Cost Analyst, Mid

The Challenge:

What if you could use your cost analysis skills to ensure the Navy has adequate data to make decisions for deploying new capabilities? When the Navy needs to deploy new capabilities, they assess technology, cost, and performance to ensure the right solution is implemented. This type of in-depth assessment requires an analyst who has an analytical skill set to develop a program life-cycle estimate projecting the total ownership cost. That’s why we need you, a knowledgeable cost analyst who can help the Navy understand the costs of technology upgrades and new capabilities, so they can get the most from their resources.

On our team, you’ll get the opportunity to work with subject matter experts to translate technical requirements into costs. You’ll consider every potential cost element – down to the number of lines of code needed for a software upgrade – to make sure your assessment is holistic. Like creativity? You’ll be able to leverage multiple analytical techniques and modeling best practices to develop automated and dynamic excel based cost models. By building life-cycle cost models and cost-benefit analyses, you’ll provide decision makers with a full range of technical and cost impacts involved with each capability deployment. This is an opportunity to use your quantitative analytical skills as you grow your experience in advanced analytics and data visualization. Join us as we give the Navy the information they need to upgrade the fleet and protect our national security.

Empower change with us.
