SUEZ is seeking a GIS Co-Op/Intern student for our New Jersey municipal water contracts (TMP013). The GIS role exists with the Smart Technology Team, which focuses on the application of new approaches to managing water and wastewater infrastructure. Seeks full time co-op or part time internship candidate for the fall term. The monetary compensation for this role is $23/ hour.
Who are we looking for? We are looking for a collaborative individual to manage data, edit data, develop apps, design dashboards, and manage online content for our New Jersey Environmental Services contracts. This position is remote, with the option to conduct field data collection with GPS units. All applicants must provide their own computer and workstation. AWS will be provisioned through the company for access to GIS. The student will work alongside the existing GIS team and receive coaching and mentoring throughout the Co-Op program.
Summary of Tasks: Work will be focused on up to six SUEZ contracts in New Jersey. The purpose for this position is to maximize the benefit of utility-wide GIS. Data must reliably meet operational and daily system maintenance needs. Asset data in GIS must be accurate “positionally” (in the right place), descriptively (describes the asset appropriately), and temporally (up-to-date). Common tasks will include reviewing engineering drawings, administering GPS data collection, versioned editing, and mining data from a wide variety of sources, i.e. customer service, water quality, and/or maintenance management software. Other duties may include a combination of broad analytical skills and detail-oriented work.
Required Skills and Experience:
Background in earth science, geology, geography, planning, engineering, computer and information science, and/or mathematics
Prior relevant work experience
Effective time management and (verbal and graphic) communication skills
Keen attention to detail and an analytical approach to problem solving
Strong Desktop ArcGIS and/or ArcGIS Pro skills
Basic understanding of geodatabases, ie. knowledge of versioning, user and role management
Ability to read engineering drawings and updating GIS from as-builts
Data management and wranging skills: compiling, cleaning, validating data from various sources
Commanding Desktop GIS tasks for vector data, such as creating maps and map apps, querying data, and editing data, ie. joining tables, transforming datasets, conducting spatial or network analysis, and using model builder
Python skills for analysis and development
Cartography and visualization using ESRI, Tableau, or PowerBi dashboards
Web map authoring and app development to help clients or field crews visualize phenomena inherent in systems or summarize statistics for systems
Geodatabase administration and maintenance, i.e. querying, SQL views, exporting/ importing schema, replicating geodatabases, publishing feature layers, packaging and sharing maps
Interest in the water industry
After 6-months of work on the project, feature data will be more up-to-date and descriptively accurate in select project locations. The GIS Co-Op student will work on the backlog of GIS as-builts and red-lined correction requests. The student will add to and update descriptive data for assets. If GPS data has been collected, the student will review data collection and make adjustments to system data. The student will contribute to improving data, building apps, building dashboards and sharing information with municipalities on topics such as water quality, hydraulic modeling, consumption, and maintenance activities, as needed.
