Chief Performance Analytics Lead

The Challenge:

Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? Are you fascinated by the possibilities presented by the IoT, machine learning, and artificial intelligence advances? In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open new opportunities. As a data scientist, you can turn these complex data sets into useful information to solve global challenges. Across private and public sectors — from fraud detection, to cancer research, to national intelligence — you know the answers are in the data.

We have an opportunity for you to use your analytical skills to consult senior DoD officials and provide organizational management expertise to a DoD enterprise-level initiative. You’ll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, and then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll leverage Big Data solutions to conduct line of business assessments, communicate metrics and score card results, analyze trends, and make recommendations to improve organizational performance through changes to strategy, organization structure, process, human capital or culture, IT, cost optimization, and management practices. You will use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help senior leaders within the DoD make informed decisions. You’ll provide your customer with a deep understanding of their data, what it all means, and how they can use it. Join us as we use data science to support the DoD mission.  

Empower change with us.
