Census Bureau: Business Ecosystem Technology Modernization Effort Announced

At the U.S. Census Bureau, we understand the critical role that technology talent plays in addressing our greatest mission challenges and advancing our capabilities to serve the evolving needs of today’s data users. Our commitment to excellence in data collection, analysis and dissemination requires us to continuously grow and develop our current technology teams, while looking outside of the Census Bureau for new talent with the technical expertise and applied experience needed to propel us forward. 
Recognizing our challenge, we have undertaken a technology modernization effort known as the Business Ecosystem. This initiative aims to leverage the power of technology to enhance our ability to deliver relevant, timely and accurate data products; reduce the public burden when we collect data; employ modern data science techniques; enhance already strong safeguards that protect the confidentiality and integrity of data; and ensure equitable access to data for all stakeholders. 
At the heart of the Business Ecosystem is our dedication to fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration, where technology talent can thrive and contribute meaningfully to our mission. We are actively recruiting, from both inside and outside the Census Bureau, individuals with diverse skill sets (including software engineering, data science, cybersecurity, and cloud computing) to join our team and help drive our technology transformation forward. 
Furthermore, we are committed to investing in the continuous development and upskilling of our existing workforce, equipping them with the tools, knowledge and resources needed to embrace new technologies and adapt to evolving demands. Through training programs, mentorship opportunities and the ability to join teams to gain hands-on experience, we are empowering our employees to stay at the forefront of technological advancements. 
The Census Bureau is dedicated to delivering high-quality data products that inform decision-making, support policymakers and drive innovation. By harnessing the power of technology and nurturing a diverse and skilled workforce, we are poised to meet the challenges of today and build a stronger, more resilient Census Bureau able to support a more data-driven and inclusive society.
