The Opportunity:

As a defense mission professional, you ask questions others don’t. You understand the nuances of complex situations. You use your skills to think bigger and push further, solving complex problems. We’re looking for someone like you to help create solutions for missions that keep our nation safe.

As a security cooperation analyst, you’ll bring your policy, process, authorities, and planning subject matter expertise to work on projects for the DoD.

You’ll help with identifying, analyzing, and evaluating complex systems, policies, and processes, and support the development of pseudo-foreign military sales (FMS) requirements definition and documentation, including partner nation assessments and training, equipment, and services lists. Support the tracking and maintenance of pseudo-FMS program lifecycle assessment, training, equipment, and services data to inform development of future pseudo-FMS programs and support U.S. Air Force client agility in responding to and reporting programmatic changes.

You’ll impact the work we do for the DoD as well as the solutions we deliver for DoD institutional capacity building and assessment, design, monitoring, and evaluation guidance and processes.
