Spatial Architect/Consultant – Data, Processes & Platforms

ABC Spatial team specialises on integrating spatial/GIS with most industries. Our work varies a lot as all our customers have different needs (local and global customers). We work closely with wider ABC and our projects are very exciting and rewarding. We cover the globe - New Zealand, Australia, Asia, LATAM, Europe, US/Canada and Africa.

Esri is one of the key toolsets, but we do work on all GIS tools – it is customer’s choice after all. Our core team is highly experienced and willing to provide you strong mentoring and professional growth on our exciting industry. CAD/BIM is also an important part of our integration – as it is closely related to GIS and part of the solutions that we provide covering 3D, 4D and more. We are also working closely with innovation solutions around IoT/sensors, Metaverse, XR and GeoAI.

We have experience on integrating spatial with IT systems, but spatial is still considered a new business within ABC and with all things that are new, there is energy and excitement around what we're feels shiny and fresh, and opportunities loom tall around us. With all the above in mind, we're looking for a Junior to mid-level Consultant/Specialist who is highly experienced in GIS (specifically Esri platforms) and who is happy to wear many different hats and span a variety of things. You're someone who's happy to embrace a challenge of doing 'everything' - which means, you are keen to engage and learn all things spatial. So, yes, we feel like a start-up - but without the usual business risk and uncertainty that comes when you're starting something up and competing with established companies.

ABC is the benchmark in all markets and spatial is one of the markets you want to watch and see what we do. We're looking for someone who is a hands-on go-getter willing to grow on consulting and engagement with customers. You'll be working not only on multiple projects, but also in a pre-sales capacity to influence prospective customers and, given this, you'll be someone who enjoys building relationships with prospective customers and who is able to provoke and articulate the commercial value of Spatial solutions in a variety of industries and market segments. You will be able to design GIS solutions with hands-on knowledge on spatial programming capability, configuration and administering capability (web and mobile web apps/maps) and GIS analysis skills.

We are prioritising our search on finding Australia and New Zealand citizens and permanent residents but finding people who have this broad capability is rare (no pressure!) ...given this, overseas candidates are encouraged to apply. As an Accredited Employer, we can assist with Visas.
