Counter Drug Analyst

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? Never has the role of Counter Drug Analyst been so meaningful. More connected devices, larger storage capacity, and faster connections have resulted in an explosion of available information. The problem facing the intelligence and counternarcotic community is no longer how to get more data – it’s understanding how to turn the data they have 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 protect our national security.

As a Counter Drug Analyst on our team, you’ll provide an in-depth analysis of drug trafficking organization intentions, networks, and capabilities. You’ll validate the information and apply client tradecraft as you build assessments for senior policymakers. This is a chance to grow your expertise, develop new skills, and share your methodologies with other analysts. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. You’ll leverage expertise in Counter Drug Analysis techniques, methodologies, tools, and databases to inform senior policymakers and DoD officials of military capabilities, political-military issues and military strategies, and the doctrine and intent of the specified client area of responsibility (AOR). You’ll develop and maintain expertise in Data Transfer Objects (DTOs) operating globally and analyze their ability to disrupt and destabilize governments in their regions. You’ll analyze the development and author products tailored to clients in tactical to strategic levels, including actionable leads, complex written products, and formal or informal briefings. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our policymakers.
