Chart your own GIS career.
Find out what GIS at Resource Data is like.
A growing field with room to grow.
You don’t need a degree in GIS to excel in this growing field. Many of our team members were drawn to the technology while using it in previous jobs like fighting wildfires, tracking caribou herds, or mapping the ocean floor and decided to pursue a career in it.
With the variety of GIS work you can do here, there’s plenty of room to grow. Our friendly team’s depth of experience means you can always find the support you need to venture outside your existing skillsets and try something new. Do you like a lot of short or medium-term projects to keep things interesting? You can do that here. Prefer a long-term assignment where you can dig in and get to know your client? You can do that here, too.
My career at Resource Data has been highlighted by the diversity of projects that I’ve worked on. Something that I really enjoy seeing is how GIS provides solutions for so many different industries. From major oil companies to a small local commercial real estate business, there’s a ton of potential and benefit from implementing the types of services that we provide.David Saleh
Sr. GIS Programmer, Houston
Always a new challenge. Always variety.
At Resource Data, we use GIS to help clients in a huge range of fields. We’ve developed story maps that helped rural communities make decisions on important infrastructure projects and guided redistricting for a major city. We’ve helped modernize GIS data storage and workflows. We’ve automated a reporting system for snowplows, cleaned up network data for utility companies, and built apps that track and report on wildfire smoke to help improve safety and health in nearby communities.
I have never been in a position like the one at Resource Data. Here I am constantly working with different industries, learning new systems, and gaining experience that would be next to impossible in other GIS jobs.Leah Bower
