Job Number:
Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam,HI,US
Advanced Data Scientist

The Opportunity:

As an analytics professional, you’re excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set, and you’re fascinated by the possibilities presented by IoT, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. If you care about moving a mission forward as much as advancing the field of data science, this is the opportunity for you. Your deep data science expertise and consulting mindset, coupled with an original approach to your work, will help clients and stakeholders make sense of their data and encourage actionable results. We’re looking for someone like you to lead complex data exploration and analytics projects through your experience with programming languages such as SQL, R, or Python, operationalizing models, containerization, data architecture, and cloud computing platforms for the defense sector.

The defense sector is looking for individuals with exceptional mathematical modeling backgrounds who have done outstanding work utilizing tools such as AI or ML and other state of the art algorithms. Our offices are leading efforts related to optimization of logistics planning and we would love for you to bring expertise or interest in operations research related optimization problems. Moreover, we work on problem sets more broadly that involve Natural Language Processing and text analysis, so you will be exposed to a wide variety of modeling aspects. We are looking for someone who is creative and excited about solving problems from a variety of angles!

You’ll work closely with clients to understand their questions and needs, and then dig into their data-rich environments to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll guide teammates and lead the development of algorithms and systems. You’ll use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn sets of disparate data points into objective answers to advise your clients as they make informed decisions. Ultimately, you’ll provide a deep understanding of the data, what it all means, and how it can be used.

Join us. The world can’t wait.

You Have:  

  • 5+ years of experience with mathematical modeling such as AI or ML, simulations, or data mining
  • 3+ years of experience utilizing Python for mathematical modeling and data work leveraging standard libraries such as NumPy, pandas, matplotlib, or scikit-learn
  • Knowledge of mathematics such as linear algebra, vector calculus, and optimization
  • Ability to break down complex problems into tractable programmatic and mathematical pieces that can be effectively solved in an organized and efficient manner
  • Ability to obtain a security clearance
  • Master's degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) field such as Physics, Statistics, Engineering, or CS

Nice If You Have:  

  • Experience with distributed data and computing tools such as Spark, MapReduce, or Hadoop
  • Experience working with cloud-based environments such as AWS
  • Experience with Generative AI techniques, including LLMs
  • Experience with Reinforcement Learning
  • Experience with evolutionary and genetic algorithms
  • Experience solving optimization problems from an operations research perspective such as linear and nonlinear programming and constraint programming
  • Experience with parallel computing techniques such as multithreading and multiprocessing for producing highly efficient code
  • Experience writing production-level code for maximal efficiency, speed, and reliability
  • Doctorate degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) field such as Physics, Statistics, Engineering, or CS

Applicants selected will be subject to a security investigation and may need to meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information.
