Our Core Business Values

We operate on a daily basis using the following set of core values developed over years of working in the GIS software industry with our global, diverse user community.

  1. We believe in customer-driven software development. Our customers are the experts in GIS: the scientists with the know-how, the surveyors and software developers that know what they need. We listen to them.
  2. We believe in doing good for others. At Blue Marble, we try every day to find ways to do something good. We want to make a positive impact on our customers, our local community, and our fellow citizens of the globe. We have an international user base. Therefore, we are all connected.
  3. We believe in equal rights. We believe black lives matter. We believe women should be on equal footing with men. We believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and equality.
  4. We are committed to employee success. We are committed to our employees for the long haul, meaning we are committed to their work/life balance. We want our employees to enjoy coming to work and being a part of the Blue Marble team.
  5. We love GIS. We love technology. We enjoy the challenge of developing and improving cutting-edge software that not only solves business problems but solves technical challenges in a user-friendly, powerful interface.
  6. We are committed to Maine. We are a Maine company and we believe in the capabilities and strengths of Mainers. We feel this gives us a unique perspective and edge as a company from one of the more rural areas of the United States. Maine has a rich history in survey and GIS. If you are interested in living and working in Maine you can do that at Blue Marble. Otherwise, if you’re ever in Maine, look us up. We would love to meet you.
