A few notes for potential applicants
This is an awesome work environment that is supportive of people taking the time to learn new skills and usually can provide a very flexible schedule (field conditions permitting). This position should have plenty of opportunities for growth.
The organization works with a much broader range of technologies than listed in the announcement. If you have analogous skills, but not exactly what's mentioned in the announcement, please apply. The position mentions ArcGIS and R, but they also use QGIS, command line tools, tons of Python, Google Earth Engine, etc, etc. They're not looking specifically for a programmer, but for someone with a good balance of skills (if you also happen to be a programmer - great!). Make sure to mention the skills listed in the position description in your application, but don't worry if they aren't your strongest spatial abilities.
