Data Scientist

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 up 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 improve the intelligence community. 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 develop algorithms, write scripts, build predictive analytics, use automation, apply machine learning, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help senior leadership 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 for good in the intelligence community.

Apply data mining techniques, perform statistical analysis, and build high-quality prediction models. Obtain data through advanced computerized models, extrapolate data patterns through advanced algorithms, develop graphs and charts to explain how the information will influence the specific project or business, present to managers how to best alter their business models to generate future trends, and discover patterns and previously hidden insights. Apply broad domain expertise to comprehend data origins and context to ensure consistency of data, merge data sources together, and help others to gain a better comprehension of data.

Empower change with us.
