The Opportunity:

As an analytics professional, you love diving into data and turning it into meaningful insights. Do you want to use your analytical mindset and grow your technical skills while developing solutions to problems? Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open new opportunities. As a data scientist at Booz Allen, you can help turn these complex data sets into useful information to solve global challenges. Across private and public sectors, we need you to help find the answers in the data.

On our team, you’ll use your leadership skills and analytical expertise to create real-world impact. You will be working with a multi-disciplinary team of data analysts, scientists, electrical engineers, test engineers, developers, and data consumers in a fast-paced, Agile environment directly assisting Department of Defense clients, such as the U.S. Air Force, in the testing and certification of new or modified aircraft systems. You’ll work closely with clients to understand the requirements behind every effort, and then dig into their data to help find the pieces of their information puzzle. You'll develop scripts and automation tools, conduct research, draft, review, and edit analytical reports, and effectively communicate results to the client in support of their decisions. You’ll guide teammates and help lead analytical processes and 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.
