We are always looking to enhance our team and network of contract technologists and designers with talented individuals who stand out in the fields of cartography, GIS, design technology, and interactive software development. If you are an interactive developer or designer who is excited about the intersection of design and technology - we’d love to hear from you, even if there isn’t an open role that feels like an exact fit. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a cover letter and links to your portfolio, github account, or anything else you’d like to show us.
You’re able to work well with multiple inputs from a variety of sources: creative direction, technical direction, production expediency, and client feedback. You’re friendly and courteous, good at finding ways to have fun under the pressure of deadlines, ready to sell your approach but also OK with our clients having the final say.
• Design and develop interactive maps for a variety of use cases, spanning consumer products, business tools, and purely artistic work
• Collaborate in small-team environments with designers, program directors, cartographic professionals, and other developers in the pursuit of said work
Skills & Experience
• Demonstrable experience designing and creating interactive maps and spatially-oriented experiences
• Adept and strong with both verbal and text-based communication (vc, slack, email software collaboration tools, etc)
• Ability to manage one’s own work across more than one project at a time. While we appreciate and value the benefits of focus, agency work often requires working for multiple clients at the same time.
• We are specifically hoping to find someone who’s worked on designing maps for a first-person / nav oriented view as opposed to a god’s eye view. First-person game designers might be as relevant / beneficial here as trained cartographers.
• Expert knowledge of modern GIS platforms and technologies, especially open-source tools like QGIS, PostGIS, and GDAL/OGR
