Position Description:

Company Background:

RedCastle Resources is an innovative, employee‐friendly company providing Remote Sensing, GIS, and Information Technology support to the US Forest Service and other land management agencies. For over 18 years, RedCastle Resources has provided on-site support to the Geospatial Technology and Applications Center - GTAC (formerly Remote Sensing Applications Center), assisting National Forests, Research Stations, and interagency partners by using advanced geospatial technologies for improved mapping, inventorying, and monitoring of natural resources.

Position Description:

The GIS Training Specialist is an on‐site RedCastle Resources contractor position within the Forest Service GTAC GIS Training Group. The GIS Training Group is a small unit, thus, the selected candidate will be involved in all aspects of the development and delivery of GIS training to adult learners. The successful candidate will have a strong background in GIS with extensive knowledge of current ESRI products including ArcGIS, ArcServer, ArcSDE, Spatial Analyst, 3D Analyst, and enterprise data services.

The individual should have the experience, aptitude and skills to successfully develop curriculum and teach complex information to adult learners. Excellent communication skills are a must—including technical writing, verbal communication, and public speaking and presentation skills. The candidate must have an aptitude and be willing to learn and use the unit’s training development software.

The successful candidate will be a good self‐learner and will be expected to teach subjects that are beyond his/her current technical competencies. Course delivery is typically via web conferencing so travel is minimal.

Education Requirement: In addition to the GIS experience described above, we require a minimum of a BA/BS degree - preferably in a natural resource area (e.g., soil science, forestry, biology, geography, ecology), teaching, training development, or technical area with emphasis in GIS.

Salary is dependent upon qualifications and experience. This position offers a benefits package which includes health insurance, company contribution 401K and profit sharing, long term disability insurance, and paid vacation, sick leave and holidays. A moving allowance may be provided.

Application review will start immediately and the position will start as soon as practical. Phone calls and email correspondence are welcome for gathering additional information.
