The Florida Department of Management Services is conducting a nationwide search for Florida’s statewide Chief Information Officer to lead the newly formed Division of State Technology. Governor DeSantis signed legislation creating the Division of State Technology to support and oversee all state technology assets beginning July 1.
“Florida’s CIO will have the opportunity to create unparalleled value for taxpayers and drive innovative solutions for sister agencies that serve our communities,” Said DMS Secretary Jonathan Satter. “I am excited to see what new tools can be leveraged to lead Florida into the future of state technology.”
In addition to managing all state technology assets, Florida’s CIO will serve on Florida’s cybersecurity task force and implement Florida’s new cloud first policy, helping state agencies more effectively leverage cloud-based solutions that are often more secure, flexible, and less expensive than on-site hardware solutions.
The nationwide search will continue until a qualified candidate is identified. Applicants should apply at https://jobs.myflorida.com/job/TALLAHASSEE-State-Chief-Information-Officer-72985001-FL-32399/571646700/ to be considered for this position.
