Responsibilities

As a Utility Engineer for the CIA, you will have full-scope responsibility for a variety of industrial utility systems and infrastructure deployed at Agency data centers worldwide. These systems include heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC), three-phase power (120/208/220/380/460) distribution grids, emergency power generators (diesel), automatic transfer switches (ATS), transformers, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), automatic voltage regulators (AVR) and plumbing systems.

Participating in the full project life cycle, you will plan, review, execute and document the installation of utility systems and supporting infrastructure on both large and small scales. You will also repair, upgrade, modify, configure and maintain existing utility systems to ensure the highest levels of availability and reliability. Utility Engineers are required to broaden their skills across multiple disciplines (HVAC, electrical, emergency power generators and diesel technology) and to remain proficient in their principal trade/field.

The capacity and commitment to serve globally is essential. Utility Engineers typically work overseas in a temporary travel status up to 50% of the time. Some assignments may be in difficult, harsh and challenging environments. Opportunities to live and work overseas are available and most Utility Engineers live abroad at some point in their careers. Utility Engineers receive benefits and allowances for travel that positively affect their overall compensation.
