Are you excited about GIS?


We are!  Multnomah County, one of Oregon's largest public agencies employer, is committed to implementing enterprise GIS and improving the ability to serve our community, our partners and our employees. The County is actively developing and implementing an Enterprise GIS based on modern server technology, connecting people with the geographic information they need to better perform their business functions. Implementation of this strategic design is aimed at optimizing workflows by reducing data and software redundancy, providing real-time geointelligence, providing better data security and integrating important information assets.


The Senior GIS Analyst will be working hand-in-hand with the GIS IT Project Manager and other City and County agencies in developing standards, best practices, and procedures to enhance all GIS services. The Analyst will be a key member of the team, helping to lead the transition from a heavy mapping environment organization to a robust and sophisticated web-based GIS server environment.
