Management Consultant and Project Manager, Senior

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 analytics within the justice and homeland security mission area. 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 lead a team to develop analytical models and forecasts, implement data-driven decision making processes, and respond to executive-level information request, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help organizational leaders 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 justice and homeland security.

Maintain responsibility for a complex, multi-disciplinary program with homeland security and justice client. Maintain responsibility for organizing, directing, and managing all aspects of contract performance including managing taskings and contract deliverables, financial aspects, and staffing. Demonstrate a proactive, entrepreneurial, problem-solving spirit and a drive for problem solving in rapidly-changing environments. Lead and mentor staff to drive innovative thought and bring novel ideas to client challenges.

Empower change with us.
