Experienced IT workers are encouraged to apply

Sacramento – The Department of Motor Vehicles joined several state agencies at a job fair today in Oakland to promote available technology jobs statewide for Californians interested in a career in public service.

As the DMV continues to digitize services and modernize its technological offerings to improve customer service, the department continues to look for talented workers to join the team, particularly those with experience or interest in technology jobs.

“There is a new DMV today,” said DMV Director Steve Gordon. “The recent changes we’ve made have depended on skilled IT workers who think outside the box. Our work is not done, and we invite available tech workers to join our team to continue the transformation.”

Recent advancements at the DMV allow customers to accomplish almost all DMV services at from any device, at any time. The DMV is also replacing and updating its IT infrastructure and systems to improve efficiency, convenience and reliability for both customers and the DMV team.

The DMV jobs in the IT field include business analysts, application architects, network architects, cloud architects, data architects, application designers, programmers, database experts, project managers, program managers, portfolio managers, and more.

State jobs in many classifications offer stability, health and dental benefits, paid holidays, vacation, sick leave and a pension.

“We are always looking for talented people in all fields with broad experience to help us reinvent the DMV,” Gordon said. “We encourage anyone with experience with modern technology, project, program, and even retail management to apply today. We also have an internship and student assistant programs for beginning IT workers.”

Recent DMV accomplishments include offering paperless renewal notices to customers, options to upload documents and interact with DMV team members through email instead of at an office, an easier to use online driver’s license application, and, coming soon, a mobile driver’s license pilot program.

The DMV has reduced its carbon footprint by reducing paper processes and eliminating the need to drive to an office or transport paperwork from one office to another. Recent efforts to meet customers where they are and provide multiple service channels make DMV services more equitable and promote economic opportunity.
