Metropolitan/Metlang, a nationwide government contractor, is the largest provider of linguist services to the United States Department of Justice. We are currently looking to hire linguists fluent in English and Spanish to assist federal law enforcement agents with their investigations into narco-trafficking, human trafficking, counterfeiting, terrorism, fraud and money laundering.

Our linguists are hired as employees, not subcontractors, and we take pride in offering a stable work environment, competitive compensation and a weekly payroll. Linguist positions with Metropolitan/Metlang offer excellent benefits:

Weekly payroll
Competitive hourly pay rate
Medical Insurance
401(K) plan

Metropolitan/Metlang is currently recruiting Spanish linguists in the regions for which we have exclusive jurisdiction (see below). Any other company recruiting for or promising linguistic work with the DEA in these regions is most likely preparing to compete for these contracts when they are rebid and you should exercise caution when replying to their advertisements.

Required Skills:

Applicants selected will be subject to a government security background investigation and must meet eligibility and suitability requirements. All positions require vetting by the U.S. government and Metropolitan/Metlang is willing to sponsor your clearance for this position provided you meet the qualifications for access and have the required language skills. Applicants must be a U.S. Citizen in order to obtain the security clearance needed for this position.

Part of the application process includes questions specifically designed to determine your ability to qualify for a government security clearance, a key requirement for all of the positions we offer. Complete and truthful answers to these questions are crucial to your acceptance as a potential candidate. Please bear in mind that a seemingly adverse response to a question may not necessarily be a disqualifying factor, but an untruthful answer would be. The answers you provide on this questionnaire will be used as a comparison for every security document you complete in conjunction with your security access.

All applications will be handled with complete discretion.

Metlang is an EEO/AA employer: qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, status as an individual with disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty or protected veteran status in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local law.
