About us

The GraphHopper Directions API was launched in 2014 and two years later we founded the GraphHopper GmbH in Munich, Germany and a few months later with additional offices in Berlin and Hoyerswerda. We are a company with organic growth and only this way we can ensure staying an independent software provider with the focus to make our customers happy.

Our mission is to build the routing software stack of the future with lots of open source software and utilizing open data like OpenStreetMap. The team works from remote and without overwork. This, the work on our popular open source projects and our independence makes us an attractive employer.
