Research Data Scientist, 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 national security. 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 strategic innovation.

Empower change with us.

Leverage technical and analytical expertise to explore and examine data from multiple disparate sources and types, including natural language and image video, with the goal of discovering patterns and previously hidden insights, which can provide a competitive advantage or address a pressing business problem. Leverage expertise in CS, software development, and the latest technologies to design and implement analysis infrastructure and tools, analytic workflow processes, image analysis, and complex data visualizations. Perform advanced research into the use of quantum computing for machine learning, numerical optimization, and related data science problems, and convey results at a technical and non-technical level, including writing journal articles, presenting at academic conferences, and producing white papers and briefings to non-technical audiences. Serve as the client interface with responsibility across the entire life cycle, including requirements gathering and analysis, process and systems definition, data analysis, and presentation of analysis to clients in a format they can digest and development of algorithm driven products and solutions.
