Meet Vinesh, Global Mobility Coordinator

Vinesh talks about his role in Human Resources and offers insight into the process for employees who join Esri from other countries.

How long have you been with Esri?

I’ve been here about three years. I actually started as a temp in a recruiting assistant role, working with two of our recruiters and the university relations coordinator. After about four months, I transitioned into my current role as Global Mobility Coordinator.

Explain the term global mobility for people who may not be familiar with it.

Global mobility includes everything about making sure people can live and work successfully in a different country, including analysis and support of relocation and compensation. Generally speaking, I make sure Esri’s domestic and international employees are working with legal status and they have no issues working or staying in the US. That is the simple way I describe it to my friends because you’re right: global mobility is confusing. I usually say “global mobility coordinator” or “I’m the immigration guy.” It’s about making sure that people can focus on their work and not have to worry about items related to the government and their stay here.

An Esri Intern’s Perspective: It’s Hard Not to Get Excited About This Company

By Guest Blogger Mark, Professional Services Intern

Mark at the Esri UC; Gaslamp Quarter in the background

My goal for the summer after my junior year at Purdue University was to come home to Southern California for an internship. I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Esri name on Purdue’s career opportunities page, and I decided to apply. I knew nothing about the company other than the fact that they were looking for someone with my educational background in business, and that their logo was a globe. But after 12 weeks and a trip to the Esri International User Conference in San Diego under my belt, it’s hard not to get excited about this company and its contributions to so many different industries throughout the world.

Interning at Esri a Chance to Contribute

By Erika, Professional Services Intern

Every college student wants that dream internship where they can learn and grow in a professional environment while simultaneously loving what they are doing. I never thought I would be one of those lucky people that can’t stop talking about their internship and annoying all their friends with every detail, until luck struck me and I was hired at Esri as a summer intern! As a recent graduate from UC Riverside and an Inland Empire native, I had always heard great things about Esri and I was so excited to spend my summer learning more about the company. (Editor’s note: Inland Empire refers to the metropolitan area surrounding Redlands.)

The Esri UC: Where Innovation and Application Meet

By Guest Blogger Drew, 2013 Student Assistant

Pop quiz, GIS students: do you recall Waldo Tobler’s first rule of geography? It goes something like “All things are related, but those that are closer together are more related.” Today’s geographers are used to being near one another via emails and online user groups, a far cry from the nearness that Tobler described. However, the annual Esri International User Conference brings 13,000 GIS users together under one roof for a week. The experience is a real eye-opener for anyone who thinks that digital interfacing is even remotely similar to geographic nearness. This is what the Esri UC does best—it whips up a GIS user “cocktail,” consisting of planners, tech- nicians, developers, engineers, and many others. Esri serves up this grand event year after year, making sure the exper- ience is a collaborative one between employees and users.
