Machine Learning and Computer Vision Scientist

The Challenge:

What if you could use your machine learning and computer vision background to transform high-risk, high-reward scientific research programs? As a machine learning and computer vision professional, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to helping shape and guide advanced research programs for the intelligence community. We’re looking for expertise in the development of image and video analytics to help government program managers run successful research programs.

Our team of scientists provide Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) support to programs that have the potential to provide our nation with an overwhelming intelligence advantage. That’s why we need you, a machine learning and computer vision expert, who specializes in the development of image and video analytics, to help us advise our government clients and work with research partners that come from Academia, other research institutions, and private industry. You’ll work hand in hand with the government program manager to deliver technical support and expertise on new concepts beyond the program but integral to the program’s success. We’ll look to you to share your machine learning and computer vision expertise through leadership and mentoring junior staff. Join us and take on exciting challenges in the intelligence community.

Empower change with us.
