Title: GIS Specialist III, (13381, EIT)
Location: Montgomery County, MD USA
The Montgomery County Planning Department is looking for a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialist III to join the IS/GIS Team in the Information Technology & Innovation (ITI) Division.
The primary focus of this position is the maintenance of the County’s parcel fabric but may extend into other data maintenance workflows such as zoning and addressing. Candidates with experience in reviewing, interpreting, and converting legal property descriptions, deeds, probates, and other legal conveyances into the GIS database will be given preference.
The incumbent must be comfortable working in a complex distributed database environment with highly normalized data structures. Additionally, the position must be able to support existing dynamic, web-based mapping applications as well as develop and support new applications as needed.
The ideal candidate will be a team player with an excellent ability to perform technical tasks and problem solve independently, yet have the interpersonal skills needed to interact and communicate successfully with ITI’s internal and external customers – senior staff, planners, colleagues, and the public. This position reports to the GIS Manager.
The Montgomery County Planning Department, part of M-NCPPC, aims to improve quality of life by conserving and enhancing the natural and built environment for current and future generations. We are located in downtown Silver Spring, convenient to the Capital Beltway and public transit.
