Working for the SF Fed

Our work is in the pockets of each American. It fuels innovation and jump-starts dreams. We are the defenders of dollars—working hard to ensure the economic and financial stability of our country and our region.

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.
