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.

    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 a Senior Geospatial Analyst in the Response Division for Region VIII. Typical assignments include:

    • Planning, implementing, developing, and executing activities associated with the agency's geospatial information programs (GIS);
    • Providing input and advisory services in the following program areas: analysis and production; modeling, data management; innovation, tools development, coordination and dissemination, advocacy, remote sensing; technology awareness; requirements collection, prioritization and tracking; coordination and collaboration with agency headquarters and Regional components; and coordination and collaboration with other emergency management partner organizations at the Federal, State and local levels;
    • Providing expert technical input and advisory services in the development of program standards, doctrine, training, exercises and program awareness throughout the agency;
    • Serving as a project leader and point of coordination on the most critical and complex geospatial program, with this role requiring frequent coordination with internal and external working groups and incorporating a wide range of stakeholder concerns and effectively leveraging geospatial capabilities across departments and agencies;
    • Identifying operational issues requiring technology development and applying broad knowledge of geospatial innovations, methodologies, and practices to support agency-wide analytical projects;
    • Overseeing the maintenance of data on shared servers and specialized systems and the publishing of data using web services and specialized applications; and
    • Determining and managing customer expectations for products. Coordinates with appropriate geospatial stakeholders to prevent duplication of effort and to promote information sharing
