Are you a force for good? Do you desire to be the be the resident expert and champion of our GIS strategy? Does the opportunity to devote your talents to a cause much greater than yourself excite you? The Arbor Day Foundation is a place where you can do work that matters, with people who care. As we say at the Foundation: life is short, love where you work.

As one of the world's largest conservation organizations, the Arbor Day Foundation inspires people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. We help others understand and use trees as a solution to global issues (like air quality, water quality, climate change, deforestation, poverty, and hunger) that are critical to survival.

The Arbor Day Foundation is seeking a GIS Lead Analyst to join our Technology team to own and execute the Foundation’s GIS strategy.

  • Experience with these technologies: ArcGIS, SQL, Microsoft Azure

  • Great work ethic. You’re self-driven and able to work independently or with a team. You figure things out and deliver systems of value.

  • Critical thinking skills. Ability to brainstorm, identify core functionality, determine impact on systems and processes will be needed for this role.

  • Growth Mindset. You love to explore, visualize and leverage new data sets.

You Will:

  • Guide teams on how to leverage GIS in support of their objectives and project goals.

  • Cultivate our spatial data sets, understanding and explaining their purpose, and managing their change and expansion over time.

  • Continually explore research, literature, and data sets to identify potential tools and resources which can increase the value and rigor of our work.

  • Own and maintain the Foundation's ArcGIS environment, building and supporting GIS-based apps, storymaps, and data layers.

Love Where You Work:

  • We're in this together. A culture focused on a genuine interest in the wellbeing of others, collaboration, and the intrinsic shared purpose to do what's right. We pride ourselves on the culture we've built. We love it, and we know you will too.

  • We care about your health. We offer competitive healthcare (health, dental, vision) coverage for you and your loved ones matched with a wellness incentives program.

  • We invest in your future. Company paid short-term and long-term disability, life insurance and 401k with company match are available.

  • We want you to unplug when needed. We believe in taking your time off without guilt, including the week between Christmas and New Years that we close our Lincoln Campus to recharge.

  • We know the little things matter. Team members receive a monthly transportation stipend, a fully stocked kitchen, and access to a plethora of learning and development opportunities.

  • We'll round out the experience. We put our culture first, and we host events and experiences throughout the year to show that we care about you (and your family).
