Position Summary & Major Responsibilities:

Telvent Canada Ltd has a career opportunity in Calgary, Alberta office for a motivated individual to join our team to help provide consulting and analytical GIS services. You will report to the GIS Practice Lead within the Telvent Petroleum GIS Competency Center and will be responsible for providing senior analytical services to energy clients. Specifically, you will be required to help architect data and GIS solutions, acquire and manage information, analyze and visualize information, mentor junior staff, and communicate value to clients.

You can script and program like a guru, but you choose to use programming to aid with your analysis, not to create applications or product. You understand ESRI technology very well and know how to apply it to create value for clients. Telvent works in a team environment, whether it is internal on projects or onsite with a client. This is great news for you, as you have strong interpersonal skills and enjoy working directly with clients.

Your oil and gas experience shows, as you not only understand the business, but also you have built strong relationships with clients. You are a familiar face in the Geomatics community and have a passion for geospatial information management. You are personal and enjoy mentoring the ‘up comers’.

You can firefight with the best of them, but you prefer to have a solid plan. In fact, you may have taken the odd Project Management course to help improve your likelihood of success on projects.

Education & Experience Preferred:

  • Bachelor of Science degree or technical diploma in GIS, Geography, or Geomatics Engineering. Relevant job experience will also be considered in lieu of a degree.
  • Minimum 5 years direct GIS experience in last 6 years.
  • Significant experience with ESRI 9.x product suite including ArcGIS Desktop and ArcSDE.

  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills.
  • Functional experience in data models, data manipulation, spreadsheet, and database applications.

  • Ability to work in a highly dynamic consulting environment with minimal direct supervision.
  • GISP or willingness to obtain.

Some travel will be required. Start date is targeted for January 9, 2007.

Remuneration is commensurate with experience and capability. Telvent is an equal opportunity employer that offers competitive salaries, excellent benefits, and a challenging work environment.
