Description

Seam Social Labs is a research and innovation company on a mission to empower disinvested communities. Our vision is to create more transparent & ethical systems so community stakeholders can co-create solutions together. Think of us as the Alfreds to the Batman!

Our team is virtual and based in New York City. But we have an office in Newark, NJ (temporarily closed). We don’t have set hours --rather, we focus on milestones. We are open-minded, solutions-driven, and totally into research and data. Be ready to work with a fast-paced team. 

We are hiring a part-time GIS Specialist. In this role, you will spend 10-20 hours per week cleaning & collect datasets, designing data visualizations and map overlays, and working on a cross-collaborative project with our team. 

Skills and responsibilities

We are looking for a candidate who is into data visualizations, loves taking datasets and converting them into spatial information, and sees maps way differently then we do. Really --you should love maps! You will be working with large datasets so be prepared for tons of information and ready to come up with cool impactful innovations. This is a grant-funded role that will be milestones driven. So you should be ready to learn and challenge yourself!
