Data Scientist/Engineer

The Challenge:
Do you find yourself constantly looking for more and better information? Do you want a job where you can use your knowledge and research skills to improve national security? More connected devices, larger storage capacity, and faster connections have resulted in an explosion of available information. The problem facing the intelligence community (IC) is no longer how to get more data – it's understanding how to turn massive amounts of data into answers. That's where you come in. With critical thinking and flexibility, you quickly seek out the accurate data sources, sift through the raw open-source data, and turn it into valuable intelligence. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our warfighters, protect our national security, and inform our nation's leaders.

As a Data Scientist/Engineer on our team, you’ll be on the ground floor of helping to build a platform to enable the processing and analysis of tremendous quantities of semi-structured and unstructured data.  You will help to develop and implement Machine Learning models that will extract and enrich this data to make it easier to filter and consume. You will use big data platforms to aggregate, filter, and analyze the data. You will use automated tooling to instantiate the infrastructure needed to perform this processing. You will create dashboards and other visualizations to help present the most useful information that has been extracted during large scale processing. You will also help to build tools and processes to help automate manual steps and procedures that consume large portions of analysts’ time. You will follow industry best practices and use DevSecOps principles to build sustainable, secure, and scalable systems. Empower change with us.

-5+ years of experience as a Data or Software Engineer
-Experience with Python or R
-Experience in working with Big Data platforms, including Hadoop, AWS, Azure, or DataBricks
