Location: Asheville, NC (remote until post-pandemic)

Economic Geospatial Analyst/Planner

Are you a total data geek? Do you enjoy creating visuals to simply explain complex concepts?

Urban3 is looking for a planner/GIS analyst with 3+ years experience (a combination of university, internship, and/or professional work is acceptable) to join our Asheville office. Our ideal candidate has experience working on strategic design projects, as well as an ability to communicate clearly through visual language (tables, diagrams, models, and maps).

Candidates will have at least a bachelor’s degree in economics, planning, data visualization, GIS, geography, urban design, architecture, or landscape architecture. Expert proficiency with GIS, Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, and Excel is required. Experience with Sketchup, Blendr, and Python and/or Javascript will elevate those candidates. Those with masters degrees in Planning, Urban Design, Data Visualization or Geography will be given preference.

This job is for someone who is extremely curious, able to think at the macro and micro level about urban planning concepts, and who relishes working with challenging GIS-based projects.

The selected candidate must be willing to move to the Asheville, NC area once it is determined that our office will no longer be remote only.
