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. In order to support the growth of our flagship product, Belmap, we are looking for a Geodata Engineer.
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. Through Belmap, retailers can for instance understand where their customers live, work and shop. Utility network operators can optimize their network planning, design, roll-out and operations and distribution companies can optimize their address management and logistics. Belmap thus enables better decision-making based on clear location insights. The objective is to evolve the product into a complete and highly detailed digital twin of the build-up territory.
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 Geodata Engineer I am a crucial part of GIM’s product team where I help to build and extend Belmap, our geodata flagship product. My precise nature combined with our well organized and described processes and procedures, help me to navigate this complex product with a focus on quality. Data wrangling and quality checks, both manually and automated, are no strangers to me but rather a key aspect in my work as geodata engineer. My experience with relational databases and SQL is nice to have, though probably not a prerequisite to be successful in my role.
I think my colleagues would describe me as a geodata wizard: I use a myriad of GIS (QGIS, ArcGIS, MapInfo..) or ETL (e.g. FME) tools and my programming (e.g. Python) skills in order to analyse and interpret new geospatial data and transform them into an ingestible form that enhances the quality of Belmap. Our team lead and project managers really appreciate my general passion for the Geo-ICT field which helps me to understand the underlying business context of our product and the enormous amount of possibilities it provides.
My communicative nature and a solution-oriented and positive mindset are important attributes as they help me in my service desk duties and in my daily follow-up of our team of data operators. They are in close interaction with our customers and can count on my advice when problems arise. Likewise, I can count on them to provide me with the qualitative input geo-data that I validate daily.
In general I would say that my job is a good example of the GIM mindset: a focus on continuous improvement for the product I help to develop, for myself as an individual and for the growth of my team. Our team meetings and feedback moments are the ideal opportunity for me to propose or participate to actions that will further our collaboration and improve the data quality and data transformation processes for our products.
At GIM we are convinced that our people make the difference and we enable this through a self-organizing culture. We offer a challenging role in a dynamic and innovative organization with prime working conditions complemented with excellent development and career opportunities and a competitive compensation package with benefits.
