Web Developer - Contract

Six Month Minimum

In 1982, Canadian earth scientists Colin Reeves and Ian MacLeod saw the potential for personal computers to transform the work of geophysics and exploration. From this early vision Geosoft was established in 1986. More than 30 years later, the company remains focused on exploration and the earth sciences - delivering services and technology solutions, across desktop, server and Internet platforms.
That founding concept of innovation through collaboration still exists today, and has resulted in a culture where ideas are encouraged, shared and seen to fruition; where our people have the flexibility they need to truly balance work and life, and where employee contributions have a real and lasting impact. 
With offices across five continents, and a network of international business partners, Geosoft serves thousands of organizations, including government geological surveys and agencies, educational institutions teaching the earth sciences, and the most successful oil and mineral explorers in the world. Geosoft has been ranked as a Top 150 Technology Company, and one of the Ten Best Workplaces in Canada. We provide a quality work environment that is informal but professional, friendly and supportive.  The company is employee-owned and has strong living company principles.
