Data Science Project Manager

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 science program manager, you and your team 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 program management within strategic innovation for the federal government. You’ll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, and then use a multi-faceted team to help dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll mentor teammates, conduct technical presentations, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to position your client to turn that set of disparate data points into objective answers, to help federal health organizations make informed decisions with their data. 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 the federal government.
