We are looking for a GIS Analyst to execute on a growing workload of geodata creation and conversion projects. Yes this may mean some digitizing, but it also means a whole lot of problem solving and mastering the transcription and conversion of inbound source data into meaningful map-based information. The data sources vary. They can be scanned engineering drawings, CAD files, GIS files, Spatial Databases, Google Earth files...you get the picture.

This is a unique opportunity...we want someone who is going to come in and operate at times as a solo GIS department, at times with some data crunching support staff, at times serving GeoDevelopers. You need to be confident and very comfortable in any number of desktop GIS worlds, be able to take a data puzzle under the gun and stick with it until it is solved. And then be willing to document the process and return to perfect and automate it. You should be highly organized, able to recognize patterns in messy data, and love to learn new tech. SQL Queries should be familiar at least. You need to like to talk to clients...and colleagues who are developers. You like to network and be engaged in a professional community both online and in person. You love being part of a small team and don't mind the variety of demands that pop up. You offer ideas and constructively criticize and challenge peers without being confrontational. You have a great sense of humor. You are curious and capable around amazon servers and map services and databases. You are as happy digitizing fiber networks as you are doing 'spatial analysis'...and OK with being a go to data processing expert for data cleansing, geocoding, standardization spatial append, etc. This is not production line work - you have to figure out process and take projects start to finish - sometimes new ones every week. Oh, and you like making maps, both static and interactive - cartography counts.We'd like to see at least an undergraduate degree in Geography/GIS, ideally some scripting and database exposure, and 3 to 5 years of professional experience. This is a mid-level position with a very big upside for career growth for the right person. You will be a key contributor on a small team with growing responsibilities over time.
