Data Scientist, 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 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 leadership and analytical skills to improve the fundamental way the DoD builds and deploys within a large DoD client while supporting broader firm growth initiatives. You’ll work closely with your customers to understand their questions and needs, architect solutions involving leading edge tools and ML/AI techniques, build teams, and then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. Apply strong technical and analytical skills to explore technical, operational, and business data from multiple disparate sources with the goal of discovering patterns and previously hidden insights. You’ll supervise teams who will use expertise in CS, software development, and the latest technologies to design and implement analysis infrastructure and tools, analytic workflow processes, and complex data visualizations. You will leverage comprehension of mathematical and statistical concepts, as well as CS and DoD communications systems expertise to bridge the gap between technologists, mission specialists, business analysts and suppliers to help your customers 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. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to use data science solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. Operationally, we will need you to recruit and grow a team that will be motivated and seen as valuable by clients and other leaders across the firm. Join us as we use data science to achieve new and remarkable solutions for our clients.

Empower change with us.
