About HERE


HERE is a leader in navigation, mapping and location experiences and our technology is used in many places. If you’ve ever checked in on Facebook, you’ve used HERE. Or, if you have in-car navigation, you’ve probably had our help getting where you’re going -over two thirds of the worlds cars, from Ford to Ferrari, use our software. And every time you receive a package from Amazon or FedEx, we’ve helped guide it to your door. So many things we take for granted need location technology to make them work, and that’s what we provide at HERE with over 7500 colleagues across the globe. Location technology is a big part of our lives today, but will play an even bigger part of tomorrow. You’ve heard of the “Internet of things”, where the stuff around us -cars, fridges, thermostats and the like – are connected to give you real-time information – well, we’re helping to create the next generation of that! Our mission is enabling an Autonomous world for everyone! To learn more about HERE, visit or
