Project Analyst, Mid

The Challenge:

Are you looking to expand your skills in consulting or transition to consulting from the military? Do you have intermediate to advanced skills that will help clients manage and improve their programs? If so, a mid-level consulting role as a project analyst might be the role for you! We are searching for the best and the brightest who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get the dirty work accomplished for our clients while also serving as strategic advisors in their area of expertise. A program requires a significant investment of limited resources across multiple functional areas. With that level of complexity, you need skilled talent to apply functional expertise and pull all the information together for our clients to keep the program on the path to success. That’s why we need you, a project analyst who can ensure success through careful analysis, a proven and growing expertise, and effective communication.

We have an opportunity for a project analyst to join our team as we help our clients build the next generation of IT products, including software, hardware, networks, radios, satellites, and more for the military and DoD. You’ll work with program leadership to provide functional or program-level expertise to help ensure cost, schedule, and performance parameters of a program are met, using tools, including Microsoft Excel to support budget and tracking information, Project to manage schedules, Word to develop contractual and other technical documents, and PowerPoint to develop presentations. The real power of program management comes from communication, so you’ll work with other experts on the program team to complete meaningful deliverables and make recommendations for improvements to program leadership. 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. This is a chance to directly impact our service members while learning how to grow your program analyst and management skills and eliminate risks across the program. Join us and help make sure our DoD acquisition program stays on-time and within budget as we improve IT capabilities for the military!
