Are you ready to take the next step in your career? Do you want to do meaningful work that improves quality of life? At Tetra Tech, you will work with high-performing teams who are passionate about using their expertise to find solutions to complex problems in water, environment, infrastructure, resource management, energy, and international development.  Tetra Tech is a leading provider of high-end consulting and engineering services for projects worldwide. We combine the resources of a global, multibillion dollar company with local, client-focused delivery in more than 400 locations around the world. We are Leading with Science® to provide sustainable and resilient solutions for our clients.

Tetra Tech is seeking a GIS Database/Applications Specialist with 3 to 10 years of experience to provide technical support on a variety of projects and programs, including support for federal, state, and local government contracts, as well as commercial clients. This position will be based out of our Chicago, IL office, but home office arrangements will be considered.

The position requires strong GIS and web-based mapping application development skills as well as strong working knowledge of SQL Server and other relational database systems. The position will involve working directly with clients to establish and document requirements and develop applications using COTS tools and/or customized solutions. The position will frequently involve reviewing existing practices for data collection and management, identifying targets for improvement, and using advanced data management tools to automate repetitive processes and improve data quality and visualization products. The position will also involve modifying existing systems based on changing technologies and client needs. The position may require occasional travel to support GIS, data management, and web-based mapping application development for field work and emergency response activities. Responsibilities may also include training presentations; preparation of standard operating procedures, and other consulting activities. 

The selected candidate must have extensive experience with ESRI ArcMap/ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Server 10.1 or higher, as well as strong geodatabase design and management skills, including enterprise geodatabases. The applicant must also have experience in developing web-based mapping applications in ESRI environments, including Web App Builder and Dashboards. The applicant should have strong database skills (e.g. Microsoft Access and SQL Server), a working knowledge of SQL, and experience using ESRI's ArcGIS On-line web-based GIS environment.

Experience developing digital data collection tools is useful, including Esri's Survey123, QuickCapture, Collector, and Workforce, and Microsoft Forms, PowerApps, etc. It is desirable that the applicant also have software development experience (e.g. C++, C#, asp.net, etc.), as well as data analysis/task automation experience (e.g. Python, ArcPy, R, VBA, etc.). Experience with Office365 cloud-based environments and applications is also desirable, especially with a focus on collaborative tools and workflow automation. Experience with specialized ESRI tools, such as GeoEvent Server, Analytics for IOT, and Notebooks is a plus. Experience working with environmental data and sampling/monitoring equipment is a plus. Also, experience working in virtualized, cloud-based computing environments is highly desirable.


Must be highly motivated, customer focused, and work well in a team environment and able to perform tasks without a lot of oversight. Must also have the ability to manage a heavy workload, and occasionally travel. Excellent communication, client interaction, and organizational skills, as well as proficiency with database design, database administration and GIS and MS Office applications are required. Must be able to teach others and quickly pick up additional skills as needed. 


B.A/B.S. in IT, GIS, Engineering, or related degree required. ICS or other related training is desirable.   The work environment will consist mostly of in-office work; however, the position will require occasional work on environmental cleanup sites and emergency operations center (EOC), as well as in a mobile command post (MCP).
