Data Operator (50%)


GIM is an expert in geographic information. We help our customers to make better decisions and work more effectively through the use of spatial information. You can safely say that intelligent location software and the processing of geo-data is our passion. We are a growing company, believing in a self-steering culture and sustainable corporate responsibility. For the expansion of our product team, we are looking for a part time Data operator (50%) who will contribute to our flagship product Belmap. Belmap is a digital product that encompasses all Belgian addresses and buildings with a multitude of linked data properties and gives an elaborate description of characteristics and activities at any given location.

Below you will not find a standard vacancy, you will read a short story about where you will make the difference. Do you want work with us on a society in which geospatial data empower people to live better lives and make better decisions? Get in touch!

As a part-time (50%) data operator within GIM’s product team, I ensure the validation of our input geo-data to help our customers make better decisions based on clear location insights. I follow the right instructions and procedures to validate data on addresses, buildings and roads; you could say I know my way around a map quite well. I review these geo-data and search for correct information to evaluate whether proposed updates need to be accepted, corrected or declined. Because I am motivated by providing high-quality work and have a keen eye for detail, I can easily spot non-conformities in the data presented to me.

I am in close interaction with our customers and validate, process and respond to their geo-data requests. While I handle customer requests independently, I can count on our data steward for advice when more complex problems arise. I help our customers via e-mail or our service desk, sometimes via telephonic contact, and enjoy providing them with a swift service. Our customers know me as a communicative and positive-minded problem solver. I mostly communicate with them in English, but I can also use my understanding of the French and Dutch language to interpret short texts in documents that are sent to me.

I give feedback to my colleagues on the quality of the data I receive, so that they can set up possible improvements to upgrade the data quality. I also participate to team meetings where our processes and the data quality is discussed. Overall I contribute to the accuracy of our Belmap product through high-quality data, the satisfaction of our regular clients through a superb service, and the positive atmosphere in our product team by being a colleague everyone can count on.
