GIS Analyst - ( 240002LF )


Many of the world’s top engineers and scientists come together in our Water business because they view a community’s interaction with water a bit differently—as a single holistic system, rather than unconnected networks divided by jurisdictional boundaries. Working throughout the hydrologic cycle, we are delivering sustainable solutions to make sure water is where it should be and available when needed. Our experts guide our work with scientific rigor, an innovative spirit, and a vision for growth. Every day, we help communities improve, reuse, and protect this precious resource for future generations. By 2025 we’re hiring 2,000 people (like you) to join our team. Grow with us, H2O+U.

  • Balance a high level of creativity with adherence to established Stantec GIS standards and best practices.

  • Always be persistent and diligent about quality, both in one’s own work and the work of others.

  • Actively engage in the greater GIS community, both locally and beyond, staying aware of the state of practice, new tools and technology, and opportunities for growth.

  • Adapt to changes in project schedule, scope, and cost, and be willing to work non-traditional hours as needed.

  • Maintain a high regard for personal safety and the safety of others.
