It doesn't look like anyone responded to your post, so I will offer some
brief comments. I don't think it likely that you will find a job focused
specifically on open source GIS. I am one of the moderator of the OSGeo
Jobs mailing list, and job postings there are quite rare in our current


I think you may have to settle for a job in GIS, with perhaps an
opportunity to occasionally dabble in open source GIS software. I can
think of only a handful of companies that work extensively with open
source GIS software, especially on the desktop. Examples are Refractions
Research, Vivid Solutions, and LISASoft. The first two are Canadian
companies, the second is in Australia.


A better option may be to take a "regular" GIS job but to hone your
programming skill set by volunteering with one of the OSGeo projects.
(Let me know if you are really bored. I could put you to work on a
couple of things right now.) :] 


Or you could possibly work part-time as a consultant trying to help
organizations get started with open source GIS.


At any rate, post a link to your resume on the OSGeo Jobs mailing list.
That can't hurt.

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] Finding an OSGEO-related job in London



I am moving to London in late January 2010 and am trying to find a job /

career in GIS preferably using Open Source GIS. I am finding it quite

to find job openings in this field, especially in the GIS-T area; which

is my area of expertise. Anyone can recommend some job hunting websites

which are more attributed to OSGEO please?

(Sorry for double posting but the previous one had the wrong subject
