Mapbox (mapbox.com) offers commercial geo services. Many of them use OpenStreetMap data and involve large open-source efforts. Mapbox is a main contributor to the Mapnik renderer project, it helped create the new web editor iD and it created Tilemill, the software used to design the OpenStreetMap map style. Mapbox employs a data team actively improving the map.
Tools and products
- TileMill - a desktop map design and rendering studio
- CartoCSS - CSS-inspired language for styling maps
- MBTiles - an efficient tile storage schema for mobile apps

They also provide various tilesets that can be used by customers:
