GIS Field Analyst II - Solar

M. A. Mortenson Company

As a Top 25 builder, developer, and EPC, our expertise spans markets like sports, renewable energy, data centers, healthcare, and more. We are builders at heart, working to ensure the built environment has a lasting positive impact. 
Let’s Redefine Possible® 


We are seeking a GIS Analyst II who will be the functional and project process expert among our Solar Project Teams in the field. As part of the VDC team, you will help support our rapidly growing group as we scale up our GIS processes as a team. This is a very unique role for the GIS community, and we are excited for this team member to join our group. This is a regional position and will be responsible for either the Florida or Texas region.  

This is NOT a remote position.  You must temporarily relocate to the project area.  Housing assistance and travel home allowance is supplied.

This position will interface frequently between field and design project team members to help drive project integration and technology innovation, implement GIS standardization across field teams, drive GIS adoption, host GIS trainings, and support overall VDC initiatives. Effective partnership with our E&I (Energy and Infrastructure) groups, Lean, Industrialization and field-integrated teams will be critical for the success of this position. The role will initially report to the Director of Integrated Technology and VDC for the Solar Group.

The location is set to be either the Texas or Florida region. We will discuss with you your preferred region area. Within each region are approximately 3-6 projects you will help partner with. This position will require frequent travel to project sites as needed to help actively support field teams. It is expected that the team member will be on a site each
day; however, a flexible hybrid remote schedule can be discussed and mutually agreed upon prior to the start of this role. It will require flexibility based on project needs.
