Defense Acquisition Analyst

The Challenge:

Global threat capabilities are rapidly changing as technology proliferates and becomes more accessible, lowering the barrier of entry for smaller nation states and non-state actors.  To counter these emerging threats, the Navy needs to introduce new technology and update existing technology at a much faster pace than in the previous decades.  As a Defense Acquisition Analyst, you will provide our clients with big picture strategic ideas rooted in technical and data-driven solutions that will help propel them into the future. You will work with a cross functional team of government and private stakeholders to develop, implement, and update acquisition and logistics plans that affect the design, procurement, distribution, and sustainment of Navy platforms which include surface ships, submarines, combat weapon systems, or unmanned systems. 

As a Defense Acquisition Analyst based out of the Washington Navy Yard you will work multiple projects concurrently to meet the mission objectives of major program offices across the Navy.  You can work both collaboratively in a team or independently while managing deadlines in support of the bigger strategic picture.  You are eager to grow personally and professionally and increase your skills in the acquisition, logistics, program management domains. 

You Have:

  • 5+ years of experience with DoD programs
  • Experience with managing projects and teams of various sizes
  • Experience with Microsoft Office Products, including Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Excel
  • Experience creating formal presentations, white papers, reports, or other technical writing
