Do you specialize in making the non-spatial spatial? Do you enjoy leveraging the power of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) to empower your maps? Can you automate your mapping world by writing Python scripts? Are you an expert in working with the ArcGIS Enterprise GIS environment to develop web maps and applications? If so, Come Join our Team with the Department of Land Use and Transportation as a Geographic Information Systems Analyst!
The Operations and Maintenance division is looking for a highly skilled and self-motivated Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analyst that will provide professional-level support to end users of GIS data within the department. Incumbents in this role analyze a variety of statistics and spatial data to create diagrams, illustrations and maps. They also develop applications using GIS technology, which includes translating the application specifications into programs, and recommend program actions based on the results of geographic data analysis.
The Ideal Candidate
The ideal candidate will be an expert in data management, web map and app integrations using ESRI Enterprise GIS. Working with datasets from a standard SQL server to SDE SQL server in real time or near real time is required to meet the needs of the division. This often requires competency in reading, creating and maintaining queries, views, functions, triggers and stored procedures with SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). Scripting GIS automation with Python is a must.
Experience in local government supporting road or transportation asset datasets is preferred, but not required.
