stuff going on with mobile phone technology right now. And it’s when you’re in the unknown places, especially abroad, that you need it most! I know when I lived in Japan I had a great phone, but it lacked GPS. I could have saved myself so much trouble trying to figure out “where I was” on the map if only I had it!
