Opening for GIS generalist / spatial IT engineer at Kartoza
Posted by: Gavin Fleming | in Jobs | 7 years, 6 months ago | Comments

Kartoza is seeking GIS staff. We have a range of projects and challenges and will tailor the post to suit the ideal candidate.

Kartoza does a variety of work with a strong spatial component for a local and international clientèle and we're also working on our own ideas. We do desktop GIS, web map servers, enterprise deployments, cartography, spatial data management, training and support. We use FOSS tools and produce mostly FOSS outputs. We have a very 'open' philosophy.

You will be organised, driven, productive, enjoy working in a changeable, informal environment and enjoy learning. Working in teams with software developers will appeal to you. If you consider yourself to be a power-user you must be comfortable with scripts and the command line. If you're not a power user yet you must want to become one.

As this is a small company, you will be required to take on multiple projects and manage your time effectively. You will be anchored in an office in Paarl with the possibility of telecommuting. We have a fairly flat structure where your opinion counts. Your initiative and input into internal projects will be rewarded.

You should find your time at Kartoza enjoyable, rewarding and fulfilling, with a positive work-life balance. The equipment we provide won't slow you down and we have progressive terms of service.
