GIS Technician IIIs perform advanced specialized work in the use of Geographic Information Systems. Please see below for specific information on the current vacancies. This list may also be utilized for future GIS Technician III vacancies.
Within the Portland Bureau of Transportation: The GIS Technician III position in the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) Business Technology Services Division will provide lead work direction to a GIS team which has primary responsibility for the maintenance of PBOT's GIS-based asset inventory.

As a lead, the GIS Technician III assigns tasks, tracks the status of mapping projects, develops and implements QA/QC processes, establishes and documents best practices, and contributes to process improvement.

For example, the Bureau utilizes GIS as the primary system of record and tool for levels of service and conducting asset condition assessments on the entire portfolio. The position is also responsible for facilitating the Bureau's as-built drawing and asset enrollment processes and often serves as the "go to" for asset portfolio questions. Coordinating with other staff, this position also provides support to other PP&R work units with GIS requirements.
