Attention job seekers with backgrounds in computer science, computer engineering or information systems: Are you looking for a career opportunity to use cutting-edge technologies, improve users' online experience and develop apps?

GEICO is seeking driven, innovative college graduates with technical backgrounds for its new Technology Development Program. This three-year program, based in the company's corporate headquarters in the Washington, D.C., metro area, is a full-time rotational program designed to give technical college graduates a well-rounded experience within IT at GEICO.

"It is a very exciting time to begin a career in IT," said Greg Kalinsky, GEICO's chief information officer and senior vice president with responsibilities for IT operations.

Our technology development program is designed to provide a foundation for success by providing our program candidates with a comprehensive set of experiences in mobile and web development as well as IT operations. I look forward to adding many more technology leaders to our talented and dynamic GEICO IT team."

Associates in the program will rotate through GEICO's Information Services, Systems Operations and Internet Business divisions, work on individual and team projects and develop technical, project management, communication and leadership abilities while enhancing programming, networking and architecture, software engineering and database management skills.
