INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PERSONNEL
Washington, DC - The FBI
recently launched a recruitment campaign aimed at hiring a large number of
Information Technology (IT) Professionals. These candidates will work with
some of the most cutting-edge technology available in the world, to operate
and maintain a robust, secure FBI global information technology (IT) infrastructure
The FBI is seeking highly
competitive candidates to fill critical IT positions, including computer
scientists, computer engineers, information technology specialists, and IT
project managers. Salaries for these positions range from $35,452 - $135,136,
based on experience and qualifications, with potential recruitment bonuses
for those candidates who possess skills deemed most critical to the FBI.
To expedite the hiring and interviewing process, special procedures will
be in place to bring applicants onboard expeditiously, with interviews beginning
in January 2006.
FBI Director Robert S.
Mueller III said, "Joining the FBI technology team will be an exciting
and rewarding career. FBI is dedicated to developing and implementing state-of-the-art
information technology systems to support our agents and analysts working
in the field. These IT positions are critical in support of this FBI's mission
to protect the United States against terrorism, foreign intelligence, criminal
enterprises and cyber attacks."
The FBI is strengthening
systems engineering as this critical discipline is necessary to tie new systems
together architecturally and ensure that newly identified standards are enforced.
System engineers are needed to develop and operate in a test environment
so that stress and other tests are run against new systems. Engineers are
needed to transition new capability into an operations and maintenance environment.
Another critical area
for the FBI is data warehousing and federated search. Warehousing has been
very successful, yet enterprise extraction, translation, and loading processes
must be fine tuned. Data engineers are needed to model legacy databases for
federated search and participate in legacy transition planning.
Finally, the FBI is on
a path to service oriented architecture. The services offered in the future
will cross intelligence, administrative, and law enforcement lines of business.
Application engineers and experts in portal technology will be needed to
create this new environment. Many of these efforts are in their infancy and
offer new personnel the opportunity to get in on the ground floor in systems
All interested personnel
should immediately apply online at www.fbijobs.gov.
As a prerequisite for FBI employment, you must be a U.S. citizen and consent
to a complete background investigation, drug test, and polygraph. Only those
candidates determined to be best qualified will be contacted to proceed in
the selection process.
The FBI is an equal opportunity
employer and a member of the US Intelligence Community.
