Wikiloc

Authentic Outdoor Experiences


We believe we are moving to a fundamentally more exciting future where humanity spend more time together enjoying the outdoors.

Our mission is to help people have fun doing outdoor activities. We build apps with free beautiful maps and a volunteered geographic information platform to discover and share the best selection of outdoor experiences on the planet.

Team

Jordi Ramot

CEO

Software Engineer specialized in the geospatial interoperability field. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Computer Science from Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.

In 2006 I started to work on Wikiloc in my spare time and now we're a growing community of millions of outdoor enthusiasts sharing trails in 190+ countries.

On the personal side I'm a vegetarian and when not in the office I like to be in the outdoors trail running, back-country skiing or mountain biking.

Montserrat Jordi

COO

I hold a Master's degree in Engineering Management, a bachelor's degree in Electronics Engineering and I'm a certified Quality Auditor.

Before joining Wikiloc I was in charge to improve products, processes and costs as a Productivity Manager in the automotive sector and as an Industrial Manager in the industry sector. I enjoy working with teams, having goals and be creative solving challenges.

I like to ride a mountain bike and the snow sports, music and clay modelling.

Happy trails!

Jose Molina

Lead Engineer

Since 2005, my career has always been related to GPS, digital maps and its applications. Before joining Wikiloc, I was part of the Geographic Information Service and Remote Sensing (SIGTE) in the UdG, developing GeoWeb projects using open source technologies, spatial databases and OGC standards.

I've also developed GPS enabled mobile apps for feature phones, location-based services (LBS) and worked as a lecturer of Spatial Databases at the Master UNIGIS.

Wikiloc combines my passion for technology, cartography and enjoying nature discovering new places with my GPS.

Josep Rubio

Mobile Engineer

I hold a Computer Science degree from the Universitat de Girona.

My career has always been in the web environment: development and maintenance of web applications and programming small GPS enabled devices.

My hobbies are reading and practicing outdoor sports (biking, hiking and running).

I hope you can find a trail on Wikiloc which helps you to achieve all the goals you challenge yourself with.

Noemí Morales

Finances

Bachelor in Business Administration from the UB and Master in Marketing Management from ESADE. Professionally, the projects I've worked on range from the financial to the marketing area.

I love discovering new things: a country, a landscape, a book, a song … I hope that if you practise and enjoy outdoor activities Wikiloc will become an essential tool for your adventures!

Pau Dominkovics

Mobile Engineer

The first computer that came into my home was a x286 and since then I started to love programming so much that I always felt it was only a hobby. Maybe that's why I studied computer science as a second career.

With the arrival of smart-phones my fun multiplied with its possibilities. My first serious test was "Board Games" for Android & iOS and it was a surprising success.

Wikiloc allows me to combine this passion with another great passion, the outdoor activities. Being an user and a creator of the same product is a great pleasure and enriching.

Mariano Trebino

Platform Engineer

Graduated in 2014 as a computer engineer and studying a MS in Computer Engineering from Universitat de Girona.

I am passionate about researching and problem solving. I am currently developing a research project pioneering core technologies such as Scala, Spray, Akka, Docker and Cassandra and complementary new technologies like Ansible, Grafana & Graphite.

In Wikiloc I combine my biggest passions, outdoor sports, computer science and research.

Ivan Bianchi

Platform Engineer

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering and about to finish the Master’s degree in Computer Engineering at Universitat de Girona

I'm a big-data enthusiast and nowadays I am focused on scalable and highly available tools such as Apache Cassandra and graph databases like TitanDB.

Computer science has become a passion and at Wikiloc I have the perfect place to overcome daily challenges and expanding my skills even with side projects like perfecting email delivery and learning how to deal with large amounts of data in new interesting databases.

Advisors

Manuel Roca

Happy entrepreneur in both personal and professional life. In the professional side I co-founded atrapalo.com 13 years ago in which I'm the CEO of the company. I also co-founded with my wife a social crowd-funding project, miaportacion.org, to help people under risk of being socially excluded with their basic needs.

But my biggest project is my BIG family with 7 children to whom I teach values like effort, perseverance, initiative, spirit of service that are so valuables for every aspect of life either personally or professionally although I learn much more from them.

Apart from that I'm a passionate of cycling, skiing and back-country skiing.
