Open Source Intelligence and Publicly Available Information Analyst, Senior

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 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 an open source intelligence (OSINT) and publicly available information (PAI) analyst on our team, you’ll explore new data sources, create effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources to support the United States Africa Command (USAFRICOM) and operational partners. Apply expertise in operations, intelligence, qualitative and quantitative analysis, and collections to enhance the client mission. Find and work with available dark web and social media content, construct new OSINT and PAI tradecraft documents and workflows, and analyze the development of OSINT and PAI tradecraft, including integration across multiple intelligence disciplines and systems. You will leverage expertise in Python or R, customize tools for select acquisition of bulk PAI data, and use internet technologies and observables, including process automation.

Empower change with us.
