Esri is seeking a map product engineer to help build layers, maps and content that are used for ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World. ArcGIS Living Atlas is the online GIS of the world, containing maps, layers and data used by everyone across the ArcGIS platform. The successful candidate will manage the flow of data from source to online release for topics drawn from demographics, economics, businesses, traffic, and other statistical data sets. These layers power Esri products that help decision makers in all walks of life see the spatial patterns that are affecting their world.
Your work ensures the on-time release of hundreds of map layers through the course of the year. The successful candidate will balance efficiency, quality, creativity, flexibility, and risk in their daily work. These layers and maps in Living Atlas work across the ArcGIS platform, meaning they can be used in a variety of Esri products: ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Urban, and ArcGIS Business Analyst.
You will look for opportunities to improve the map products you deliver, through initial planning and information design of the data product, strong cartographic visualizations, informative pop-ups, intelligent labeling, and other capabilities. You will tackle new data collection and visualization challenges to produce innovative map services that are the foundation for web GIS. You will work in collaboration with many others under regularly scheduled release deadlines. You will update documentation of your work with each release. In between releases, you will work on innovative new layers, maps, dashboards, StoryMaps, infographics, and write blogs showcasing the content at work on real world examples.
Your work will also contribute to the ongoing improvements in Esri software, data, and location services. Your experiences in using and creating these data sets for mapping, analytic and infographic uses will be shared back with various software development teams as appropriate.
