About Wikiloc

The goal of Wikiloc is to help you share and discover GPS trails and waypoints from around the World in an easy way.

Team

Jordi Ramot

CEO

Software Engineer specialized in the geospatial interoperability field. I graduated with a MS 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 thousands of outdoor enthusiasts sharing our best outdoor routes from anywhere around the planet.

On the personal side I'm a vegetarian, I like statically-typed languages like Java, dynamic languages like Python, Unix-like operating systems and when not in the office I like to be in the outdoors trail running, back-country skiing or mountain biking.

Montserrat Jordi

COO

For over 10 years I've been working managing teams and projects in the automotive and industrial sector, helping companies to innovate and to design new processes.

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 of the product productivity of the automotive business unit of TRETY and also in charge of the Industrialization, Production and Costs Department at INOXPA. I like traveling, all kind of outdoor sports and music.

We hope you find Wikiloc useful and that it helps you getting the most out of your GPS. You can help us to improve the service by letting us know what you think of it. Happy trails!

Noemí Morales

Marketing

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 began in Caixa Girona with projects related to stock markets, then building the credit department in Laboratorios Hipra, SA, after that I was in charge of the Marketing Dpt. in Inoxpa, SA and currently in Wikiloc.

I love discovering new things: a country, a landscape, a book, a song …

I hope that if you practice and enjoy outdoor activities, Wikiloc will become an essential tool for your adventures.

Jose Molina

Lead Engineer

Since 2005, my career has always been related to GPS, mapping 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 mobile applications with GPS, location-based services (LBS), and worked as a professor 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 UdG.

With over 7 years of professional experience I have always been in the web environment: development and maintenance of web applications and applications for small devices.

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

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

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.
