Company Overview: 

Hundreds of organizations around the world rely on Geocortex software by Latitude Geographics to design, develop and maintain web-based mapping applications. We believe geographic information over the web can empower people to make better decisions about their lives, society and the world around us. You can help us make a difference.

Job Summary: 

From Norwegian scientists tracking polar bears in the Arctic to urban planning in Dubai, our software is used increasingly by people around the world to help inform important decisions. Our mission is to expand the application of our technology, and the benefits it provides. Outside North America, we accomplish this through a growing network of business partners who resell and implement our software in their countries.

In this role you will be working closely with the Business Partner Manager to support and advise our international reseller network. Everything you do will revolve around ensuring that our partners and their clients are successful with Geocortex and Esri technology. You will provide technical updates and guidance to our resellers and relay their unique cultural, technical, and geographic needs back to our product and business teams. While the majority of your work can be done out of our Victoria office, you will need to periodically visit our partners onsite in their respective countries around the world. (Travel is estimated at 20-25%).

  • Develop and execute on a program for a technology tour to support Geocortex partners’ knowledge of our products.
  • Support the partner manager in business development activities. More specifically, promoting the value proposition of Geocortex and supporting co-selling and co-implementation projects.
  • This position requires moderate travel (20% to 25%), primarily within Europe, the Middle-East, and North America.
