Data Operations Strategist

The Challenge:

Are you passionate about helping organizations understand and reach their goals? Do you live for that “ah-ha!” moment when your client realizes you just showed them how to transform their organization? Many organizations know where they want to go, but getting there can be a challenge. We’re looking for you: a strategy consultant who can identify an organization’s long term goals and show it how to achieve them.

This is an opportunity to have a direct impact on large military data-driven organizations. As a strategy consultant on our team, you’ll engage with clients at the senior leadership level to help them understand their organization and crystallize their goals. You’ll need to ask the right questions to draw out your client’s objectives and vision. Your client will look to you to show them their organization from the outside. From unrealized potential to systemic challenges, you’ll provide your client with a holistic view of their organization, as well as the multiple paths they can take to modernize. As the strategy expert, you’ll anticipate your client’s needs as you create their way forward. Throughout the strategy life cycle, you’ll identify opportunities to expand services to new and existing clients. Join us and lead change for the better in large military data-driven organizations.
