FAA joining the chief data officer movement

help wanted ad

The Federal Aviation Administration is looking to hire its first chief data officer.

In a June 10 job posting, the FAA notes that the new leadership role will require thinking about data both offensively and defensively: The agency wants to use and share its data in new ways, while also minimizing the risk that valuable data might be hacked.

The CDO will work with leadership of FAA's NextGen modernization push, as well as the Air Traffic Organization's chief operating officer and the CIO within FAA’s Office of Finance and Management.

Successful candidates will need both leadership and tech experience, and the ability to obtain a top secret security clearance.

The CDO position is slated to pay between $124,900 and $175,700. The FAA plans to accept applications through July 12.
