The GIS and CAD Records team is looking for interns eager to develop their GIS skills. GIS is just beginning to take hold in the telecom industry and at TDS. We are responsible for the maintenance and distribution of the company’s outside plant records. These are records of the equipment that makes a phone network function. Want to know what path the internet takes to get to your home? Come see us. The team’s work includes migrating legacy network plant data into our geodatabase, correcting and maintaining both the spatial and attribute accuracy of this data, and using the data to help improve network architecture and engineering processes. Ideal applicants will be familiar with ESRI’s ArcGIS software suite (ArcMap, ArcCatalog, ArcPro, AGOL). Working knowledge of programming and query languages (Python, SQL), relational databases, or CAD is a plus. Apply today, this job is literally where it’s at!
