GIS Project Manager
Interactive venue maps are an integral part of the SeatGeek user experience. With thousands of existing maps and new configurations appearing daily, maintaining and improving our mapping data is a massive task. We are looking for a data-driven project manager with a keen eye for detail to run this process.

As project manager, you will be involved with all aspects of the mapping process, from identifying the most valuable outstanding maps and configurations, to final QA and testing. You will oversee a team of remote mapping designers to ensure that we continue to have the best venue maps in the industry and are always one step ahead of the next Taylor Swift tour. Specific responsibilities include:

  • Maintaining and prioritizing the backlog of mapping work
  • Working closely with the engineering team to improve the mapping workflow and user experience
  • Allocating work amongst the mapping designers and facilitating communication
  • Gathering a wide variety of sources for use in map creation, including official seating charts, satellite imagery, images, and videos
  • Performing QA on maps to ensure that they are both accurate and aesthetically pleasing

What We're Looking For

  • At least 2 years experience in project management or similar role
  • Strong knowledge of a vector drawing, CAD, or GIS program
  • Excellent organization and communication skills
  • Programming experience -- the ability to write basic scripts and help improve internal tools -- is a plus
  • Advanced knowledge of Excel
  • An attention to detail bordering on obsessive

Things We'd Love to See

  • Experience with Adobe Illustrator
  • Love of live events
  • Undergraduate/graduate studio coursework in departments like architecture, design, and art
