General Job Description:
Global Forest Watch Canada (GFWC) seeks enthusiastic and dedicated individuals with excellent technical and analytical skills for two full-time, paid summer student positions to support GFWC’s GIS and interactive mapping work (www.globalforestwatch.ca). The GIS Developer Technician will assist in: processing, analyzing, and cleaning GIS and remote sensing data; and obtaining and compiling data relevant to GFWC’s work. The Technician will support the development and launch of new GFWC applications, such as interactive maps and mobile apps that build upon Global Forest Watch tools for specific use in Canadian geographies. Other duties will include contributing to original policy-relevant analyses using data from the Global Forest Watch platform and related research products. A key aspect of this position is working closely in a small team environment, yet being able to work independently -- and therefore being flexible in assigned job duties.
