This position provides GIS and technical computing support to the Center for Conservation Innovation (CCI) specifically, and Defenders of Wildlife more broadly, with priorities determined by the Director. The GIS and Computing Associate’s time will be divided approximately 2/3 GIS and 1/3 technical computing support. In the GIS domain, the associate will provide full-service mapping support and basic to intermediate geospatial analysis support. For example, the associate may create maps for Field Conservation staff that detail where road crossings should be installed to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions; for Renewables to guide solar development around desert tortoise habitat; or for Development to use in fundraising activities. In the technical computing domain, the associate will ensure the servers that host the CCI web applications are maintained, will update and maintain current applications and assist in the development of new applications. For example, the associate will ensure the elasticsearch database powering ESAdocs Search is maintained and develop new capabilities for that application. In both domains, the associate will work closely with Defenders staff to ensure project goals are understood and met. The associate will help CCI staff stay up-to-date on new developments in spatial and technical computing. Working with CCI staff, the associate will have opportunities to pursue research or development that aligns with their interests and our mission.
