TTS is an Equal Opportunity Employer

We’re building a team that reflects our country. We don’t discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, military service, or other non-merit factors.

Hiring Authorities

There are two primary types of hiring authorities used by TTS: Competitive Service and Excepted Service. The application and hiring process will vary slightly based on the type of role for which you are applying.

Competitive Service: Applicants for all competitive service roles must complete the application process at usajobs.gov. Individuals go through a competitive hiring process before being selected and appointed. This hiring process may consist of a written test, an evaluation of the individual’s education and experience, or an evaluation of other attributes necessary for successful performance in the position to be filled.

Excepted Service: These roles are “not to exceed” (NTE) positions, which means they are two-year terms and can be extended once for a total of four years of service. These roles are not always posted on usajobs.gov. Instead, candidates can apply via our online application.

Eligibility

For Competitive Service roles: All United States citizens and nationals (residents of American Samoa and Swains Islands) are eligible to apply.

For Excepted Service roles: All United States citizens and nationals (residents of American Samoa and Swains Islands) are eligible to apply.
