GIS Data Architect

Espoo, Uusimaa   |   Full Time

How does working with emerging technologies with top experts sound? Are you that self-driven veteran or a rising star whose bread and butter is different GIS technologies (open source, ArcGIS, Mapbox, Here etc.) and location intelligence? We at Advian are now looking for a GIS Data Architect to join our team. We want to offer the world’s best experts the job of their dreams. That’s why we modestly aim for a 50-point Employee Net Promoter Score, which we measure every month.


Advian is Finland’s fastest growing house of experts in refined analytics, whose superpowers are the unique Edge AI and GeoAI as well as the supreme management of information. We have a technology-agnostic approach to our work, and we provide our customers with an unfair competitive advantage. Advian's flat and self-directed organizational model gives every employee the perfect combination of individual support and freedom.


In the role of a GIS Data Architect you’ll get to design and lead the implementation of location enabled architectures and solutions for our customers. Based on your own interest, you can also participate in pre-sales activities and our R&D projects. We are looking for an expert familiar with designing business-driven architectures – by enriching existing data warehouses with geospatial data, not by isolating it in its own silo.
