    When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.

    EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.

    In this position, you will serve as an Emergency Management Specialist (Geospatial). Typical assignments include:

    • Serving as a technical expert in geospatial database management. Organizing and implementing database management processes including data maintenance, data cleanup, and issuance of guidance and standards to improve data quality.
    • Leading cross-functional and matrix working groups, user groups, and project teams, as needed, to achieve agreed upon outcomes within the specified cost, schedule, and scope.
    • Leading multi-functional information technology programs and projects, which involve high interest, high value IT equipment, software, emerging technologies, and other special attributes. Actively engaging supervisor, team leadership, team members, and other stakeholders to ensure awareness and coordinated management of project direction, status, risks, and issues.
    • Preparing briefings and presentations to internal and external forums/audiences. Communicating technical and/or programmatic information to management, colleagues, industry representatives, community officials, and other members of the public (e.g., property owners).
    • Collaborating with project managers and contract support staff operating in support of HQ and regional offices to ensure the mission needs (e.g., flood hazard identification and analysis, flood risk assessment) needs are adequately supported by IT products (e.g., systems, applications, and data sets) in Risk Management Directorate’s portfolio.
