If you are looking for a career that can make a difference, you have come to the right place. At TMRS, the work we do matters in the lives of more than 108,500 Texas municipal employees. In the 2016 calendar year, TMRS paid over $1.2 billion to 59,000 retirees and their beneficiaries. These benefits provide a positive economic impact on the communities in which TMRS retirees live. 872 cities participate in TMRS, and this number increases each year. TMRS is considered by many as a model public pension system because it follows conservative actuarial assumptions, prudent investment management. In addition, it offers flexibility to its employer cities, and by law, must meet funding requirements. These factors have helped TMRS earn a reputation as a strong public retirement program.
There are also many great personal reasons to work for TMRS. We are located in the heart of downtown Austin, one of the most dynamic cities in the country. In addition, we offer competitive compensation with an excellent work/life balance and a flexible culture to fit the needs of our employees. Our benefits package is top notch; it includes 100% paid health and dental for employees, twelve designated holidays, and 2:1 pension matching. Other amenities include free downtown parking, an on-site gym with shower facilities, and paid long-term disability insurance.
TMRS does not sponsor applicants or employees for temporary or permanent work visas. Accordingly, applicants for employment must provide documentation which permits them to complete a USCIS Form I-9 within three days of hire.
What Our Employees Are Saying about TMRS
What we do is so important for the secure retirement of hundreds of thousands of Texans. I’ve personally known retirees whose only source of retirement income came from the Social Security Administration. I am concerned that too many employees fail to participate in their employers’ 401k or similar retirement plans. I am proud to be part of an organization created by the State of Texas that provides a firm foundation for municipal employees’ golden years.

The best part of TMRS is working with wonderful people who genuinely care about our membership. Making a difference in someone’s life is a reward unto itself.
– Eric Davis, Deputy Executive Director
One of my favorite memories at TMRS is when I informed an employee that they could receive time credit for previous years worked in a different state, making them eligible for retirement. It was a life-changing moment for that particular individual and I’ll never forget the employee’s reaction when I informed him that he could retire immediately. I love being able to do that for our members!
– Debbie Munoz, Director of Member Services

The best part of TMRS is the opportunity I get to interact with our members. This gives me a chance to educate them on the different options they have access to, knowing that they have the tools to somehow prepare for their retirement years is really fulfilling. In addition, TMRS is my second family!

I have been here close to 13 years, which I believe, is a testament to the positive, work-life balance environment that TMRS provides to its employees. I have grown with TMRS over the years and I have seen and experienced TMRS evolve through many changes all the while witnessing TMRS strive to be a caring, supportive, and successful employer, not only to its employees, but also to the members and retirees that TMRS serves. I am proud to be a part of TMRS!
