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 perform key program implementation of FEMA Geographic Information Systems (GIS) initiatives and operations.

    Typical assignments include:

    • Serving as a key resource on highly critical and complex geospatial program initiatives, performing geospatial activities in operational areas such as collection, production, analysis and dissemination.
    • Supporting regional steady state GIS mission, including mitigation and preparedness efforts, and quickly transition to life-saving and life-sustaining efforts within the response and recovery mission areas.
    • Creating, developing, and managing real-time situational awareness web maps, applications, and dashboards that support disaster operations, planning, and decision making.
    • Developing modeling and predictive analytics techniques to support disaster operations and planning.
