WHO WE ARE

The Pipeline Safety Trust (PST), based in Bellingham, WA is a national non-profit organization founded in response to the 1999 Olympic Pipeline Explosion as a watchdog on the US pipeline industry and its regulators.

ABOUT THE ROLE

The Pipeline Safety Trust is seeking an assiduous Data and GIS Analyst with a commitment to keep communities and the environment safe from pipeline failures and the potentially largest threat from pipelines – climate change. This position will enable members of the public to access digestible data about the risks of pipelines to their communities and help them draw conclusions about those risks.  This position will also help the Pipeline Safety Trust effectively deliver its message with fact-driven animated data.

Interactive Maps

Using data from the Federal Regulator (PHMSA) database and other sources, the Data and GIS Analyst will create interactive maps that users will be able to filter and query in order to glean information and draw conclusions.

Database User-Interface

Using data from the Federal Regulator (PHMSA) database, the Data and GIS Analyst will create and design a user-friendly interface that will facilitate access and encourage engagement for members of the public who are not pipeline or database experts.
