SCO EmploymentAlthough full-time staff openings at the State Cartographer’s Office are rare, we frequently hire student hourly employees to assist with our many ongoing projects. To be eligible for employment, you must be at least a part-time student (undergraduate or graduate) enrolled at any college or university.

Skills we typically seek include: a basic understanding of geospatial technologies (GIS, GPS, remote sensing, etc.), database concepts (especially in MySQL, PostgreSQL, and PostGIS), web scripting (PHP, Javascript), Python, prior exposure to web content management systems, and/or an understanding of cartographic principles.  Our students come from a variety of academic backgrounds, including geography, civil and environmental engineering, computer science, computer engineering, urban and regional planning, environmental science, and more.
