Paul, founder of Human here. We chose the term "join" because it really feels like we're joining forces. One of the reasons why are so excited about this is the cultural fit and shared vision between both teams. We started Human for a reason and Mapbox is just as mission driven. Glad that our team and app can now be part of that.

Some more background on the why: https://www.mapbox.com/blog/human-mapbox/

I'd be happy to answer any questions.

Can you describe how money/shares/options get traded in a deal like this? Do you get cash for your shares/options or do you get shares/options in Mapbox or a mix of both?

Yes, that's how it works ;). Unfortunately I can't share anything about the deal terms.

What an incredible journey!
