Imagery Analyst, Senior

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day to support national security. What if you could use your analytical skills to help your client 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 imagery analyst, you use your specialized technical, regional, and functional experience and your attention to detail to develop imagery-based intelligence that gives 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 client and national leadership.

As an imagery analyst on our team, you’ll help your client understand and evaluate adversarial capabilities by applying imagery analysis and photogrammetric tradecraft. You will recommend the most efficient analytic strategies to acquire and accurately mensurate the data they require. Using your understanding of various collection platform capabilities and applications, you will help your client develop effective information fusion strategies combining GEOINT with other sources, including SIGINT, ELINT, MASINT, and open-source to develop comprehensive reporting that informs your client and provides them with actionable intelligence. You’ll validate the information and apply imagery analysis tradecraft as you work to further refine collection strategies and analytic approaches to existing and emerging problem sets for targeteers, warfighters, senior policymakers, internal clients, and the US IC-wide stakeholders. As the authority in your tradecraft, 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 Automated Tipping and Queueing software modeling tools, 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 clients, warfighters, national leaders, and policymakers.
