    Responsibilities

    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,  as a Geospatial Analyst, the incumbent performs key program implementation of the Agency's geographic information systems (GIS) initiatives and operations. The incumbent is responsible for supporting various recovery office functions as required and GIS initiatives and operations. Typical Assignments include:

    • Performing activities in operational areas such as analysis and production; modeling; innovation, tools development, coordination and dissemination; advocacy; remote sensing; technology awareness; requirements collection, prioritization and tracking; coordination and collaboration with other agencies and regional components; and coordination and collaboration with other emergency management partner organizations at the Federal, State and local levels.
    • Providing key project assistance in the development of program standards, doctrine, training, exercises, FEMA Qualification System (FQS) requirements, and program awareness throughout the recovery office.
    • Serving as a key resource on critical geospatial program initiatives, with this role requiring frequent coordination with internal and external working groups, and incorporating concerns in formulating and recommending solutions to problems that impact GIS capabilities.
    • Determining and managing customer expectations for products. Coordinates with appropriate geospatial stakeholders to prevent duplication of effort and to promote information sharing.
