Meet Fasil, a senior product engineer on the ArcGIS Business Analyst team in Product Development. His journey to a career with Esri began at the 2012 User Conference. Fasil stopped by the Careers in GIS booth and expressed his interest in joining Esri. “I always believed in the power of GIS and Esri’s commitment to make a difference in our world by providing the tools to accomplish these goals.” As they say, the rest is history … after few months he moved his family from Phoenix to Redlands and started his career at Esri. With team members in Esri offices around the globe, Fasil believes that team collaboration is the key driver for his team’s success. “Great online communication and collaboration using any available media is important,” he says. In his 9 years with Esri, Fasil has seen great career growth. He started in technical support as a support analyst assisting and teaching our customers about ArcGIS. “I was able to learn so much in the process,” he says. After few years as a senior analyst in tech support, he moved into his current role as a product engineer.
We need to use the best science, design, and geographic thinking to address pressing environmental challenges. GIS integrates these approaches as well as multiple data types and allows us to look at problems holistically. #ClimateAction

Happy Earth Day everyone! We asked our employees to have their children, nieces, and nephews create works of art to symbolize what Earth Day means to them. It was fun seeing their creativity, and we wanted to share a few of their masterpieces with you. Who knows, maybe this activity inspired them to pursue a career in GIS!

What if we could better understand the world's biggest challenges simply by looking at a map? In this TED Talk Esri president Jack Dangermond discusses how his company is building a geospatial nervous system: a global, interconnected GIS network that reveals patterns and visualizes trends -- and could transform the way we make decisions about nearly everything and design a better future.
Meet Darnell, a senior software development engineer working on ArcGIS Insights, Esri’s product that fuses location analytics with business intelligence to help our customers answer questions they didn’t know to ask, allowing them to make better business decisions. “I was drawn to Esri because of the great work they do for our community. That made me really excited to join the company. Once I joined, I learned about all the ways they impact the world to truly make it a better place,” says Darnell. After a short time with Esri, he was invited to play for the Los Angeles Lakers D League team, an opportunity he couldn’t pass up. After playing for two years, Darnell returned to Esri. “The most rewarding part of my work is when I go to conferences and see all the great ways our partners and consumers use ArcGIS Insights to solve issues effectively,” he says. “My career growth has been amazing. I’ve grown as a developer, but maybe even more importantly I’ve grown as a person.” Read Darnell’s full story at https://www.instagram.com/p/CLumib1pdeb/.
