Why Alderwood Water & Wastewater District?


Alderwood Water & Wastewater District’s (AWWD) mission is to provide clean, reliable water and wastewater services for a healthy community.  As an organization we strive to build and maintain a system that will function for the next 100 years and beyond.  We protect the natural environment, conserve water resources, and provide critical services every day.  Spanning 45 square miles in southwest Snohomish County, we are the largest special purpose water/wastewater district in the State of Washington.   

The District’s strategic plan includes the following strategies: ‘serve you today’, ‘plan for tomorrow’, ‘protect our water supply’, ‘manage our information and our physical assets’, and ‘build a learning organization’.  Our staff are engaged in updating the tools and methods we use to serve a growing community more efficiently and effectively.

"Planning for the long tomorrow" is AWWD's guiding principle.  We act on our decisions and prioritize our resources and programs based on the impact to our customers and community today and for the next 100 years.  

The Opportunity:  Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Coordinator

AWWD seeks an experienced GIS professional to help design, support, maintain, and enhance   GIS solutions for our evolving utility.   As our second GIS Coordinator, we’re looking for a well rounded, systemic thinker who is as comfortable managing data as they are implementing creative solutions.  The best addition to our team will be an enthusiastic innovator who will learn the history behind a process and is willing to challenge their own assumptions; an inquisitive and active listener who has the confidence to say “I don’t know” and the initiative to follow up and implement agile applications that align with the strategic direction of the District.  

Much of the region’s thriving growth is landing directly in AWWD’s service area.  Meeting the needs of our growing customer population requires more efficient business processes, services, maps, and technology. Our new GIS Coordinator will play a critical role in developing and maintaining robust and accurate GIS applications. The District is currently working on an ambitious project to implement Cityworks, a new computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) that will integrate directly with our existing GIS architecture and should also take advantage of our enterprise content management system (ECM) to manage documentation. 

Our technology group benefits from a variety of perspectives, cultures, philosophies, communication styles, experience, and talent.  The successful candidate will partner with our existing GIS Coordinator, Computer Support Specialist, Systems Administrator, Application Integrator, IT Project Manager, and the future addition of two Application Developers.  Leading our IT group is a member of the District's Management Team, the IT Manager, who is responsible for helping us achieve our mission, vision, and values through the development and implementation of the District's technology programs.
