Open Source Analyst, Senior

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day in our government and military. What if you could use your analytical skills to help them make informed decisions? With all the information available today, it takes a skilled analyst to know how to find and interpret the best data to give their clients the right answers. As an OSINT analyst, you use your specialized language skills and regional and functional and your attention to detail to develop cutting edge collection methods, intelligence products, and analytic assessments to give your client the actionable intelligence and context they need. 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 OSINT analyst on our team, you’ll help your client understand mission environment. Using your understanding of various collection platforms, you’ll explore new data sources, build effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources. You’ll validate information and apply client tradecraft as you build assessments for senior policymakers. As the authority on your functional and regional area, your client will look to you for time critical recommendations, often under pressure. This is a chance to grow your expertise, develop new skills in open source collection and advanced analytics 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. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our warfighters, nation’s leaders, and policy makers.
