Careers at IKE

We take the needs of our customers very seriously, but not at the expense of having some fun along the way. Naturally, we have a laser-controlled foosball table. We proudly wear ‘Sharks with freakin lasers’ t-shirts – notwithstanding the marketing department’s ongoing concern about upsetting Austin Powers fans. We work hard – but celebrate successes. Everyone at ikeGPS can donate a day of their work time to a cause that they choose each year. We work in important & interesting markets: helping to keep the power on at electric utilities, deploying fiber in telecommunications and helping geospatial users collect better data, more quickly and more safely. And at the end of every day we get to make & sell really cool, industry-leading measurement solutions that our customers love.

We’re fortunate to have assembled some of the world’s best measurement tech minds alongside leading industry experts that support the needs of our customers every day. Please contact us any time if you can help us on the mission.
