The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit conservation organization that protects birds and the places they need today and tomorrow. We work throughout the Americas towards a future where birds thrive because Audubon is a powerful, diverse, and ever-growing force for conservation. Audubon has more than 700 staff working across the hemisphere and more than 1.5 million active supporters.
North America has lost three billion birds since 1970, and more than 500 bird species are at risk of extinction across Latin America and the Caribbean. Birds act as early warning systems about the health of our environment, and they tell us that birds – and our planet – are in crisis. Together as one Audubon, we are working to alter the course of climate change and habitat loss, leading to healthier bird populations and reversing current trends in biodiversity loss. We do this by implementing on-the-ground conservation, partnering with local communities, influencing public and corporate policy, and building community.
Audubon is committed to a culture of workplace excellence, where our talented and diverse staff are deeply engaged with a strong sense of belonging. The birds Audubon pledges to protect differ in color, size, behavior, geographical preference, and countless other ways. By honoring and celebrating the equally remarkable diversity of the human species, Audubon brings new creativity, effectiveness, and leadership to our work throughout the hemisphere.
The Senior Manager of GIS Systems leads the implementation of Audubon’s geographic information systems (GIS) infrastructure to enable users across the organization to develop and implement data-driven approaches to delivering our mission for hemispheric level bird conservation. This role is responsible for ensuring the health and reliability of GIS servers, the development and maintenance of spatial databases, and the production of integrations and queries across GIS and internal data warehouses. A successful candidate will have the requisite technical skills as well as strengths in project management and communication with stakeholders regarding requirements and expectations for successful delivery. This position reports to the Director of Enterprise GIS on the Data & Analytics team within the Audubon Technology team, and will work alongside the Senior Manager of GIS Products and in an advisory capacity to Audubon’s Dangermond Fellows.
