As an FBI Special Agent with expertise in cybersecurity, you'll have a career like no other. Your technology background provides skill sets in areas the FBI needs most. To keep pace with evolving threats, we need Special Agents who are logical thinkers and experienced in network, information and cybersecurity, computer science, digital forensics and incident response among other technical specialty areas. And as a Special Agent, you will be integrated into all of the different areas in which we work.

Whether you work in counterterrorism, criminal investigations or thwarting cyberattacks, investigating computer-based crimes (website hacks, intrusions, data theft, ransomware, etc.) make up some of our top priorities. You will work on highly collaborative investigative teams to thwart counterintelligence plots, fraud, bank robberies and more. Candidates must work well in high-speed, dynamic and sophisticated environments and have excellent communication skills.

You can expect continued specialized training once onboard and opportunities to work on some of the Bureau's most complex cases. The scope and scale of our investigations provide unique challenges unlike anything you could work on in the private sector. Your ultimate mission: to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution of the United States.

Being a Special Agent can be a lifelong career of uncommon days and amazing experiences.

What you'll need to succeed:

BA/BS degree (preferably in computer science, engineering, data science, information technology or similar disciplines).

A deep understanding of the deployment, administration and support of information and computing infrastructure.

Ability to communicate clearly and effectively with both technical and nontechnical colleagues and stakeholders, both internally and externally.

Demonstrated technical expertise.

In addition:

Exceptional problem-solving and analytical skills.

Be detail-oriented, yet keep a strategic focus.

Ability to objectively evaluate information and make sound judgements.

Honesty and integrity must be the foundation of who you are.

The drive and commitment to make a difference in the communities you serve.

All applicants are evaluated on core competencies of collaboration, communication, flexibility/adaptability, initiative, interpersonal ability, leadership, organizing/planning and problem solving/judgment.

The FBI Special Agent position requires significant commitment and dedication from you and your family, but it's an experience you will never forget. As a Special Agent, you will join an elite team of people committed to the highest standards. Our team has a critical mission and our people are sought after as some of the best in their fields.
