Erik Escoffier
Front-end engineering / Data Visualisation

Erik is an engineer specialised in interactive maps and data visualisations of all kinds. Coming from an applied arts school, where he graduated in multimedia user experience and development, he first started as a multimedia developer, tinkering with a broad set of technologies and languages (Javascript, node, Unity3D, Haxe, augmented reality, interactive installations…), then suddenly caught the cartography bug, and has been obsessed with the medium ever since. After working at CARTO as a community technologist, then at Vizzuality as a front-end engineer, he recently joined Global Fishing Watch, where he brings his expertise in mapping and dataviz front-end technologies. Erik enjoys mountains, running, running in the mountains, singing and playing the guitar.
