Make a Difference in Oregon's Natural Resources!
Help the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife fulfill its mission: To protect and enhance Oregon's fish and wildlife and their habitats for use and enjoyment by present and future generations.
Do you have advanced skills in Esri ArcGIS Software? Do you want to make a valuable contribution to conserving Oregon’s fish and wildlife, including lesser-known species and their habitats? Do you have high standards for customer service? If so, we are looking to fill a Conservation Strategy GIS Analyst at our Headquarters office in Salem.
If you enjoy the outdoors, Oregon’s Willamette Valley is the place for you. It is less than an hour from glaciated mountain peaks to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the massive Columbia River Gorge to the north. You can fish 365 days a year, and there is hunting for big game, waterfowl and game birds. The Oregon coast attracts thousands of people who clam, crab and fish in the ocean for halibut, salmon and tuna. The outdoor opportunities are endless when it comes to fish and wildlife in Oregon! If culture is what you seek, the Willamette Valley is the most populated area in Oregon and contains its three largest cities: Salem, Portland and Eugene, which are home to many museums and theaters. The Valley is also known for its vineyards, breweries and fantastic casual dining experiences.
