AT&T is continuing to expand its accessibility group – the Corporate Accessibility Technology Office (CATO). There are multiple openings in Austin, Texas, for accessibility professionals
and in major cities nationwide for Web accessibility professionals. Be a part of implementing the new regulations requiring Accessibility in communications products and services.

These regulations are based on the U.S. 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010. If hired
into one of these positions, you will help project managers understand the requirements of the CVAA, work compliance with those requirements
into their projects, and, as also required by the CVAA, document their
efforts, successes, and work remaining to be done. (And I hope my
friends at the FCC will pardon me for this gross oversimplification of the CVAA.)

Go to http://att.jobs/ to apply online. To find each of the three types of openings, search for these job numbers: 1334873, 1334887, & 1335058.

Web Accessibility – Locations Nationwide:
These positions are focused on Web accessibility, browsers, and apps.
1334873 Professional – Business Mgmt. (Web Accessibility)

Broad Accessibility – Austin, TX:
These positions deal with all facets of accessibility across various types of telecommunications devices and for all types of disabilities.
1334887Principal – Product Development Engineer (Shared Services)
1335058Senior – Product Development Engineer (Shared Services)

The Web site provides a complete job description, including the
requirements for education, experience, and skills. Once there, you can
put your resume in for official consideration.

Do not be discouraged by the requirements for specific types of degrees –
if you are interested and have accessibility skills, pleases do apply.

If you get a message that you do not meet requirements and you are certain that you do – contact me directly at my AT&T address: Cliff_Tyllick [at] labs.att.com. I will forward your concern to the
respective hiring manager.

AT&T is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we are
committed to hiring a diverse and talented workforce. EOE/AA/M/F/D/V
