Conquest Maps Careers

Our Mission:

To help

1 Million

people travel more...

...by providing products that inspire and encourage them to set, track, and achieve their travel goals, whatever they may be for each individual.

We believe that travel is one of the greatest sources of fulfilment in life.

It teaches and develops traits such as curiosity, perseverance, and gratitude.

Exploring new places encourages growth and learning in each of us, which opens our minds, broadens our horizons, and gives us greater perspective.

Ultimately, travel is a powerful and necessary antidote to bigotry, ignorance, and limiting beliefs.

By helping others travel more, we believe we will help make the world a better place.

If you feel similarly and want to be a part of a team who helps others achieve their goals, then this might be a great place for you!

Our Team's Core Values

Our values are very important to how we operate as a team together in order to reach our mission. But they also happen to be some of the most important values that are developed through travel that ultimately result in more fulfilling travel experiences.

Learning & Growing

We actively develop ourselves personally and professionally, and constantly seek out new experiences.

Adapting & Thriving

We practice creative problem-solving, while confidently dealing with ambiguity.

Appreciating Today

We practice gratitude daily, and actively work to keep life’s happenings in the proper perspective.

Inspiring Others

We lead by example and rally together to achieve what’s never been done before.

Aiming High

We believe that every problem has a solution and persevere through adversity.

Creating Value First

We give without expecting something in return and seek to do the right thing at all times.

Taking Pride

We work to exceed expectations, attend to every detail, and create beauty and harmony in all that we do.

ABOUT CONQUEST MAPS

Based in Columbus, Ohio, Conquest Maps is dedicated to helping people live lives that are rich
in travel experiences and memories! We provide our customers with beautiful, personalized
maps and home decor to commemorate past travels and inspire future journeys.

Conquest Maps was born in 2012 out of a simple desire for my wife and I to start tracking our
own travel adventures. A high quality, nice-looking, pinnable map was not as easy to find as I
would have thought, so I made my own! I quickly realized that there were a lot of other people
with the same desire – and challenge – so I made a few more maps to sell on Etsy. Next thing I
knew, I had converted my basement into a wood shop, print house, shipping line, and office.

Long story short, we have now helped over 50,000 people track their travels with our products.
We’re a team of 12 people operating out of 13,000 square feet in a commercial facility on the
east side of Columbus, where we design, produce, warehouse, and ship our products
worldwide. Check us out on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lYE7Kl2ic4
