Skilled technicians for the production of nautical charts and marine data
The Danish Geodata Agency is responsible for the infrastructure of marine data and for the development and maintenance of nautical charts covering Danish territorial waters, the waters around the Faroe Islands and the waters around Greenland. Safety at sea is vital for both commercial shipping and leisure boating and demands for high-quality nautical charts. At the same time the use of the sea for many different purposes is on the rise and it requires an easy and secure access to marine data.
The hydrographic offices ‘Søkort Danmark og Forvaltning’ and ‘Arktis og Søopmåling’ in the Danish Geodata Agency are looking for a number of skilled technicians, that with enthusiasm, foresight and a good portion of IT-flair can help maintain and develop the production of nautical charts and marine data. We are hiring both for permanent positions and 2-year project employments.
You will primarily be part of the teams responsible for the production, maintenance and quality control of electronic nautical charts, paper nautical charts and harbour charts.
You will, among other things, work with cartographic processing and updating, quality assurance and subsequent validation of data, including depth data. You will also be involved in light case management on the area of nautical charts, including having contact with other authorities, harbours, etc.
For the right applicants there will also be the chance to engage in exciting development-projects, such as for an example the conversion of the current file-based production system into a database based production system or the implementation of a new data management system.
Your personal skills
We expect you to have data flair and a good process-, system-, and IT-understanding. You want to work with marine data, nautical charts and similar products. Knowledge of geodata and experience working with GIS applications would be an absolute advantage.
You have a technical education, e.g. having trained as a map or survey technician or graphic design technologist, or a university bachelor degree as geographer, surveyor, engineer, or similar.
The most important thing is that you are passionate about making a difference in your work, see opportunities and exciting challenges in new technology, and that you have the desire and potential to continually develop yourself and learn something new.
We offer multiple exciting positions in a public authority in the midst of a great transformation. There will therefore be a good opportunity for developing your relevant skills. In the hydrographic area we are approximately 60 employees split on two offices each with 20-25 employees and 13 hydrographic surveyors from the Danish Defense. We work in close collaboration across the hydrographic area and offer a highly professional environment, good colleagues and an informal tone.
Salary and working conditions
The terms of employment will be in accordance with the collective agreement between the Ministry of Finance and the relevant union organization, though with the opportunity for pay supplements. Your place of employment will be the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate and its ministerial institutions. Workplace will be in Aalborg.
The working hours are 37 hours per week.
We aim to have the positions filled by the 1st of April or as soon as possible thereafter.
