The Challenge:

Do you want to work at the forefront of advanced technology and solve complex data challenges? You know that data yields pivotal insights when it’s gathered from disparate sources and organized. As a data engineer, you have the chance to develop and deploy the pipelines and platforms that make this data meaningful. What’s more, you’ll have the chance to grow Booz Allen’s DataOps capabilities while working with a multi-disciplinary team of analysts, data engineers, data scientists, developers, and data consumers in a fast-paced, agile environment. We’re looking for someone like you to ensure our clients meet their mission by changing the face of healthcare. 

This is an opportunity to support data engineering activities on some of the most mission-driven projects in the industry. Driving research and data engineering efforts, you’ll have the chance to architect data systems, build out ETL pipelines, write custom code, interface with data stores, perform data ingestion, and build data models. From performing analytical exploration and examination of data to leading the assessment, design, building, and maintenance of scalable platforms, you’ll guide your clients to solve their most pressing challenges.
