Work for the Fed

We like to say we work for the Fed, not at the Fed. That’s because the SF Fed is not just another employer or government agency. Here, you have the opportunity to become part of an important public service institution whose work touches lives across the globe. The thought of economic and monetary policies may lead you to think of the Federal Reserve as solely a banking organization. Quite the contrary, as you can see, our work includes a broad range of disciplines.

Listen to the stories of people working for the Fed.

“It’s not just about coming in and staring at the monitor, but it’s about coming in and doing the job and having fun while doing it.”

Charles, Information Technology

“I’ve been able to get involved with employee resource groups, expand how I interact in my workday with a mindful meditation, with supporting the management roundtable, by being a part of the 12LGBT group. It’s a richer environment for that.”

Leslie, Financial Planning and Control

“The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco is a unique institution because we are public servants who play a role in maintaining the stability of the United States economy … we have a lot of personal pride in our role as public servants.”

Andrea, Project Analyst, Los Angeles Branch

“Every day is surprising here and the work that we do is diverse and fulfilling in a lot of ways that I think are unexpected for people who don’t have intimate experience with the Federal Reserve.”

Ian, Community Development

“Every day that I come to work I am highly-engaged and provided many opportunities to learn … [my colleagues] are hard-working, they’re supportive and they’re the brightest group of people I’ve ever worked with.”

Wanda, Chief of Police, Northern Region
