The Congressional Research Service (CRS) Office of Information Management and Technology (IMT) is seeking an Applications Developer to develop specific applications (websites, web applications, including mobile) to serve the research and information needs of the Members and staff of the Congress and the staff of CRS.
If you are selected for this position, you will be responsible for identifying and analyzing user needs and planning, designing, developing, implementing, testing, maintaining, evaluating, and reporting on computer applications to support congressional and CRS users in processes related to legislative, policy and analytic research, reference research, financial, human capital, and special initiatives.
CRS works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for nearly a century.
CRS is well known for analysis that is authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has immediate access to the nation's best thinking on public policy issues of interest to its Members and Committees.
