Freelance Cartographic Designer / GIS Analyst
— News release: 14th August 2018
- Location: Central London
- Company: Cartobrien
- Closing Date: 17/09/2018
Who we are:
I started Cartobrien Limited 3 years ago after working as part of the London 2012 Cartography team. It’s a cartographic design company working mainly in transport planning. I do what I do because I love making maps, finding interesting ways to represent complex data for clients and displaying it in a simple and aesthetic/graphical manner.
Who you are:
I would like to find someone with the same enthusiasm as myself to come on board on a freelance basis to help with day to day mapping requests from my clients. It would be an ideal position for a student or graduate with some experience with GIS and Illustrator wanting to learn some new skills and with an interest in transport and urban planning projects. Maybe Cartography is a part of your portfolio of interests. What is key is that you will have bags of drive and commitment, love working in a small hard working team and have a passion for the challenges cartography presents.
You will be working remotely or from one of my clients’ offices all based in Central London / East London. The job will consist of analysis of data, productions of maps and graphics. As you develop, you will be increasingly exposed to clients directly, taking into account their comments and collaborating with wider teams to ensure our outputs respond to their needs.
