(Senior) Geospatial Developer – Berlin

About Orbica

Orbica is a specialist digital geography company that develops innovative, cross-industry location data solutions, services, and products. We pride ourselves on being pioneers of the location data frontier and our purpose is to enhance billions of lives through the power of geography – no small feat. Orbica has offices in Germany and New Zealand and as geographers should, we work internationally.

We’re a tight-knit team that thrive on exploring unknown technological territories using open source and proprietary software, with a primary focus on extracting value from data and smart visualisation in engaging and powerful mediums. If you like a fun, collaborative work environment, as well as opportunities to develop your career and table tennis skills, Orbica is the fit for you. We have a plethora of super cool projects behind us: we’re spearheading location intelligence and data visualisation while working with a wide range of spatial data.

About your Role

Orbica is looking for a full time (Senior) Geospatial Developer in Berlin. You must live and breathe geospatial as well as have full stack development skills to match. You’ll be working within our team of Geospatial Developers to deliver geospatial services to ensure that the company can support our clients and deliver industry leading high-quality projects.

We partner closely with our clients and value strong collaboration to take their location data solutions to new heights. You’ll need to be a good listener, quick learner, inquisitive, open to ideas, have a “can-do” ethos, a sense of humour, and be adept at developing tailored solutions for tricky problems. Agile experience is highly desirable and an eye for visualisation and a creative slant that adds the X-factor to our creations will give you the edge we’re looking for.

About your Skills

We would prefer our (Senior) Geospatial Developer to be qualified in geography, computer science, or similar and have a minimum of 3 years of relevant experience, but frankly, we’d be more impressed by an enthusiastic and inquisitive self-starter than someone who ticks all the boxes.

On the geospatial side these include proficiency using the open-source geospatial stack, the full range of Esri software, spatial data analysis theory and tools, and data visualisation techniques.

  • Substantial knowledge of Esri suite and/or QGIS
