The Wilderness Society's Center for Landscape Analysis is hiring an Enterprise GIS Manager: https://home.eease.adp.com/recruit2/?id=10822301&t=1.
The Enterprise GIS Manager is a GIS professional position applying technological, visual design, and leadership skills to advance The Wilderness Society’s mission and campaigns to achieve land conservation and address real world public land management challenges. This position works in the nexus between science, communication, conservation advocacy, and public policy. The incumbent will apply his/her skills to help integrate spatial information with all TWS campaigns and departments to help achieve our conservation and philanthropic goals.
The primary role of this position is to envision, promote, develop, and maintain enterprise GIS systems and tools to support the availability and application of spatial information throughout the organization. The work involves staying abreast of enterprise GIS technological advancements, anticipating the value of desktop, enterprise and cloud based capabilities to TWS’ work, and promoting the use of those capabilities. The Enterprise GIS Manager helps develop and maintain the hardware and software systems necessary to support enterprise GIS, conducts product needs assessments, constructs products (solely or in partnership with users) to satisfy those needs, and trains users in product use and maintenance. Secondary roles of this position include assisting in the management of our enterprise license agreement with ESRI and supporting non-professional GIS staff at TWS through mentoring and technical skills transfer.
Though this position works closely with information technology, conservation, policy, communications, philanthropy, and science staff, the nature and importance of science work make clear the value of a scientific background to successfully fulfilling the responsibilities of this position. The Enterprise GIS Manager is a member of the team of scientists and GIS professionals making up the Center for Landscape Analysis (CLA)—a subset of a larger science team.
