The Role

The Field Data Specialist will travel the country, gathering and reporting important property information around shopping malls and other commercial properties. Working almost entirely on your own, you use hands-on mechanical skills and practical tools like measuring wheels, hand tools, ladders, and a scooter for zipping around big properties.

Along with developing relationships with members of clients on the ground, you will also use your tech skills—drawing on a tablet or iPad, spatially thinking your way around a shopping center, using a wire tracker, laser measure, and our proprietary software to find, measure, and map every detail of shopping centers.
