The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency delivers world-class geospatial intelligence that provides a decisive advantage to policymakers, warfighters, intelligence professionals and first responders. NGA delivers the strategic intelligence that allows the president and national policymakers to make crucial decisions on counterterrorism, weapons of mass destruction, global political crises and more.

NGA requires the best minds from a variety of backgrounds that bring unique and valued perspectives to help us achieve our GEOINT mission. Whether you are an analyst or an HR specialist, an engineer or an accountant, NGA seeks passionate people who are interested in supporting U.S. national security and defense.

The success of NGA hinges upon its most important asset – its people. We live in a world where potential threats to our nation are constantly changing.

NGA enables all of these critical actions, and shapes decisions that impact our world through the indispensable discipline of geospatial intelligence. NGA is committed to harnessing the power of emerging technologies that deliver mission-critical GEOINT capabilities that enhance national security, keeping America safe.
