We provide solutions and insight for an incredible array of clients. As such, a healthy desire to acquire domain expertise beyond the immediate technical task is welcome and encouraged.

Curiosity

We also stand behind the work we deliver - knowing that clients will use our work to make critical decisions. We look for people who stand behind their word and the work they produce.

Confidence

Nearly all projects we deliver require some measure of problem solving. Crucially we are looking for individuals who are able to research, develop and test alternate approaches to complex problems, typically under a deadline.

Creativity

Data is cool! We all enjoy working developing insights into the processes that underpin our society. We are passionate about our work and producing fantastic results. We are looking for individuals with similar attitudes.

Enthusiasm

Critical thinking is essential to our success. The ability to analyze complex information and make informed decisions is crucial in delivering effective solutions to our clients.

Critical Thinking

All the projects that we work on are technical, so your technical capacity is essential. We primarily use GIS, Python and Excel, but other skills and programming languages (Javascript!) are also highly valued.

Technical Prowess

The ideal candidate will possess strong technical, problem solving and communication skills, and have a demonstrated ability to leverage cutting-edge tools and technologies to deliver innovative solutions.  If you are passionate about driving change with spatial data, and you possess a strong commitment to excellence, we encourage you to apply today! If you don’t see yourself in the jobs below, or nothing is posted right now, but think you still would be an excellent fit for our team, let us know! We are always flexible in our hiring for great people.

Current Positions

While we are not presently hiring for a specific role, we are always interested in hearing from people who would be a great member of our team! We would love to hear from individuals who are passionate about GIS, problem solvers, and love working in collaborative environments. Essentially, individuals who are technically skilled and able to apply their knowledge in innovative and evolving contexts.

 

Specific skills / expertise / experience we are looking for from Junior level applicants:

  • Educational background in GIS, Remote Sensing, Geography, Computer Science or Urban Planning, or commensurate experience

  • 1 year of work experience in a related field

  • Experience working with ArcGIS’s product suite

  • Python and/or other programming language skills

  • Ability to work in-office (Metro Vancouver based)

 

Bonus skills/interests that we would value:

  • Interest in land use planning, urban policy, and/or climate policy

  • Working experience with census data, land use regulations, zoning regulations, BC Assessment data,  housing needs assessments and/or population and employment forecasts

  • Working experience with emissions modelling

  • Consulting experience

  • Curiosity and a demonstrated ability to be adaptive and able to learn new skills in an applied setting

 

For Senior level applicants, we are looking for all of the above and an established practice (i.e. would be bringing clients to the firm).

At LGeo we offer an employee-owned, flexible and inclusive work environment with generous pay and good benefits. We work in a dynamic practice area (applications of geospatial data to urban planning) that is constantly evolving being driven both by local and senior government policy as well as shifting data contexts. Our team is thus creative, collaborative, and always seeking to innovate as we navigate new challenges in deadline-driven work! If you enjoy collaborative, in-person working environments working on multiple related projects then this is the job for you.         

 

Our salary range for Junior GIS positions is 65k-75k, dependent on relevant experience.
