About us

We established Maritime Optima AS in April 2018, and we are privately funded by serial tech entrepreneurs and shipping investors. We are also supported by Innovation Norway. We were awarded the Copernicus Award in 2018 and the Microsoft Startup program in October 2019. We work closely with the users and many global shipping companies while developing our products.

The first MVP of Maritime Optima (now ShipAtlas) was launched in August 2020. Today ShipAtlas has more than 85 000 registered users around the world. In October 2022, we launched ShipIntel for maritime professionals, which is rapidly growing.

We believe in knowledge-driven maritime intelligence based on quality data, and ShipIntel is a software product for the shipping industry which aids them in making more informed choices. This is mainly done through a solid data foundation and with manual enrichment by users, which they can share with colleagues. By intuitively presenting the data and making it possible to “play” with it, we help our customers to utilize their company’s collective knowledge.

To build these products, we need a great team ourselves! Our team today has solid domain knowledge and very skilled developers. We are a team of 3 persons working with marketing, customer success, and sales, and in 2023 we will build and grow the marketing, customer success, and sales section.
