Financial Analyst, Senior

The Challenge:

Do you hear project ideas and immediately start breaking down the costs associated with making that project a reality? When it comes to considering the costs of building and maintaining systems, there is more to it than parts and labor. That’s why we need you, a financial analyst who can turn requirements into a complete financial understanding for our senior management and leadership team.

As a project control, finance, and cost analyst on our team, you’ll translate requirements into cost through data collection, model building, and cost vs. risk analysis. Our projects require sophisticated analysis to produce recommendations that impact how our complex portfolio of contract types navigate throughout each project’s life cycle. We extract data through discussions with our teams, and along with other analysts, develop a variety of analytical skills in normalizing data, performing statistical regression, using learning curve analysis, and other data science techniques. You will be responsible for a wide variety of detailed financial and administrative activities and prepare budget analysis. This is your chance to gain skills in data science, while growing your cost analysis experience. Join us as we help fuel our important contracts with the funding they need.
