Data Scientist, Senior

The Challenge:

In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open new opportunities to make the military operating forces more capable, more credible, more lethal, and more resilient. In this role, you’ll work closely with our DoD clients to understand their questions and needs, and then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. Your knowledge and experience in data science will turn these complex data sets into useful information that informs solutions. You’ll provide your clients with a deep understanding of their data, what it all means, and how they can use it. You’ll apply your analytic and methodological skills and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers to help DoD leaders make informed decisions and help solve our client's most urgent readiness and operational challenges.
