Are you someone who appreciates a well written legal description, a burning passion for maps but still likes people?
The Gooding County Assessor’s Office is hiring a Mapper/Deed Processor.
This position will make changes to the ownership-of-record by processing deeds or muniments of title and maintain paper cadastral and electronic plat maps of all the real property parcels in Gooding County. They will process property splits and combinations and calculate parcel acreages and dimensions by reading legal descriptions. The mapper/deed processor often works closely with the public to answer their deed or split questions and with the Idaho State Tax Commission to help maintain a state-wide parcel map database.
A successful candidate will enjoy working with the public. They will have an attention to detail, be a team player and a high level of computer aptitude. Merely “liking” maps is not enough, they will need to “love” maps. They need to have patience, ethics and be able to work and stay organized under limited supervision.
Helpful skills include being able to read a legal description, knowledge of basic math and geometry, experience with deeds and recordings, and knowledge of ArcGIS software.
This position will require the employee to attend and pass several classes in order to obtain certification as a mapper with the Idaho State Tax Commission. Ongoing education will be necessary to maintain this certification.
The Mapper/Deed Processor position starts at $16/hr. DOE with a 35 hour/four day work week. Benefit package includes PERSI, and health insurance coverage for the employee.
Please return their resume, a completed Gooding County Employment Application form and an aptitude test, both available at http://goodingcounty.org/150/Assessors-Office, to Justin Baldwin, Gooding County Assessor by 5 p.m. March 3, 2020.
Bonus points if you include the nearest town to the crossing of the Idaho baseline and meridian in your cover letter.
