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? What if you could do all of that at a company that is a mobile, online and industry leader?

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. "The role of technology and the rate of innovation and transformative change has never been greater in business or at GEICO than it is today. 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. After the program is complete, participants will move into positions on technical teams best suited for their interests and skills.

GEICO is looking for applicants that have a Bachelor's degree in computer science or a related technical field with an overall GPA of at least 3.2, and coursework or related experience using Java, .NET, iOS, Android and/or C# technologies.
