CARTO's office is located in the center of Madrid, Spain
CARTOchats are 20-minute talks—led by an outside speaker or a CARTO staff member—that take place frequently in the Madrid office. The subjects of the chats have covered diverse topics such as 3D printers, nonprofit initiatives, open data, and observations of the language used in Tweets. Prior to the talks, the Madrid Team is treated to lunch—which usually features food representative of the speaker’s hometown.
Situated on the “Broadway of Madrid,” CARTO’s Spanish offices are inside a brick building called the Palace of the Press Association—an office space true to its name with chandeliers, frescoes, and marble arches. The central location includes local pubs, where employees often gather on Friday afternoons to welcome the weekend with tapas and drinks. The team is also known to celebrate employee birthdays with treats—and make cocktails when they surpass monthly goals.
“Working at CARTO Madrid really makes you feel part of something big. The open and sharing culture we have here makes you feel good about coming to work.”

“One of my favorite CARTO memories was the train ride to our company-wide summit in Malaga. Although many of us were meeting for the first time, there was instant camaraderie. I’m not sure how it started, but each time someone entered our car, we all sang 'Happy Birthday.' It was a joke that carried through the week."
