Secret Service needs a CIO

help wanted ad

A high-profile government agency responsible for the lives of some of the most important people on the planet, working in one of the most volatile, pressure-filled environments on earth needs a new CIO. It's not a job for the faint-of-heart, as failure could mean monumental problems for everyone.

The Secret Service is looking to pay $121,956 to $183,300 to a candidate who can "transform" the way the agency uses technology to achieve its mission of protecting the president of the United States, his family, the vice president and his family, visiting foreign leaders, and U.S. currency from counterfeiters.

The ideal job applicant, said the Secret Service job notice, will be able to use technology to support those missions in ways that can spur strategic change, from the modernization of mobile phones into communication and planning devices to working with partners on advanced surveillance and threat mitigation.

You’ll also need top secret/sensitive compartmented information clearances to qualify for the Senior Executive Service-level post.
