Geospatial Analyst

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day in our government and our military. What if you could use your analytical skills to help them make informed decisions? With all the information available today, it takes a skilled analyst to know how to find and interpret the best data to give their clients the right answers. As a Tech-enabled Geospatial Analyst, you use your specialized technical and analytical experience and your attention to detail to work as part of a diverse contract team performing in-depth technical analysis of foreign conventional and irregular warfare threats to US ground force systems, combat support systems, and US operations. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to produce finished all-source intelligence products that adhere to client and IC standards using a multi-discipline approach including HUMINT, IMINT/GEOINT, MASINT, SIGINT, and OSINT tools and databases.

As a Tech-enabled Geospatial Analyst on our team, you’ll be responsible for identifying the customer's data source requirements and applying data reconnaissance techniques that help your client understand their operational landscape and mission environment. Using your comprehensive understanding of various collection platforms and technologies, you’ll explore new data sources, build effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources. You’ll validate the information and analyze tradecraft as you build assessments for senior policymakers and internal client publications. As operational enablers, geospatial analysts integrate imagery analysis of terrain mapping, route planning, and maritime geospatial activity into all-source production to directly support the client’s production, plans, and operations. Analytical duties include interpretation of data from a variety of sources to develop and support force-on-force ground scenarios, identifying significant intelligence trends within a range of activities, and delivering strategic and anticipatory finished assessments. You will build analytical workflows and methodologies using these data sources and create or implement new or existing tools and capabilities. You will combine information from multiple sources to help your client understand their mission environment more effectively. This is a chance to grow your expertise, develop new skills, and share your methodologies with the intelligence community. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our customer.
