The Federal Reserve is looking for Customer Service Representatives for its nationwide payment and transaction processing systems. In this role, you will use your customer service, technical, and problem-solving skills to support financial institutions in accessing and using Federal Reserve Financial Services (FRFS) and platforms accessed through FedLine Solutions.

We are currently leading a strategic effort to transform FRFS to a national, enterprise-focused organization.

Through our evolved structure, we will meet the needs of the marketplace for new products and services more quickly, we will seek to provide a more robust and unified customer experience across our financial service offerings, and we will create new career growth opportunities for FRFS staff.

We are seeking leaders to set the vision, strategy, values, and priorities that enable FRFS to achieve its mission. Our leaders must demonstrate a strategic, action-oriented mindset focused on intellectual curiosity, agility, accountability, and the ability to drive innovation through experimentation. To achieve our vision for a people-focused organization with a strong collaborative and innovative culture, we expect our leaders to champion an inclusive environment and demonstrate our values in how we work and interact with each other and our broader community.
