FBI Recruiting 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 environment.

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 development.

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.
