The FBI today unveiled a campaign to hire a large number of IT
professionals to operate and maintain the bureau's global systems.
"Joining the FBI technology team will be an exciting and rewarding
career," said FBI director Robert S. Mueller III in a statement. "The
FBI is dedicated to developing and implementing state-of-the-art IT
systems to support our agents and analysts 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 cyberattacks."
The Government Accountability Office recently reported that the
bureau's shortage of key IT personnel poses problems for the rollout
of new systems.
According to an FBI statement, the bureau is recruiting computer
scientists, engineers, IT specialists and project managers at salaries
ranging from $35,452 to $135,136, with potential recruitment bonuses.
The FBI has adopted special procedures to hire staff quickly, with
interviews beginning in January.
The bureau said it is seeking expertise in:
* Systems engineering
* Data Warehousing
* Federated search technology
* Data engineering
* Service-oriented architecture
* Application engineering
* Portal technology.
The bureau urged applicants to apply online .
